Cops catch thief with stolen booty

| 22/06/2011

(CNS): A man who was helping himself to other people’s property in cars parked at condos off Crewe Road in George Town has been arrested after police caught him leaving the scene of the crime with his ill-gotten gains. Officers from the RCIPS arrested the 33-year-old man on suspicion of theft from motor vehicles following a spate of incidents overnight and have recovered a significant amount of property. Police said that just before 4:00am this morning (Wednesday 22 June) uniformed officers from George Town Police Station received a report of a suspicious male in the area of Lakeland Villas. The man had been seen entering and removing property from parked vehicles. 

While the officers were responding they were advised the male had been seen moving from one vehicle and was cycling away. The member of the public calling in the report was able to provide officers with a description of the male suspect. As officers arrived they saw the suspect and arrested him on suspicion of theft and going equipped to steal.

The RCIPS said they would like to remind motorists not to leave valuables on display in their vehicles

    They won't name them becuase when they get put in jail for a few days and let out rob you again you can't get mad that the same person keeps robbing you everytime. That's exactly what happened in my case. They kept arresting the guy and kept letting him go. Went on for two years until I move away to another neighborhood. I did find out later it was the same guy everytime. He was hitting all the cars on our street with frequency. He graduate to robbing our houses as well. Many of the criminals like doing their short stints in Jail. A little Medical…a little Dental a bit of a break. 3 square a days for a few weeks them let back out to go back to work.

    Why can't the suspects be named?

    Name 'em and Shame 'em.

      Because they're just that – suspects, they are not guilty until proven so in a court of law.

      A fairly fundamental principal that should be unpheld.

      There'll be time for shame if and when they are convicted.
