    When you catch them , fry them .

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      Just sticking their hands in the fryer for awhile should provide enough deterrent to ever thinking about doing it again.

  2. nuffin but the truth says:

    prefer to see them roasted!

  3. Sparky says:

    Probably needed money to get a bucket of KFC !

  4. Dasher says:

    Deep fry them both.

  5. Awake says:

    We already know that if these idiots are caught, the judge (more than likely, Warner) will give them a slap on the wrist. This is why we continue to have these problems in Bermuda. The police do their due diligence with their arrests, and the judges come along and set them free!

    • Raymond Ray says:

      “Ain’t dat-de-troof?” Far too often we see that particular Magistrate, (A. Warner) cut the crooks too much slack :-(

  6. wow says:

    NO CCTV, here we go again….thanks BPS for not enforcing, BAS-SERCO for not keep there deadline.

    • Ruthless says:

      Why are you saying police not enforcing idiot

  7. Come Correct says:

    Mr. Chicken…express… Clearly these guys never heard the saying “go big or go home”… Desperation at its finest.

  9. boogiedownproductions says:

    just praying the staff are able or willing to continue to work this shift without fear . as for the culprits you will be found sooner than later and my hope is the judge has no mercy on you… to the law makers and judges its time you get TOUGH on these crimes

    This is an semi isolated area which requires Security and CCTV System – it’s not 100% effective but at least it
    give a business like this a Chance. — the criminals flow up and down Bermuda 24/7 looking for any weak spot.
    At least 60% of small business that stay open after dark has been victim to a robbery.

    • rich says:

      Seriously?!? 60%? You can back that figure up?

  12. Truth is killin' me... says:


  13. TV Presenter says:

    Good attempt by that Policeman, he appeared a little frightened to speak into the camera.

  14. under cover diva says:

    There are cameras around the whole building.they were caught on tape.but helmets & hoodies covered their identity

  15. Lone Wolf says:

    Too true. The Court system here is a big joke. In America, guys will get 20 plus years for attempted armed robbery. And they will serve at least 10 years before being eligible for parole. By which time they will have HAD to commit another crime while inside in order to stay alive or at least not be someone’s Ho, so they end up doing the whole 20 (if not more).

    HERE …. They’ll get 2 years for attempted armed robbery and be released from court because they already served 1 1/2 years on remand.

    That’s just the way it is. It’s almost worth it to do the crime here. Especially if you get a BIG haul and they don’t find it.

    Expect to see a LOT more of this with all the unemployed Bermudians out here. It won’t be just young gangsters doing it. The average working class citizens will start robbing because we just CANNOT survive without jobs any other way!

  16. Crazy says:

    He sounds kinda retarded…..

  17. Blooper says:

    give them a bucket of squid and drop them of at the outside of the banks, throw there sorry asses overboard, poor some chum in the water and leave, if by chance they make landfall fair game. that is real justice if caught and proven guilty although therein lies the downfall, Bda courted are a JOKE. Time for the judges to stand up and DEMAND STRONGER sentencing powers

  18. We all write our blogs; we all run our gossiping mouths; we all get together at one point or the other and discuss what has happened island wide but we all don’t, won’t n will not help or try to help eradicate the deterioration of this island’s health and wealth because we are waiting for the police n government to do everything to serve n protect us.
    We mainly put ourselves in this sad state of affairs as we have been so use to having things right in place over the years and we grew so accustomed to it, that now everything is out of place and we can’t see for looking. Even when some know whom these perpetrators are, we keep our mouths shut, and when our mouths should be shut, they are wide open talking a bunch of nothings.
    Sorry for KFC but more sorry for Bermuda as we are not at ALL united as a people and until we pull together we will experience worse issues with more serious ramifications. Naivety plays a major role within this island n until we recognize that fact, it will be what it is as it is. Police can only do so much n babysitting really isn’t part of their regime even though it squeezes into their call of duty.
    We shoot ourselves in the foot n expect the police to go find the shooter… That’s the type of mentality some have. KFC anyone?

  19. Fruity says:

    Idk if I’m more amazed with these sad threatening people or the fact that there is a Mr. C EXPRESS!!!!!! Sad & cool, all in one experience for me… Must visit!

    Crooks, find a better path! PLEASE
