What is being described as bold daytime theft, has been reported at the Multipurpose Sports Complex. In fact, Director of the BVI Recreation Trust, Stephen Payne told BVI Platinum News that this is not the first time that the public facility has been targeted.

However, it is the most recent theft of a water tank that has prompted the Director to publicly lament the situation.

He announced that in broad day, a number of men used a pickup truck to steal a 1000-gallon water tank from the centre.

The tank was installed while the Multipurpose Complex was being used as a shelter during the 2017 hurricane season. Payne explained that the tank was hooked up to ensure continuous water supply in the time when water flow was not reliable.

The Director of the BVI Recreation Trust further explained that only recently the tank was disconnected and placed at the side of the building, awaiting relocation. Therefore, he opined that when the workers observed the men moving the tank, it was assumed that the men were acting with instructions.

In noting other theft cases, Payne said that construction blocks were also stolen at the complex.

He said that a number of blocks were purchased for use of keeping the surface down during the resurfacing process. However, he said that persons boldly entered the area and stole the said blocks.

“These are not night time thefts; that is show how bold people have become,” Payne told BVI Platinum News.
