    Just as an added precaution, please don’t post your whereabouts or intended whereabouts on social networks because methinks the tiefs are internet savvy and probably used the fact the owners were away to hatch the scheme!

    Don’t kid yourselves, these three will likely be elected representatives for the District of West Bay come 2021

    er, excuse me… how exactly did they manage to get away with two ‘brand new cars’? these cars, certainly the ‘Z’ surely are equipped with alarms and immobilisers and don’t they bothhave the ‘rolling code’ transducer keys (and no they can’t be scanned, the ‘base’ unit changes the code from one of 6 billion every time they are activated) ?

    Good job by thecops for sure… but there’s more to this one…..

    Sounds like an inside job to me…..

      I was thinking the same thing, how on Earth did they manage to steal two New Brand Nissan’s? I think the Police need to look in further on how they access these vehicles and yes a in inside Job songs more like what happen here, because a thief may access them but won’t be going any where at all these cars are design to disengage whenever broken into so I’m very puzzle to how they end up in West Bay.

    After smoking ganja and playing Grand Theft Auto for six months:

    "hey Clarence..let’s steal two unique in-your-face cars and hide them…. in West Bay!!"

    "yeah!!!"

    "what will we do with them???"

    "we can sell the wiper blades!!!"

    "yeah!!! no one will be able to trace them!!!"

    FLASH within 48 hours they were caught.

    but not down. no sir

    they had already decided.. to move their entire operation…. to Little Cayman.

    within 10 minutes they were caught.

    "high end car theft"?  really?

    Look, I agree that the "Z" is a pretty sweet ride…. and my sister-in-law loves her Murano, but "high-end"?   Isn’t that a bit of hyperbole?

      Not when the perpertrators’ idea of sweet ride is a 1991 Civic in bleached green.

    and exactly where did these geniuses expect to hide these cars?

    One for the Darwin awards; on this small island where do you go with two brand new stolen vehicles? Apparently West Bay…

    What are the YOUTH of these Islands thinking about. Are these three young males Caymanians or non-Caymanians?

    If I were the Judge that they will face they will have a very long time to serve in A Prison and not the HOTEL that’s up at Nortward.

    Youth remember you all are the FUTURE of these Islands.
