Car owners warned: Secure your vehicles

By CECILY ASSON Friday, March 2 2012

In what is being described as a “slight increase” in thefts of B-12, B-13 and B-14 Nissan Sunny motorcars in the southern division, a senior police officer yesterday pleaded with owners to properly secure their vehicles by installing anti-theft devices.

The officer also asked that owners replace the locks to the doors of their vehicle and the key slots to the ignition once it becomes worn. Up to yesterday, officers of the Southern Division were still searching for the car thieves who within the space of about five hours on Tuesday, stole four vehicles, two of which police reported were parked in the car park of the San Fernando General Hospital.

In the first incident, police reported at about 7.45 am, a 44 year old Siparia school teacher parked and secured her white B-13 Nissan Sunny at Lady Hailes Avenue, San Fernando in the vicinity of the WASA facility. According to a police report, the teacher returned a few hours later and discovered the vehicle valued at $37,000 missing.

And at about 9.30 am, while a party of officers were investigating the first report, they were informed that a 22-year-old clerk of Tarouba Road, Marabella parked and secured her white B- 12 Nissan Sunny at the San Fernando General Hospital (SFGH) Car Park and went away. She returned at 2:45pm and the vehicle was not there.

The car is valued at $25,000. The third victim was a 46-year-old man who told police at about 10.00 am he parked his blue Nissan Bluebird Wagon valued at $15,000 along Irving Street, San Fernando and returned at 10.30 am and discovered the vehicle missing. A 35-year-old man also parked his grey B 12 Nissan Sunny motorcar at the hospital car park only to return at 4.00 pm to find the vehicle valued at $28,000 missing.

Up to yesterday police said none of the cars have been recovered.

Meanwhile police said they believe they made “some headway” into smashing a car theft ring with the recovery of five stolen vehicles and the arrest of two suspects. The men, aged 49 and 25 from Ste Madeleine and Point Fortin were arrested during a police exercise which began at about 2 am on Wednesday, and was co-ordinated by ASP Zamsheed Mohammed and included Sgts Smith, Manwarren, Cpl Smith and PCs Burke, Mendoza and Mohammed.

The senior officer said, “We believe the thieves are operating in gangs across San Fernando and Marabella. We are trying to nab those persons and recover those cars. In the meantime we ask owners especially of B-12s, B-13s B-14,s be very careful and properly secure their vehicles.
