Sergeant Calvin Amory of the Traffic Department, in speaking with MiyVue.com, indicated that on Friday, 6th May, 2011, Stacy Williams of Bird Rock reported that her car was stolen.
He informed that according to William’s report, she arrived at her residence in her motor car P2315 – a white Nissan Sunny – sometime after 10:00 that evening and, with the key still in the ignition, she disembarked her vehicle and proceeded to open the gate to her yard. The officer further indicated that a masked individual jumped into the driver’s seat of her vehicle and drove off with it.
The Traffic Police told this media house that they did not see the vehicle until later than evening when it was involved in a police-chase and a subsequent traffic accident along the F. T. Williams Highway.
“On that same date, at about 11:30, police responded to a traffic accident on the F.T. Williams Highway in vicinity of the Shadwell roundabout. The accident involved Williams’s vehicle and motorcar R530 owned by Ken’s Rental Company in Sandy Point and driven by Lesroy Gumbs of Sandy Point. Vehicle P2315 which – was reported stolen – was travelling from New Road towards the Shadwell Roundabout while being pursued by the police and rather than keeping left at the roundabout, the driver of the stolen vehicle kept right and collided with R530 which was travelling in a westward direction.”
MiyVue.com understands that following the crash, the four occupants of the stolen vehicle evacuated it and fled the scene. However, a juvenile, was eventually caught and was taken into police custody to assist with investigations into the incident.
The vehicle, also according to police reports, was searched and three different registration plates were found along with a number of other items, which are believed to have been stolen.
Meanwhile, a vehicle which was reported missing in late April by Grand Masters’ lead singer Raymond ‘Smiley’ Browne, was found, totally destroyed by fire.

Acting on information received, the police visited a dirt road in the Conaree area – in the vicinity of the Shrimp Farm and Radio Paradise – where the completely destroyed vehicle was discovered.
