  1. Sometimes looking for the whole vehicle can be a waste of time if this is not published right away. Put on the TV, and in the news papers and radio.
    Another bad thing that is taking place on the Island, is that there are two or three "Strip Masters" who is professional in striping a car in one hour. These parts are a prize price to be sent away and sold or used. I took my car to a garage once to just have a dent repaired, it stayed there for a day. After driving it away on about the third day I noticed that all four tires and rims were changed and replaced with old ones. Luckily I took it back and heavily complained and the company had to replace four new rims and wheels. Taking apart cars for parts is a big thing on island, and it is happening at all and some of the most reputable garages. Advice, be very careful when you take your car to a garage, because your parts are being replaced with old parts, and you’re back in a week. Even got to make identifying marks on special parts of your car engine, tires, spare and you name it. This place is gone for sure.

  2. Why so many Honda CR-Vs?
    And two in S Church St, one in George Town.
    Are they easier to steal than other cars or does the thief have some sort of skeleton key that makes him target those cars out of preference.

  3. Norman it’s mostly because they are popular and parts are pretty interchangeable. They get stolen and parted out, with some parts probably going off island. I don’t think they are necessarily easier to steal, but there is a greater incentive to.

  4. I think that the police should take Ms Vargas comment with a grain of salt and set up a sting operation, and stop asking the public to solve every case for them. Which I’m not saying that if you know something you should not help the police. We have to remember that every time the insurance company has to pay off for a vehicle, the cost is passed on to the consumer in premium.

  5. Hondas are high on the list of stolen models in New Jersey as well. The parts sell like hotcakes.
    Just get a good alarm, they are worth the investment unlike the car itself which will lose value as soon as it leaves the lot so don’t expect the insurance company to pick up the full loss.

  6. I think that the government/customs could put a stop to all this, by making a law that says that when a boat leaves the the Islands it must be cleared by customs and leaves the Islands and kept on the radar for 6 hours after departure.
