Based on the recent house break-ins in SS20, the modus operandi of most opportunist burglars goes like this:
Once a house has been targeted, the burglar will ring the doorbell first to see if anyone is at home. If someone comes to the door, he will go off.
If the house is not occupied, he will prepare to enter the house.
Notify your neighbours if you are going away so that they can keep an eye on your house. Be alert to strangers loitering or driving slowly and checking out the houses in your area. If in doubt, alert the police by calling any of the following numbers:
1) SS20 Police Hotline : 016 3199 199
2) Balai Polis Petaling Jaya : 03 7966 2222
