Male biker snatching jewellery from riders

Police are investigating a series of incidents in which a man on a motorcycle reportedly snatched jewellery from other riders.

A police spokesman said that over the past week, they have received four robbery reports, all involving a male suspect on a motorcycle tearing chains from other motorists.

“These crimes were committed during various times of the day in the Paget, Pembroke and Devonshire area, and a white motorcycle was used by the suspect,” the spokesman said.

“The Bermuda Police Service would like to advise the public especially those on cycles to conceal items of jewellery and to be vigilant when travelling on the roads. Any suspicious behaviour should be reported to police and where possible, vehicle plate and description details should be noted.”

The spokesman urged anyone with information about these robberies to call the Criminal Investigation Unit on 295-0011 or the confidential Crime Stoppers Hotline on 800-8477.
