Nassau, Bahamas — Bahamas Press is reporting Immigration Officers walked off the job early this morning following what they term, a lack of action by management at the Hawkins Hill office to curb many car thefts in the area.
A BP agent at the office reported, “Every day a car is stolen at this department head office. For the past months at least 17 cars have been stolen from the parking lot. Officers vehicle were stole and management refuses to hire a security to guard for area. We have a problem and the police nor the director has a solution to it and see will protest until something happens.”
Car thefts goes unreported in the Bahamas and the problem appears to be on the rise.
One source in the area tells us, “It is possible many of these stolen vehicles are being shipped for sale to the family islands. No system is in place on the island to track serial numbers on stolen vehicles and therefore someone’s lost is another man’s gain.”
The workers returned to work following lunch. We are told management is now making plans to assign a security team to watch vehicles around the property.
