ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) is receiving a number of reports of items being stolen from vehicles and vessels that are in need of repairs and are urging owners to secure items that may be prone to theft.

Evidence indicates that members of the public are using the cover of night to take parts off vehicles and boats left on roadsides and in parking lots that are unsecured with missing windows or windscreens.

Along with reports of missing side mirrors, batteries, grills, radio systems and unlocked spare tires and other parts, one victim reported that an envelope of cash was stolen from the glove compartment.

Vehicle owners are being encouraged to remove all valuables and any items that are susceptible to theft from vehicles that are left overnight especially in vulnerable places.

Persons with information into the identification of the perpetrators of these thefts are asked to contact Police via the RVIPF three-digit access number 311.
