We are hearing of robberies almost every day - with the money changers loosing their 'jobs' there are a lot of people out there with nothing to support their families with - so they turn to crime. this is the Antihijack trust February update:
February has seen a marked increase in the amount of armed robberies with the common denominator being CASH. It seems that now it is legal to trade and carry forex there are many more incidences. We ask you all to be very vigilant and to be aware of your surroundings when cashing up and transporting the day’s takings. Do not leave doors unlocked and keys lying around, this all leads to becoming a prime target. These gangs seem more focused on the forex than any other items, which have been taken in past months. For those of you that are walking keep your money in a safe pocket or place as there is a marked increase in petty theft with victims being held at knife point and their hard earned cash stolen from them. With the high percentage of unemployment in the country there are a lot of very hungry people out there, so be warned, do NOT become a unnecessary victim due to carelessness. It is not wise to keep a large some of money at home you maybe under surveillance and your movements noted so it may be wise to change times and routes when traveling to and from home and business. We all need to become very aware of what is going on out there. Smash and grabs are still happening at traffic lights and please remember to keep all valuables out of sight, i.e. mobiles, handbags, wallets, briefcases, shopping and expensive sun glasses etc it only takes a few seconds and can happen before you even realize that you have become a victim. Your BOOT is the safest place ! Borrowdale, Mount Pleasant, Gun Hill, Milton Park, Mabelreign and Marlborough have been reported this month. To be seen talking on your mobile whilst driving is a sure give away of lack of concentration especially if you are not using the legal correct ‘hands off’ appliances that are available.
Land Cruiser owners please be aware that these vehicles are being targeted and reported stolen in the Highlands, Chisipte, Borrowdale areas
Lets all make a difference this coming month
Let’s fight this crime together - stay ALERT and SAFE !
