@powerhouse You have started a very interesting topic at the old forum but unfortunately it is not migrated to this new forum. Would like to continue the discussion here:
Recent cases about the theft and burglary in Miri have reach a tremendous worrying level. Thief and burglar like normal people come and steal even in the daylight.
Report to police has been made but to no avail. They are not so effective anymore in times of need.
One of the reason that give the best room to these thieves and burglars is the existence of the backlane of the housing area for example two rows back to back houses. These backlane area walking path which is unlocked has been the main reason why the thieves and burglars dare to come and rob in the daylight. These backlanes are said to give the room for the Sarawak Gas people to check the meter which only cost about RM5 or RM10 the most, but imagine the whole house being robbed which cost about 1k to 10k worth of goods and money!!
We must actually stop these lane usage to ease the Sarawak Gas which give rise to the burglar or thieves to access to our house. We must not allow this thing to happen and we must CLOSED the backlane. New methods need to be implemented.
We are scared of the thieves and we must also implement a new Housing System to prevent Burglar or any alien people can access the area. Need to have a new centralized system which automated link to the police station.
Policeman need to be more proactive in solving the reported cases.
