‘Be on lookout for car robbers’

POLICE are advising the public to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings on arrival at their homes due to a trend of stealing vehicles in residential areas.

During the evening hours over the past few weeks, police said they have noticed a trend where residents on arrival at their homes have been approached and subsequently robbed of their vehicles at gunpoint.

As a result, members of the public were encouraged to get to know their neighbours and pay close attention to vehicles parked in the immediate area of their residence.

“If you’re not familiar with a vehicle, police are encouraging you not to approach your residence and to contact 911 or 919 or visit the nearest police station before driving into your yard,” police said.

Meanwhile, police on Monday successfully removed three firearms from the streets of New Providence.

According to reports, officers attached to Operation Ceasefire arrested a 32-year-old in the area of Wilson Tract after he was found with a handgun and ammunition.

In the second incident, officers acted on information and discovered a weapon in a backpack on Bible Way Corner, off Gladstone Road; however, no arrests were made in connection with the discovery.

Finally, a woman handed over to police a handgun with a large quantity of ammunition after finding it inside her home in western New Providence.

Police are actively investigating these matters and appealing to members of the public to become active participants in the fight against crime, by providing information that will assist in firearms recoveries.

The RBPF don't worth shhh when it comes to stolen cars. The thugs realize that the RBPF don't prioritize theft of cars as a crime. I had two cars stolen from me and both times I was told by the RBPF to ride around and see if I find it and if I do to call them. HOW THE F I going to ride around if the car stolen. If I was a crook, stealing cars would be my career because I know the Police don't give a shit about that. The RBPF is tell you that's an insurance situation.

This is what we get for political cronyism. Billions and billions pass through this economy yet nothing works and everything crumbling and a few favored getting dollars m as locally dropped in their pockets. You see them, a few weeks ago they was trade unionists, school teachers and taxi drivers on a regular salary now they multimillionaires having done nothing but get close to a prime minister.

30 years on the force and nobody could figure this out on a 21x7? All they could do is the same old tired "safety tips"
