Police: Don't buy stolen goodsPublished on Sunday, June 28, 2009Email To Friend Print VersionMarlon BoddenHead of CID, Superintendent The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) is urging all residents to call Crime Stoppers if they suspect someone is in possession of stolen goods.

Over the last few weeks a number of laptops and other electronic items such as televisions and digital cameras have been stolen from residential and commercial properties during burglaries.

"If you are offered a laptop or other item for sale which seems to be an especially good deal or is missing parts such as chargers or instruction manuals an alarm bell should start ringing," said Head of CID, Superintendent Marlon Bodden.

"It could be that the item is stolen.

If you buy it you will be handling stolen goods, which is an arrestable offence.

If, on the other hand, you report it to Crime Stoppers and your information leads to the recovery of goods or an arrest â€" you could be entitled to up to $1,000." Crime Stoppers Chairman Stuart Bostock said that the scheme is a great way for people to pass on information while remaining anonymous.

"All calls to Crime Stoppers are answered overseas and you do not have to give your name," Mr Bostock said.

"Once you have passed on your information you are given a unique reference number and you can call back at any time for an update on the progress that has been made with your information.

If an arrest has been made, or if property, drugs or firearms have been recovered you could receive up to $1,000 â€" which could buy you a brand new laptop!" Crime Stoppers can be reached on 800-8477 (TIPS) or residents can submit tips anonymously online at www.crimestoppers.ky.

Tackling burglary remains a priority for the RCIPS and officers will continue to identify those responsible and bring them to justice before the court, said an RCIPS press release.

Residents are also asked to play their part in cutting crime by ensuring items are as secure as they can be.

Valuables should not be left on display or in vehicles and everyone should note the serial number and take photographs of the item to help police identify them should they be stolen.

Owners of laptops and cell phones should also make full use of security measures such as passwords to help protect them should they be stolen.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS).

All persons calling Crime Stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1,000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
