THE Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) has urged the public to always be alert and advised not to leave their properties unsecured or outside their homes as this may lead to criminal activities.
This was stated in a press release that described an operation carried out at 8.30am yesterday, involving 32 personnel as an initiative for crime prevention as well as to search and detect perpe-trators.
Focusing on the Mukim Lumut area, inspections were made on two scrap metal businesses in Kampong Sg Bakong and Kg Tunggulian. Patrols were also carried out around the areas of Kg Sg Lalit, from Kg Sg Bakong to Kg Sg Kayu, as well as RPN Kg Lumut.
However, no criminal activities were uncove-red during yesterday’s operation but some resi-dents were found to have kept their belongings in an unsafe condition, which included Jet Ski equipment, gas cylinders and ladders outside the house.
Some homes were also discovered to be empty with their gates not closed.
The operation, which was led by the Assistant District Commanding Officer of Belait and en-ded at noon, involved officials from the Crimi-nal Investigation Department (CID), Immediate Response Squad (IRS), Seria Police Station, Sungai Liang Police Station and the Kuala Belait Police Station.
