Car thief caught on camera

(CNS): The owner of a stolen Honda is hoping someone can help track down her car after it was brazenly taken in broad daylight from outside her front door by a car thief, who was caught on camera wearing a light t-shirt and camouflage pants. The white 1998 Honda CRV, registration # 142 130, was stolen Tuesday morning around 6:55 from Omega Drive in Prospect, George Town.

The thief is seen on camera passing the parked car, but he quickly turns back and in a matter of seconds has the door open and is driving away.

Any anyone with information is asked to call the police at the George Town Police Station on 949-4222 or contact Gina Matthews via Facebook.

See two videos below. Better versions will be posted tomorrow.

    I might be wrong………
    I watched it twice, sure as heck looks like one on those “new” plates.
    Aren’t they suppose to have “GPS”?
    Now that fiasco to me requires a investigation.

    It is time to have anti thief steering bars which it is impossible to drive the car away without turning at the corners. Come on people let help the police who it is. Call on TIPS line, 949 7777 or 800 8477.

    This is wrong. I saw two videos. One of a guy walking and another of a car driving away. I did not see that guy get into that car. I know nothing about the area. So that could be a public area where people may walk. So why do we have a video with this guy up? Just wrong. I hate that our country is making these very dangerous leaps of judgments. CNS I hold you up high. I understand the passion. However, unless you got a video of that man getting into that vehicle, then I would take it down. Please do not go that road too.

    CNS: I do know the area. It’s a very small, very out of the way cul-de-sac, privately owned. There is no need to be there unless you live there or are visiting someone who lives there. The second video shows what happened immediately after the first.

    I know someone whose car got stolen report it to the authority and never received update from them. Until someone saw the car parked on a private resident road, called the owner and retrieved the car with mashed up bumper. I’m sure it’s the same person/persons that does this stuff over and over again.

    This is true. A friend of mine had a tracker in a boat engine which was stolen, told the police exactly where it was, met them there and pointed it out in the back of a truck in the persons front yard, has CCTV of the truck leaving the scene after stealing it and to this day the person never got arrested or spent one minute in jail because they apparently couldn’t prove they were the person driving the car.

      I know what you’re talking about, they seem to have a problem charging people with theft. However, I believe there is a better deterrent that they can deploy. I am not a lawyer so I will need some help here, but I believe there is a law that entitles them to seize the truck as that was used in the commission of a crime. So whenever they catch someone with stolen goods in a vehicle or drugs in a boat they need to go before the courts to have the vehicle/boat handed over to government and immediately put up for auction.

    Strangely, the justice system in the Cayman Islands feels their job is complete and case closed once stolen goods are reunited with their rightful owners, including in instances of grand larceny. The thrives, if they have well-positioned friends, are free to go do it to again to someone else.

We have created a new system to help us address questions we receive from the public for the press briefings. We are getting hundreds every day and it’s impossible to read and deal with them while the PB is in process as there are a lot of moving parts to being able to do the Zoom meeting, take notes and respond to their info in real time.

So we are asking people to send their questions each day BEFORE NOON to: covid-questions@caymannewsservice.com

This will give us a chance to read, sort and consolidate the questions so that we get to the issues that people are most concerned about.

Thanks for your help. In the meantime the ones you have sent will be sorted and collated.
