Hi I just start working and moved to Puchong a few months back, few days ago my house got broken into in broad daylight.

They took among other things
1. A dell laptop
2. A Lumix Panasonic camera
3. A Casio Exilim camera
4. Cash including foreign ones
5. Coin/cash collections

It was quite a big loss for me. Just want everybody to be extra careful and do not leave any valuable at home expecially to those that just moved to KL. Cops here not much of a help too.
And becareful if any one offering to sell those stuff to you. If can, pls pm me. Would reward if can get back the notebook and coin/cash collection. (i know its a slim hope)

Was planning to buy a house in Puchong but now having 2nd thoughts. To those that are currently living in Puchong. Is it a dangerous neighbourhood? Was planning to buy the 28 unit nearly completed 18x65 d/s house in puchong hartamas. Is it a good buy? REALLY REALLY scared to get broke into again. Any feedback is welcome? Thanks.

I don’t think there is anymore safe place to live in in Klang valley…even smaller town too subjected to break-ins. Probably kampong areas are the least break-in prone area. I do still remember while leaving in an Estate where when we leave the house, we hardly lock em! That was more than a decade back!

In selecting a good place, it defers from person to person, what are your priorities and preferences..

burglary is big business in the klang valley

our police force are tied up with storming vice dens and tracing the 50000 chinese illegeals in this country

perhaps we need additional manpower to addressed petty crimes like theft and burglary???

probably in the old days everbody was equally poor so that's why less theft

Daylight break-ins do not only happen in Puchong as it can can happen anywhere including Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam where I used to live & in apartments too. If you find that at least one of your neigbour's property is unoccupied or its occupant(s) are seldom home, then it is advisable to be wary & take precautionary measures to help deter break-ins.

Some basic precautionary measures include getting advise from reputable alarm installers (do install one if its within your budget), analysing fault(s) on your existing grille design, adding extra locks, adding extra wood trusses at roof areas (especially at the lower ground area- for landed properties), turning on a timer-controlled electrical device (ie. radio, tv, light, etc.), having a guard dog, changing your in/out routines occasionally, tinting your property windows & of course getting your neighbours to help keep an eye on your property are some ways to deter burglary. Although, non of the above offer 100% security nor arranged in order of importance, but at least it helps deter break-ins.

Can't advise you much on the security at Puchong Hartamas but do keep a set of your local police, neighbour's contact numbers & any other important tel. nos. with you all the time.

Hope it helps. :)

Even if you are staying in condos , you need to play it safe by installing a alarm system as a back up.. since you can't keep a Rottweiler in your apartment. Security staff at most condos are unreliable. There are also syndicates which rent apartments and lay low and do their "research' and break into 5-6 apartments at one go.
