Earlier today we shared a media release titled “Think like a criminal to make your home less of a target for criminals”. Our residences are often targeted by experienced thieves knowing exactly what they want and targeting specific items, leaving us baffled as to what has been taken and what has been left untouched!
Three laptops have been stolen from the home of Congress of the SA Trade Unions national spokesperson Patrick Craven, he said on Wednesday.
“What was interesting was that the laptops were the only things taken,” Craven said.
“It does seem odd…. You would have thought they’d grab everything they could.”
Craven’s home in Alberton, east of Johannesburg, was broken into on Tuesday night.
“I was home last night but did not hear anything,” he said.
Craven said he hoped police would track down the thieves.
Police could not immediately confirm the theft.
