Durban - While house robberies and burglaries in Westville have shown a decline in today's crime statistics, Westville resident Mike Myers and former chairman of Westville CPF, said it was actually not a true reflection of the current situation.
"If you had to look at the issue of house robberies in the last four months in both Westville and Cowie's Hill area, you will see an increase."
A burglary is defined as when no one is at home, while a robbery is when people are present.
Myers who runs an emergency services company attributed the increase to high levels of unemployment.
"It's just become easier for people to make a career out of crime," he said.
