Drone used for Burglary Reconnaissance in Carletonville, Gauteng, South Africa.

Criminals in Carletonville have now devised a new plan to outwit observant residents and the police.
Mr Johan Coetzer, showed the Herald a shocking video of the new means that some criminals have now started using. According to him, he and his wife heard a buzzing sound in the air outside their home one evening.

‘We could see that our dog, who is very alert and was with us at the time, had heard it as well. We talked about it and decided it must have been the wind,’ he says.

It was only after some of their property disappeared from the family’s yard last Wednesday night, however, that the truth came to light. Coetzer says he immediately noticed that something was wrong when he walked out the front door on Thursday morning. After looking around, he noticed that a hose and lights that had been put up in their front yard were missing.
