Country Name: Dominican Republic
Location Detail: Luperon
EVENT: Theft
HAND: 2
Stolen Items: Portable Yamaha generator, many tools, provisions
SECURED: Locked
DETAILS: During the night, police stopped/apprehended a suspect carrying suspicious items in his car. They posted pictures of the items along with a photo of the suspect and his driver’s license on the Luperon Cruisers Facebook page. The items were not immediately recognised so a search was made of unoccupied yachts. A caretaker of a sailboat whose owner was away discovered that the locked yacht had been broken into and ransacked and identified the items as belonging to that boat. Charges were filed by the caretaker on the owners behalf, and the items were returned to the yacht.

Country Name: Dominican Republic
Location Detail: Luperon
EVENT: Burglary
HAND: 1
Stolen Items: Honda generator, compressor with hose, water pump and many tools
SECURED: Locked
DETAILS: Thieves broke into an unoccupied but well locked yacht thru a deck hatch, damaging the hatch. The minder/caretaker discovered the theft the next morning. A stolen dinghy had been used to transport the goods and it was recovered. A report was made to the police, coast guard, port captain, the Puerto Blanco Marina, the tourist office and on the VHF net.

CSSN NOTE: In response to the recent increase in thefts and boat burglaries, on November 14, 2019, stakeholders in Luperon met and roles/jurisdictions were clarified, including correct crime reporting procedures. To enhance the security on the water the Navy comandante from Puerto Plata reinstated a patrol boat in Luperon bay with immediate effect. Initially, provisional equipment will be used, but a bigger patrol boat in association with a small patrol boat are expected. Locally, the Navy (call name: Richard) can be reached on VHF channel 68 24/7 in case of emergency. The National Police indicated that a 911-call will activate the patrols around the bay at all times.    Follow Us
