(CNS): Police are urging car owners not to leave valuables visible in their vehicles after they received seven reports of thieves targetting parked cars overnight on Saturday-Sunday at two separate locations while the owners attended events nearby. Four of the reports involved vehicles parked on Pedro Castle Road in Bodden Town, and the other three involved cars parked off Lawrence Boulevard, George Town. The rear windows of the vehicles were smashed and in some cases cash or personal items were taken. These break-ins are currently under investigation.

    Since the RCIP are aware. . why aren’t they patrolling at events….common sense is not common….Be proactive and not reactive, especially when you offer little to no assistance after the damage is done.

    Leave car un-locked, so the crim’s can see the door lock raised, just slightly open front windows ( note: buy rain guards ) then leave about $20 in notes in the centre console for them to take . Will save you the cost of jimmied locks and broken glass.

    I’ve watched as one group rides around where cars are parked on bicycles looking in the windows and then tells a second team is told which cars to target!

    They don’t even need to be visible. One time I had someone swipe the side view mirror. That’s all he took but if you have a Honda you really gotta be careful. Friend of mine had someone crowbar his hood and took a bunch of parts from his engine bay cutting hoses and wires to get them out…
