Police: ‘Remain Vigilant Regarding Burglaries’

November 10, 2012

The police encouraged the public to “remain vigilant regarding burglaries,” noting that residents are advised to secure their air conditioning units, as there have been some burglaries where the culprit(s) gained entry by removing window air conditioning units.

The full statement follows below:

Once again the Bermuda Police Service would like to advise the public to remain vigilant regarding burglaries. In particular residents are advised to secure their air conditioning units, while making sure all windows and doors are locked before leaving their homes unattended – as recently there have been reported burglaries where the culprit(s) apparently gained entry by tampering with or removing window air conditioning units.

We also continue to recommend that all residents secure their valuables out of sight. In addition, take pictures and record serial numbers of all personal property, especially electronic equipment and jewellery – so that if they are stolen and later recovered, there is an accurate way of identifying them.

Members of the public are encouraged to report any suspicious activity in their neighbourhoods to the police by contacting 295-0011 at the earliest opportunity. The public is reminded that receiving stolen property is an offence punishable under the law.

    Remain vigilant, deal with it yourself, count on those around you to help, and if you need someone to take notes then do nothing, call the police!

    This article is in reference to my area (happy valley, not that any other areas should be less vigilant) and I’ve seen recently a heightened police presence, like I’ve actually seen police patroling :O, so well done BPS, have to give them credit where its due. Seems like they cleaned up some of the garbage from HV Belvins parking lot too. Ma’a dolla gets annoying fast, ma get five dollas is insanity.
