A similar vehicle to the Gold KIA Sportage that was stolen

(CNS) UPDATED: Police have now confirmed that patrols and periodic checks are being increased in the Spotts area after it appears the beach is being targeted by thieves. A gold 2018 KIA Sportage, registration number 181-756, was stolen from the parking lot at Spotts Beach on Monday, just days after a number of valuable items belonging to tourists were stolen from a car in the same place.

In this case, police said the car, which was being used by visitors to the island, went missing between 2:00pm and 4:00pm on 3 February from the popular beach area just off Shamrock Road. Meanwhile a bag containing personal belongings, electronics and documents was also stolen from the beach that belonged to the tourists.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the stolen car is asked to contact the George Town Police Station at 949-4222 or call 911. Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777, or website.

    Peeps. It does not matter who or where these thieves come from. Once the seed of dishonesty has been planted in them. All that is left pretty much, is the opportunity for them to commit the act. Work permit holders and Caymanians alike purchase lunch from nearby establishments, then move to partake of it somewhere. Be it Spotts beach or other areas. Just look around and tell me how much green places Cayman Islands have where people could go to relax and eat. So if a person is sitting in their car having lunch and they see an opportunity – after having had the seed of criminality planted in them as mentioned. They will act accordingly. If no seed of criminality planted then it’s highly unlikely that a criminal act will occur. Thankfully there’s still a lot of honest and hardworking work permit holders and Caymanians on this Island who go to great lengths to protect our Island.

      Any idea to catch these baddies is a good thing. But not to be that critical of the police- Reassuring the public is one thing but I not so sure it’s a good idea to advertise that a direct focus will be in the area. Preventative measures should have already been in place. The strategy now is to catch them. Not to run them away by telling them you’re going to be there so don’t come back.

      10:25….That’s a pretty broad and prejudice statement to make! Joke or not. Whilst I don’t condone any crime and I hope that the culprits are caught and serve their time I cannot help to assume that you must be from one of those countries? Do me a favour and read the news of where you come from and compare it to ours. Also there are many people from those mentioned places that are here and committed crimes from petty to GBH to extreme white collar crimes……so please note that this is a “pot calling the kettle black” situation. Ignorance is blinding.

    “How about we just enforce our immigration and maintenance laws..”
    You are sadly deluding yourself if you think the people here on work permits are the ones committing most of the crime on our island.
    Until Cayman starts to take responsibility for our own homegrown problems, and faces up to the causes behind them (the self-serving crooks and incompetents continually voted into government), nothing is going to improve here for any of us.

    Looks like I’m not bringing my family there anymore. Maybe it’s time for cops to start patrolling. I never see them out.

    Just wait until the crooks realize it’s not a Honda!

      We already have them. They just don’t work. I got nailed by a a hit and run driver directly in front of one of the CCTV cameras. They never caught the guy because the stupid things have never worked since they were installed.

    How long is it going to take CIG to install CCTV cameras there?

    Before Government “compulsorily” purchased for the second time, Spotts was a quiet pleasure. The increase in parking has brought more cars and more cover for these wretched criminals. It will only get worse. Thanks Kurt!

      How about we just enforce our immigration and maintenance laws. Cheaper and better for all.

        You are assuming these crooks arent Caymanian? Allot of the thieves on this island are Caymanians born and bred.

          Sad to say but yes, that is true. It sure as heck isn’t employed people!

          Yes, and many are not “born and bred.”

          Too many are the result of absent foreign baby daddies who do not meet their obligations. Our court system and law enforcement agencies do not force them to. Many are children of foreign nationals who are not automatically Caymanian. Many are Caymanians, but are ostracized from the workplace and opportunity by an ineffective and haphazardly enforced immigration regime. Many are addicts who are denied early treatment and whose families do not meet their responsibilities to them. So yes, enforcing the Maintenance and Immigration Laws would be of considerable assistance in reducing crime.
