Theft from Parked Cars

Fri, 2018-07-20

The Bermuda Police Service would like to advise the motoring public about a recent rise in thefts from parked cars particularly in the City of Hamilton.

It appears that individuals are gaining entry into unlocked vehicles and rummaging through looking for anything of perceived value.

In some cases thieves are removing “window rain guards” and forcing the windows down then gaining entry.

Police are asking the public to do the following to lessen your chances of becoming a victim:

1. Ensure that you leave your vehicle locked and secured at all times.

2. Never leave anything of value in your car.

3. Where possible always leave your car in a well-lit area.

4. Ensure window rain guards are secured in your vehicle.

5. Report an suspicious activity to police
