Six Cars Recently Reported Stolen, All Recovered With Keys Inside

During 1st March 2024 until 22nd May 2024, the Bermuda Police Service (BPS) received six reports of six different cars being stolen from outside six separate homes.

In each case, the vehicle was left parked with the keys inside and later recovered at a different location, intact.

While such incidents remain uncommon and are mostly preventable, this recent increase is cause for a renewed public advisory.

As a result, residents are once again urged to be vigilant about how they park and lock their cars. Some practical advice:

Park in visible, well-lit areas, if possible

Ideally, cars should be parked somewhere that is easily visible, day or night.

Always lock unattended vehicles

Make it a habit to lock your vehicle if you’re going to be away from it for any period of time – especially overnight – even if it’s just parked outside your home.

Also, all windows and the sun roof, if the vehicle has one, should be closed. And please, remember to take the keys with you.


Take valuables with you, or secure them out of sight

Any personal items left visible in an unattended parked car emboldens an opportunistic thief. Instead, take them with you, or secure them out of sight, in the trunk/boot.

Report stolen vehicles promptly


As always, members of the public are encouraged to report stolen vehicles immediately, by calling 211 – providing as much information as possible. Alternatively, stolen vehicles can be reported through the BPS online community reporting portal at
