Police are investigating another chain snatching which took place on Thursday [Aug 9] in Devonshire, with the police noting there have been “multiple incidents of chain snatching reported to police this week, and we believe that they are being committed by the same individuals.”

A police spokesperson said, “Police are investigating another incident of chain snatching which took place on Thursday 9th August on Barker’s Hill, Devonshire.

“Around 10:45am, a male motorcyclist was traveling in a southerly direction along Barker’s Hill when two men on another motorcycle rode along side him. The two suspects attempted to grab the victims chain before making their escape toward Parson’s Lane, Devonshire.

“There have been multiple incidents of chain snatching reported to police this week, and we believe that they are being committed by the same individuals.

“Police are appealing to anyone who may have seen two men on a motor cycle acting suspiciously in the Barker’s Hill, Parson’s Lane or Vesey Street areas, to contact the Criminal Investigation Unit on 247-1044 or the confidential Crime Stoppers line on 800-8477.

“All of these incidents appear to have been opportunistic with randomly selected targets. We are again urging motorcyclists to properly conceal jewellery and other personal items when travelling to avoid being targeted.”

    They need to cut off their hands when they find them. Nast buggers and to think they are someone’s children. Parents have to be accountable for raising these gangsters.
