Businesses: Tighten security

2007-12-18 00:00

Police have called on businesses to take extra security precautions during the festive season.

Police spokesman Senior Superintendent Henry Budhram said that a rise in robberies is often seen at this time of the year.

He warned businesses to be on the alert and not to keep large sums of money on the premises whenever possible.

This warning came after armed robbers got away with a substantial amount of money when they robbed a supermarket in Hoosen Haffajee (Berg) Street yesterday morning.

Budhram said a group of about seven armed men confronted security guards at Kwezi Supermarket and held up the staff as they entered the building while opening up the shop.
