Pointless Call to Report Burglaries

THE crime statistics must be very skewed because every time I hear of a burglary I also am shocked that no one ever reports it.

They all say the same thing “what’s the point?”

Last week I heard of someone who parked her car in the driveway of friends in Finistere Island Retreat. It was broken in to and everything of value stolen.

This is a very quiet neighbourhood so it was surprising except that one of the residents lets out their house to groups who have noisy parties.

One of those occurred on a Saturday night so who knows what miscreants turn up at parties.

Someone else I know saw two youngsters stealing her laptop from her business and attempting to steal a bike from next door’s restaurant.

They got away with the laptop but did she report it? No.

As she said, there is no point.
