The Bermuda Police Service has taken delivery of a new police vessel. “Heron 3” is a 32’ Boston Whaler that replaces its predecessor of the same name. The former boat, a 27’ Boston Whaler was taken out of service last December following a commissioned marine survey that revealed structural hull failure beyond repair. The boat was 18 years old.
The new “Heron 3” was specially equipped for police patrols by Brunswick Commercial Government Products Ltd., based in the USA. It is powered by twin Evinrude 300HP G2 outboard engines that were purchased through the local Evinrude dealer, Bermuda Marine and Supply. The total cost of the vessel is $245,000 and funding was made available in the Police capital budget for 2015/16.
Today a 42 year old man of no fixed abode was put before the courts for a series of burglaries that took place on the island in recent weeks. The man pled guilty to 9 counts of burglary, 1 count of going equipped, 1 count of escaping lawful custody and one count of resisting arrest. The arrest of the 42 year man, is a result of a targeted investigation centered around the neighborhood affected by recent series of break ins. The Bermuda Police Service would like to thank the public for their assistance, as we know that personal and invasive nature of burglaries.
