Residents of Beausejour Phase Two, Gros Islet, are on alert after reports of vehicle thefts and robberies, it has been reported.
On Tuesday night one vehicle was stolen and an attempt was made to steal another.
According to Jim Joseph, President of the Beausejour Community Group, the first vehicle was stolen in Ignatius Cadet Drive.
The vehicle, which belonged to Agatha Pierre has since been recovered.
The silver Diahatsu Sirion 1998 model is reported to have been stolen from her garage.
A second attempt was made on a vehicle at Garey Mathurin Drive, Joseph said in an email to residents of the community.
“The persons broke the ignition switch and were going away with the vehicle but it stalled in the process. So this would have been two vehicles for the night,” he stated.
“Last week a resident brought to my attention the fact that some robberies had taken place in the adjacent community of Caye Mange and the importance of alerting members of this community to be vigilant,” the email stated.
“This serves to highlight the importance of the neighborhood watch and the revitalization of the community group,” it observed.
Joseph wrote that the group will be holding an emergency meeting this weekend to discuss security and other plans.
“We are looking for new volunteers to be part of the group and to pump some new life into the group,” he observed.
“This is our community. Together we must fight for it, work for it and ensure that we protect, sustain and nourish what we have, ”Joseph declared.
