Blue Suzuki Sidekick, similar to the one stolen

(CNS): While Hondas have proved to be a firm favourite among local car thieves, this weekend the auto bandits turned their attention to a Suzuki Sidekick, which they stole from Main Street in George Town between 8am on Wednesday, 6 December, and 7:30am Friday 8 December. The blue car, registration 166 484, was reported missing on Friday evening. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of this vehicle is asked to call George Town Police Station at 949-4222.

    They did the owner a favour. I once went to a parts store and asked if they had a battery for a sidekick, the reply was yes, that seems like a fair swap.

    If a common criminal could have any car for free, why would they take a piece of underpowered rust like that. Moron. It’s no wonder this dazzling thinker had to turn to a life of crime.

    I suspect a few of our MLAs believe that a certain level crime is good, as it provides otherwise unemployable people with an income. Also, the courts are stretched and the prison is full, so why arrest more criminals? It’s the same type of thinking that says, ‘if I toss my garbage onto the roadside, then I’m doing the country a favour by creating jobs for the unskilled’. (No, this is not a joke. I’ve heard this opinion expressed twice.)

    Perhaps one our MLA’s should review the current law for car theft and make recommendations for substancial jail time for car theft and or selling stolen car parts. I suspect the current law is very outdated and light on penalties.

    Dealing in stolen property – phones, electronics, jewellery, car parts – is very big and very profitable business in Cayman run by well organized criminals. We need to make it easier to prosecute and therefore less profitable. The criminals in Cayman are connected to other highly organized criminals in Jamaica, Central America, the US and even Europe. The people dealing in stolen goods in GT and Bodden Town and elsewhere are known to the police but our MLAs have tied the hands of the police and prosecutors behind their backs. We need to update our 100 year old laws as well as our policing methods in order to deal with it. At the moment police and prosecutors pay very little attention to dealing in stolen property as our laws make it very difficult to prosecute. Our outdated law was written at a time when everybody knew everybody and knew everybody’s property. It requires the police and prosecutors to prove that people caught with stolen property knew that it was stolen – which is almost impossible. We need to make possession of stolen property without a lawful excuse a criminal offence punishable by at least 5 years in prison.

      Anonymous 11:38 am , I completely agree with your comment on the subject of outdated Laws and the incompetence of the Government not seeing and addressing the issues .
      I will say it again that I think that the time has come that the people have to tell the Government that this HAS to be done NOW .

      We have just been informed of CPA giving permission to Dart to move 2 public beach access and put them together and make one 12ft public access. How can this be LEGAL ?

    Good luck to any victims of stolen property in the Cayman Islands – recovered or not. The ineptitude doesn’t stop with the RCIPS CID, it continues to the next level, where many of Cayman’s notorious thieves are magically and unilaterally “forgiven” by the DPP. Ask me how I know.

    Dear RCIP,

    its going to continue if you dont pull your socks up!! the reason they are getting out of control with this car theft is because the lack of police presence. Police will harass you for some damn tint but cannot do their job in finding car thieves? RCIPs, get your shit together!

    They just needed some Sidekicks parts for export , the biggest export business in the Cayman Island.
    The Government should clamp down on these car thieves because I believe that they will soon be killing you for your car .
