A number of burglaries have been reported in various parishes throughout the island recently and Police are reminding the public to remain vigilant.

A police spokesperson said, “Once again the Bermuda Police Service would like to advise the public remain vigilant regarding burglaries. Recently there have been a number of burglaries reported in various parishes throughout the island.

“The public is encouraged to make sure all windows and doors are locked before leaving their homes unattended, even for short periods of time.

“In addition, the public is reminded to secure their cars by locking all doors and windows before leaving their vehicles unattended. We also continue to recommend that all residents secure their valuables out of sight, record serial numbers of all items and take pictures of their possessions.

“In particular, make note of electronic equipment and jewelry – 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 neighborhoods to the police by contacting 295-0011. The public is reminded that receiving stolen property is an offense punishable under the law.”

    • Fsbod says:

      Yeah there may not be full time positions… but there’s a lot of part time positions and odd jobs around.

      Obviously these a drug users or kids. No unemployed sober adult robs houses just to get by.

    • Regina says:

      Or maybe these thugs better hurry up and get themselves employable?

    • HOTDOG says:

      They need to get up and find their own work .

    • Bloopbleepbloop says:

      I was employed for almost 2 years and didn’t turn to crime. Please, praise me for my restraint.

      • Bloopbleepbloop says:

        *unemployed

        I guess that’s what I get for being snarky

    • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

      Maybe you need to start a few businesses to employ them…or should the OBA raise your taxes to supplement them…The choice is yours.
      Have you never been told that you need to sacrifice to survive..? That also goes for people too…If you are not part of the “Corporate Class”, guess what that makes you…”Sacrificial Lamb”…and who enjoys a good sacrifice more than Satan himself.

    How sad that Bermuda has come to this. I remember when you could leave your doors unlatched,bikes not all chained, and be OK with it. Now, I guess tourists may as well vacation in Chicago or Miami and for much cheaper! Keep it up, Bermuda, you are shooting yourself in the foot.

    • Jamaica has one of the highest murder rates in the world, and tourist are flocking there, can someone explain that.

  4. Thumbitdown says:

    It’s worldwide people. We are not different from the rest of the world.

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

    Some people wear ties and steal and some people wear gloves and steal…They both need the same punishment…I have the recommended sentences if you’re interested.

  6. See …now….if caught they sre an intruder…anything considered to be a weapon and it is a perceivable threat to life …what type of force do you utilise when a weapon is present …within your dwelling?….you tell me.

    • Keepin' it Real!...4Real! says:

      You use due force of course…you can use lethal force if a threat to your life or someone else’s life is imminent. I could kill someone if they were trying to murder you.

  8. bluebird says:

  9. bluebird says:

    And i say again with such BOREDOM we have 11,300 work permits issued in Bermuda.
    Where are so e of the 11,300 Bermudians to take or fill these jobs??.
    Where else in the World do they have such an excess of employment for the local population.
    You really are SO BORING all the time saying the OBA better find jobs for these lazy thugs as we have a majority or BERMUDIANS DOING VERY WELL THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
    It took time and effort some blood sweat and tears .
    And they are not about to give some of it or any of it because it is only fair.
    Or any of that other Liberal Crap.

  10. Bond together and back each other up any stranger that isn’t from that area…is suspect.

  11. Put a go pro on you bike or truck or car and drive around your neighbourhood…unconspicuously…then send suspicious activity to bps via emàil…asàp!

  12. On the dash board or on your handle bars…
