It’s been another uncannily quiet week (March 28 to April 3) on Mowbray’s crime front – only eight reported incidents, of which seven were in Sector One. Those incidents were:
- Three housebreakings: Guildford Road and Lower York Road on Friday, and Strubens Road on Saturday;
- One business break-in: Station Road;
- One theft from a car: Cheltenham Road on Tuesday;
- One stolen car: Christow Road on Wednesday.
Part of the reason for this, I suspect, is that UCT, other tertiary institutions and schools were on holiday. Also, the SAPS staged a major clean-up operation right across the Claremont cluster and many arrests were effected.
Great news – and let’s keep fighting the crime menace!
This mirrors the ADT incident report for April 1-3: Three open gates and one open garage door, and that’s it. Sometimes we are our own worst enemies!
