Six People Arrested In Connection With Robberies

August 22, 2018 | 21 Comments

Over the past 24 hours six people have been arrested in connection with the recent spate of robberies, and the police have also recovered stolen property that they believe was taken in those robberies.

This was announced by Police Commissioner Stephen Corbishley at a press conference this afternoon, with Commissioner Corbishley also noting that the investigation will progress, and they will seek to bring those responsible to justice.

This follows after a number of incidents this month, including at least five reported chain snatching incidents, an attempted bag snatching, an attempted robbery of a female visitor, and the robbery of a man outside of his job.

Video of the police press conference:

Police Commissioner Stephen Corbishley said, “I am pleased to report to you that in the past 24 hours six, that’s six persons, have been arrested and are now in the custody of the Bermuda Police Service.

“We believe that they are involved in the robberies that I touched upon yesterday, particularly the one at Somerset Bridge and also the one at Frog Lane.

“We’ve also recovered stolen property that we believe was taken in those robberies and also a stolen motorcycle.

“The investigation will progress over the next 24 hours where we will seek the opportunity to identify and secure evidence, and where possible, bring those responsible to justice.

“I am extremely grateful to the assistance and attention of the local community and also the media for reporting on this matter. I think is a excellent example of how the police should be working, bringing together intelligence and the assets that we have and the information that members of the public can present to us.”

        Right hands have been cut off at the wrist as punishment for theft in Sharia-controlled areas of Nigeria and in Saudi Arabia. Repeat offenders in the latter country can lose both hands, and legs are sometimes taken for other offenses.

    Well done Mr Corbishley and well done to the BPS and a huge thank you to every one of you. Fully agree with Y-Gurl. Lets get them locked up for minimum 12 months.

    If they are repeat offenders longer sentance, curfew them on release. Get them paying back by cleaning roads or overgrown footpaths. They owe the tax payer now.
