Warning for Outer West schools

2016-04-12 06:00

THE “Gadget Gang” that devastated Pietermaritzburg schools stealing computers, cell phones and breaking into safes has now moved into the Durban area with many Durban and Upper Highway schools having already been targeted in the last few weeks with one high school being hit as recently as Saturday evening.

Durban private investigator Rick Crouch said, “The modus operandi of the “Gadget Gang” is; they will break in through the roof, when the alarm triggers they will wait for the security company to give the all clear after which they will disable the alarm, telephones and any CCTV. They then proceed to break into computer labs and will use an angle grinder on any safe that is found. Schools should employ additional security guards for the short term, specifically during evenings and over weekends.”
