    Default Two men arrested for spate of break-ins

    A friend was telling me that such cases is becoming more and more common even in places like minister's residential area in district 10. he is suspecting that it could be due to all the A&A activities.

    Police have arrested two men believed to be involved in various private residential estate break-ins in Simei, Siglap Frankel, Simpang Bedok and Pasir Panjang.

    Alteration and Additional. This is when olded landed get redeveloped.

    When you have workers or contractors hanging around the estates for many months chances are they will be able to know the movement of the people living around that estate or even make friends with their helpers.

    increase from 60+ cases in 2011, to 100 cases in 2012. 50% rise.

    Thats definitely not a good thing for landed owner. Very soon, they will all need to install metal grill like HDB flat liao.

    Even then, it is one too many.
    Article seems to suggest trend may increase. We have been targeted. Everyone must increase their vigilance and form neighbourhood watch.

    I think one forummer here already experienced it first hand, and thats why he sold his landed property to live in condo.

    Perhaps this is the reason why some Singaporeans are willing to pay 15-20m to live in penthouses instead of landed property

    actually that was abt 20 years ago. at that time, security technology not as gd as it is today.

    today, we hv cctv, motion dectectors, infa-red sensors, heat seeking detectors, etc. and much cheaper now, not easy for the crooks lah.

    from 66 cases to 100 cases in 2012 despite of advancement in security technology? only goes to show that burglar today are alot smarter than before.

    Better to live in sky villa instead of having to cage yourself up.

    Quality of life is not measure by the size of the home you own.

    And yes, 100 case of break in is definitely not acceptable in Singapore because landed property owners are paying through the nose to live in them.

    Are you going to let news articles and fear mongering affect your choice of accommodation?

    Readers here are definitely more astute than that.

    Who could be more objective than someone who has been through a housebreak and sold off their landed?

    Why downgrade and bang head?

    If you want to quote may2012, why didnt you quote the below statement from the same thread? Again, selective reading and paraphrasing like you always do....if you dont know what I mean, go watch these videos..

    Not forgetting public transports usually do not ply within landed estates. School going children and grannies have to be vigilant if they need to walk to a bus stop or MRT stations.

    Beside the spade of break-ins in Siglap not too long ago, this is another reminder.....

    So security was one of the reasons we move to high rise condo w guards.

    Landed owners save some money under false sense of security.

    This is a Real Fact.

    Who is being selective and need to use big red fonts to try to sway readers?

    If readers here want to know the whole story. These are all the relevant posts in chronological order from earliest to latest. Let the readers here be the judge of the views of someone who actually went though a housebreak and sold off his landed.

    Aiyo, may2012 is still alive, why do you need to paraphrase and cook up story on his/her behalf.

    Just ask lah.


    As for those enlarged font in read, I am just trying to make it real obvious about your selective reading and posting habit...

    Someone obviously doesn't get the point here. What should be of most concern to readers is not why he sold but what were his feelings or views after making that decision which is why this post below is the most relevant.
