Police warning over vehicle security

Police reminded the public to be mindful of vehicle security after six cars were reported stolen in less than three months.

The Bermuda Police Service said that from March 1 to May 22, reports were received of cars taken from six different homes.

They added: “In each case, the vehicle was left parked with the keys inside and later recovered at a different location, intact.

“While such incidents remain uncommon and are mostly preventable, this recent increase is cause for a renewed public advisory.”

The BPS reminded motorists to park their vehicles in visible, well-lit areas whenever possible, particularly in the case of cars.

Unattended vehicles should always be locked if the owner is going to be away for any length of time, especially overnight, even when the vehicle is parked on the owner’s property.

All windows and sunroofs on the vehicle should be closed and keys should be removed.

Valuables and personal items should be secured out of sight if left in the vehicle, or ideally removed altogether.

Stolen vehicles should also be reported immediately by calling 211 and as much information as possible should be provided.

Stolen vehicles can also be reported through the BPS online community reporting portal.
