    People need to secure their cars by getting car alarms, the lock for the steering wheel, clamp the wheels, put small cameras in the car which can be viewed on your smart phones all of these things and more are available here and on Amazon. But as Bermudians are they will do these things and tell everybody they have had them or have the equipment in the car pahleeze

      If I was a criminal…

      Steering lock + dash cam = $45 not including shipping.

      Balaclava/face veil = $5 not including shipping.

      Joyride in your car with the BPS completely oblivious = priceless

      I bought 10lbs of teeth which turned into 75lbs of teeth with a bad attitude for strangers. I think I invested my money better.

    • Not concerned at all says:

      You don’t need all that stuff. Just take the keys out and lock the car.

      Apparently someone in the Paget/Warwick area needs a ride from time to time, and they figured out that taking someone else’s car is better than taking the bus. Free gas, not having to pay for insurance, leave it somewhere when you’re done. Good deal.

    Seems like a pattern form in Paget – Warwick areas with these car thefts. What gives? No money for a taxi after work?

  3. Vance says:

    The question I ask is are these cars being hot wired or are people leaving keys in the cars!!

    All the cameras around this island, how are they getting away with this?

    • thetruth says:

      I don’t think there is someone looking at each camera in real-time.

      • Of course no-one is looking at every camera but, the nearest camera can be reviewed, (that’s if the info. is being recorded.)
        How can so many vehicle be removed and then simply vanish? This just betwixt me :-(

      • Come Correct says:

        If the cameras record to a hard drive you don’t need someone to watch them. Due to the lack of prosecutions they clearly don’t.

  5. Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

    instead of cameras erected every where like a prison yard why aren’t police being proactive and setting some bait cars..??

    • Juice says:

      +1 for bait cars. After a few persons are caught, word will get around and car theft would go down. But then again, these kinds of operations cost money, and “we dont got none”.
      Lock down your vehicles people!

    • Varied says:

      Some people have called for similar for bikes in the past, no idea if it’s been considered (or tried) by the police.

    Uh oh , if I’m not mistaken I know that number well , and therefore I’m lead to believe that it wasn’t in fact at Riddell’s Bay public wharf but was on nearby private waterfront property .
    Somebody definitely was not where they should have been to get their hands on this car as there would have been a whole lot of trespassing going on .
