Car Battery Thief Caught In The Act

- Advertisement -

At first glance, people might have concluded that he was a mechanic trying to fix a problem that a parked vehicle had developed.

But a social media post indicated that he was a thief who managed to get under the vehicle’s bonnet and remove the car battery.

A viral 30-second video on social media shows the young man, his trousers hanging way past his waist, working feverishly to get the battery out of the car.

He glances around furtively as he takes out the battery, closes the vehicle hood, grabs a nearby bag, and appears to put the stolen item inside before making off.

“This individual broke into this car to steal the battery in the car park above the government ministries today, Friday, February 3, 2023,” media worker Cameron Brown wrote on social media.

Brown said the car belongs to his son’s mother, but his son drives it.

He indicated that the battery theft was discovered at about 4:45 pm.

“He left my son stranded in the carpark as the sun was setting. Luckily he had an uncle nearby and I called a friend to check on him until his mon, who was closer than I was, bought a battery and got him on his way,” Brown explained.

“When justice is served, I hope his mother holds back her tears,” he declared regarding the young man who took the car battery.

  2. That thief doesn’t look all that emaciated, malnourished, nor hungry! In fact, he seems to have a lot of muscles (or fat?) that suggests there is enough energy within him that can be put to useful service to the society! I say, two years hard labour when he is caught! Then again, our society is so corrupt, hardly anything will come of it. For one thing, those who know who he is will not go to the authorities; and even if he is identified by the Police and caught, the justice system is so toothless, he will walk free the next day with a little slap on the wrist! Bring back Magistrate Velon John, Saint Lucia!

  3. And there is a lawyer that will defend him to prove that he is “not” guilty. #systemisshate.. I say release the full video and his pic….let society react to him.#debanwat


    These are just are words that comes to mind when describing the criminals in St Lucia.

  5. And must I say he has brand shoes and earrings and hair neatly groomed…doesn’t fit the description of a theif…good for nothing young men who are capable of doing something but are bent on doing NOTHING…Quick fix to their wants… we can’t blame anyone but these people are continuously engage in these activities and the ones who encourage these activities ..the buyers..shameful

  6. @lynnnnnn, and what exactly is the description of a thief?maybe when i come from work soiled and ruffled that makes me a thief.

  7. this is the same area where not to long ago police were issuing tickets to people parked on the sides of the road where there is NO no parking signs to indicate you should not park there and they will say these people are causing congestion but they not seeing their own damn vehicles that park along the whole left lane on bridge street causing any congestion but these same police were no where to be found on that very same hill to foil that robbery.

  8. @stomp, lol, but the girl that was working bank of saint lucia that stole the hundreds of thousands of dollars was dressing nice to come to work as well.
