    They couldn’t put in road block’s before the car got past the causeway/ bridge? Surely before it got to Warwick? SIGH

  2. sage says:

    Why didn’t they call the Southside station to block the only way out of St. Georges before approaching the car? One car on the bridge and one out of sight before the bridge to trap this joker when he rolled into the roadblock.

    So, if I am reading this article correctly, the suspect stole a car, drove around the island whilst being chased by police, had time for a nap, and then simply ran away? That is some fine detective work. Scooby Doo and Shaggy would be proud. At least they found the car, I guess.

  4. Boston Whaler Owner says:

    begs the question,they couldn’t find a vehicle to block of the Causeway to prevent further chase?
    I can see serious questions being asked by senior officers about this incident.

  5. James says:

    Couldn’t stop a car from St Georges to Warwick? Pathetic.

    So for those who get on here and call the efforts of the police pathetic, you are pathetic yourselves! Stealing cars is a new phenomenon here and if it continues, you can be sure a new protocol will be implemented. To arrange a road block in advance of approaching a stolen vehicle is not so friggin easy! What about other drivers on the roads? What about people who could be hurt by a stolen car chase? If car theft is on the rise, the police will need to have a solid plan in place. Maybe they didn’t know car was stolen till the guy took off in the car. I’m sure that will be the situation encountered as well. Will require another approach. The police have been cut back and budget reduced. Their jobs are huge and they need our support on all fronts they face new and old.
