    TI should start by cleaning up their car park and removing all the dumped cars with out a license . Maybe they can get the scrap guys to pick them up for free. That place is really going down hill.

    That hotel will continue to drag down SMB so long as it stays in business the way it is. The crime wave along the southern part of SMB in the last two years has been shocking.

    As a former resident of TI and someone who knows the inside of the office very well this has to be a joke.

    TI has 'security' officers on site 24/7 plus CCTV and you'd need a small crane to lift the main safe out. If I remember rightly the CCTV feeds to a monitoring unit in the USA.  

    RCIPS I'll bet the culprit(s) are long gone by now, probably took the first flight out.

    And as for suspicious persons and vehicles on the site in the early hours of the morning – expect a very long list, the parking lot under my room had comings and goings 24/7.

    I hate to say this but this seems to again be a case where the police need to release more information. When I think of "suspicous activity" in relation to a burglary its different from what I imagine it woul be to 'steal a safe'. Without full information the public will not be able to be as helpful as possible.

      Hurrah for CCTV cameras.  At that time of the morning, it should be EASY to capture all the plate numbers and car descriptions.

      So Govt, you asked for $$$ and got it, now Mr. Eric Bush, show us how it is used!

    Is there no way to bolt a safe down from the inside  so it cannot simply be picked up and carried out the door?

    One would think business would do night deposits so there is not much cash in the

    safe.  Guess that would involve having security guards along when the deposit is made.

    Wonder who knew there was a substantial amount of cash in safe??

    Although in this climate of crime maybe it wouldn't have made any difference!!

    Sooooo lemme get this straight… Safe stolen between 4 and 5 AM – reported to police at 6 AM.

    Gonna go out on a limb and say NOBODY witnessed this great heist due to the timeline?!

    A SAFE STOLEN. The robbers brought a dolly with them to move it or was it one of those combination safes all 8 years old have for their allowance?

    Gimme a break.
