Thieves break into vehicle of FLOW executive

The windows of the vehicle were smashed

A top official of FLOW Dominica, Kareem Guiste is appealing to the public for assistance in identifying two men who broke into his vehicle on Tuesday evening.

He said the vehicle was parked in front of CIS Computer Store on Old Street, Roseau when it was broken into at around 6:15 pm.

In a Facebook post, Guiste revealed that the items stolen were two bags, a black backpack branded ( C&W Buisness) and a brown leather laptop bag.

“The contents of the both bags are as follows: Mac Book Air (silver laptop), Mac Book Air charger, Samsung Note handset charger, one Microsoft Surface Pro ( purple case), three ipads, passport, chords, laptop connectors, and documents,” he stated.

Guiste describes the incident as an invasion of his privacy.

“This is an invasion of privacy and I would like to bring the perpetrators to answer to this crime and to hopefully get back my belongings,” he added.

Anyone with information concerning the incident can contact Guiste at 235-1246 or contact the police directly.

    Myself is a victim. Whilst I was at church two men broke the side glass of my car and stole my wife’s and daughter’s bags. they took four cell phones belonging to my children and two tablets, money and chains which worth over $4000. A certain security personnel saw them while searching the bags and alert the police, we got the bags empty.

    That seems to be the trend around the city of Roseau by those two men. More powerful security cameras should placed around the city in certain areas. FLOW should lead the drive.

    Don’t you know that you can’t leave ANYTHING unguarded in DA. Thieves are everywhere. You are lucky that they didn’t take your vehicle also. Good luck with the police. I never got anything back. Even if you know and tell them who took it, very likely nothing will happen.

    Kareem, you are joke. Every hillbilly knows not to leave a laptop in his vehicle. Put another way, if you wish thieves to enter your vehicle, just leave a laptop or expensive mobile phone in it.

    Kareem Guiste what you have on company laptop that’s invasion of his privacy. Well look it the cat is going to come out the bag on this one. But firstly are you appealing to the public on facebook if this is company propert hence it being an apple product why wouldnt you put a claim in for the IT departement to track the device? Carmem.. A mess

    While I myself always try to remain vigilante about my whereabouts and do not tempt thieves, no one have the rght to break into the vehicle. Granted it was an error o bad judgement. With pics it should be a quick investigation.

    Jus simply let the company’s technicians track those devices

    was this video fwd to crimestoppersdominica dot org, for assistance come to think of it i have never seen an unsolve case on that website which is why i thought the website was for. All they have is promoting themselves like there is no crime in DA. If you need help to solve the crime post the crime and stop picking crime of friends and family of crimestoppersdominica to post on the site. waste of a good website.

    More Cameras, more common Scence, Help us to help you. Prevention is better than Cure. when the Thieves strike they have no respect for any one. Hope those bad guys are caught and face the wrath of the Law.

    Pardon my ignorance but why would he have these items in his car IN PLAIN VIEW of miscreants?? I don’t condone theft but common sense should have told you to secure your valuables out of sight. Why tempt evil?? I do hope the items were insured and he can at least be compensated for his loss…

      The windows look tinted to me. It was just a brazen act of theft. I believe they knew who he was and decided to try their luck.

      Put out a reward and you’ll see how soon they’ll be sold out.

    A blurred screenshot? come on! Show the video man. I might identify one of them by their walk/gait.

    While we will never condone stealing , breaking and entering etc, and the guys need to be caught post-haste and charged and convicted, it is gross negligence for a so called top executive to be carrying around that much valuable merchandise in his vehicle.

    He should be held responsible for the loss of the items by C&W..

    The CCTV video screenshot shows a time of 11:20pm. Mr Guiste indicated that the incident occurred around 6:15pm. A time difference of 5 hours. The discrepancy in time may prove to be a point of contention in the hands of a good lawyer when/if the person(s) are apprehended.

    And that made news? Chooops….

  21. Be disciplined
    January 25, 2017

    NEVER leave valuables in your vehicle. Acquire that discipline. If you are inside of your house, work place or anywhere else and you happen to remember the items and feel lazy to go back in the vehicle, go back…take them out…..it’s worth it…

    the thieves need to be caught..

    this is a sign of our social condition. let us wake up from our slumber and denial.

    I’m lost for words really. The Head of Marketing at Flow drives around a treasure trove on wheels in Roseau and gets his car broken into. I condemn the actions of those men and they should be brought to justice.
    However on a different note, this executive may have exposed Flow to a security beach because of his own lack of judgment. Equipment worth over $7000 ec is just left in your vehicle secure but unattended and in plain sight. I think you need a proper security brief sir which would put you up to speed to the dos and don’t when it comes to taking necessary security measures to protect personal and company equipment and data.

    Im afraid you ought to be ashamed of yourself sir. You should have known better. Let that be a good security lesson learnt for you.

      Really? So a person supposed to hide things on their own locked property? And why do you assume the items were in plain sight?

    • Dante Jones
      January 25, 2017

      “In plain sight” – judging from the pictures the vehicle was closed, (and most likely locked) and the windows are even shaded. They had to break the glass to enter so how does this constitute being left in “plain sight”.

      Instead of writing this long screed rebuking someone who was a victim to a crime how about calling out the delinquent attitude that is becoming an increasing trend in youth today. smdh

    Why would this man want people to contact him? This is better left to the police to investigate.
