Police Advisory: ‘Chain Snatching’ Incidents

May 11, 2018

Following two chain snatching incidents being reported to police in the last week, the police advised that the “public consider not having their expensive jewellery on display in public and remain vigilant for any unknown or suspicious individuals approaching them.”

A police spokesperson said, “In the last week, two incidents of ‘chain snatching’ have been reported to police – with one of those incidents resulting in a man sustaining non-life threatening injuries.

“In both instances the suspects and victims were men.

“As a result of these latest incidents it is once again strongly recommended that members of the public consider not having their expensive jewellery on display in public and remain vigilant for any unknown or suspicious individuals approaching them.

“Anyone with any information regarding similar suspicious activity is encouraged to report it to the Criminal Investigation Department on 247-1744.”

    Becoming more and more backward, crime-ridden and third world isn’t it.

    Don’t expect the government to do anything at all about it, other than prayer vigils.

    How weak of mind body and spirit you must be to take jewelry from someone and feel good about it afterward.I would feel embarrassed and ashamed wearing something people know I stole.How do you feel when you bump into your victim with their $hit around your neck.You gutless wonders have no right to be called men…ffs

  3. Ty says:

    You may as well shut down all of the jewelry stores if you are telling people that you can’t wear you OWN jewelry outside. I feel a few azz-whoopins coming up. Same as last year with tourists in Dockyard.

    I’m whoopin azz. Who buys jewelry to keep it locked in a safe.

    I will gladly do time for SERIOUSLY cutting someone azz who steals my stuff.

  4. Jus' Wonderin' says:

    Here’s my response: IF YOU SNATCH MY CHAIN RIP! I will not feel hard done by either tryna take my hard earned money lmfao…I WISH THEY WOULD!

  5. puzzled says:

    No cash to buy drugs?
    Snatch some gold and redeem it on the black market.

    The cops know who they are .

  7. Bermy greens says:

    Instead of the police advising the public not to wear your expensive jewelry. They should be advising these kids and their parents of the azz whooping they gonna get from the public once someone catches them . Time to take matters in our own hands bermuda. Gov and police don’t do poo. Parents come on open your eyes if ya son is walking around with gold nuggets around their necks and u know u haven’t bought that much gold for your son then he prob one of the kids robbing chains . Stop turning blind eyes to your kids and cut their azzes cause when someone in the public gets their hands on them we bermudians won’t be feeling sorry . Come steal my chain !

    Well when our gomint can’t create any new jobs what do we expect nothing has changed for us at the bottom but it is fun watching them give out a few photo op scholarships on TV smh PS good luck chasing bitcoins

  10. Don k says:

    Let us all be vigilant…if we see this happen…let’s get involved…I know what I will do.
    Citizen’s arrest…all the while shouting don’t struggle because struggling increases force needed to subdue the perpetrator.
    So hold still mate…or
    …you will be happy to see a policeman…

    Smart metres don’t just communicate with remote device…they communicate smart metering to smart metering house to house…anything or anyone in that path…children playing on the yard …are being microwaved.

  12. Garf says:

    Sad you cannot wear your jewelry out in public thanks to a few immature, lawless individuals.

  13. JAOS says:

    Chain snatching has nothing to do with political parties or unemployment.

  14. Oh,I see now says:

    As much as we would like to cut their &ss ,to use excessive force is against the law and can land you in prison.It is best to get the law involved instead of being in a cell next to them.Believe me nothing compares to hindsight what the hell was I thinking next day remorse.

    • sage says:

      When some punk commits ‘strongarm’ robbery like that, what level of violent reaction is reasonable? l’d take my chances since they hand out suspended sentences for wife beating or tossing your baby out the window.

  15. Sara says:

    While this is no laughing matter, do people still wear gold chains? I did in the 1990s
