    Hope these dumb criminals are caught before they try something just as dumb AGAIN!

    • hair says:

      SMH, one was caught in 30mins of this action. Woo hoo

      • Sad says:

        SMH! So there’s memes going around about the girl who they claim did it but the cops need help figuring out who did it?

        With all the social media going around they need to change the laws to use these sorts of things as evidence. I mean the whole meme tells you who and provides a picture? They even make it a joke. This is circulating too so I’m sure this has had to cross at least one cops WhatsApp. Who’s the joke really on? Such a sad situation but it looks like the ganstas are one step ahead. They commit a crime post of the suspect and still BDA Police still need help. These young ones know just what they’re doing.

    Welcome to Onion Juice’s new Bermuda. Get what you vote for.

  5. Pay me says:

    This happens in London alot, Bermudians learning their trade and coming back home for employment.

  6. Blind Pews says:

    Why oh why do we get a full description of their clothing from head to literally toe (Which has all been discarded by now), but not their damn color??? Their hands, wrists or necks must have been exposed. What did their accents sound like? It’s because of this PC crap that this will give them more time. Were they white? black? green?
    Seriously?

    • andre says:

      Covered from head to toe means that!

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      Was thinking the same thing. The BPS are great at making themselves look foolish. What is going on? Don’t want to hurt tender feelings?

    • Lambertini says:

      I don’t think they were ‘Green’…

  7. Concerned Bermudian says:

    Yet again no mention of skin color when providing descriptions.
