Police call on owners to reclaim stolen vehicles or risk them being destroyed
Scores of stolen vehicles recovered by police will be destroyed unless claimed by their owners.
The Bermuda Police Service has published a list of six cars and 60 cycles currently in the police impound in Prospect.
A spokesman said: “Our priority is to return these vehicles to their rightful owners. As a result, members of the public are encouraged to review the list of registration numbers in the Official Gazette notice on the Government of Bermuda’s website, to identify any vehicle that may belong to them.”
This list of uncollected vehicles includes auxiliary cycles, motorcycles, and cars that came into police possession after a collision, or seized for safe keeping during the investigation process.
The spokesman added: “However, once the investigation has concluded, some owners neglect to either claim their vehicle, or give the BPS written permission to dispose of it.”
Registered owners of these vehicles may reclaim them by contacting the police impound office on 247 1751 during working hours.
Any vehicle not claimed within 21 days will be disposed of, in accordance with the Police Property Act, 1921.
