  6. I have learned that last night around 3AM, a golden retriever was stolen from a resident in Oriana. There were clear signs of a break in through the fence. Two other dogs were not taken. None of the dogs woke up the owners. If you know of his whereabouts, please contact the owner or call me at 6446-8850 and I will pass your information to the owner. Rodny

  9. Sent to Rodny Direct members yesterday First of all, we want to wish every one of our members, new and old, and everyone in the Boquete community, a great Christmas and New Year. We have been blessed with a relatively quiet 2016 crime scene in Boquete. However, Christmas is prime time for robbers and burglars, so we need to pass on some important information for your safety. Thanks to the Panamanian grapevine, I have learned that Panama City gangs are organizing to attack both Panamanian and expat homes in Chiriqui over the Christmas - New Years holidays. The police are well aware of this problem and are beefing up their defenses. You need to do the same. We know, for example, that the gangs are recruiting local youths to act as spotters - to identify vulnerable residences and watch the activities of the residents. When you leave for that Christmas party, the spotter calls it in and you come home to find your Christmas big screen gone. Be very aware of who might be watching your house and especially who sees you coming and going. No car in the driveway is a dead giveaway that all the owners are gone. Return of Slim to Las Brisas Some of you might remember earlier this year that a very thin robber entered an occupied house in Emerald Drive through a one foot square opening in otherwise very secure burglar bars. Subsequently, several burglaries were attempted, apparently by The Slim Gang. Alert residents spotted and photographed some presumed gang members and their activity dropped off. Last weekend, Gwen Manning, one of the first and most stalwart members of Rodny Direct, had her house attacked at 1:30 in the morning while she was home and awake, packing for a trip. She found a very tall, thin robber, dressed all in black, reaching through her burglar bars and using a long stick to fish out her purse (empty). Gwen is no shrinking violet and is well prepared. She immediately grabbed her community alert walkie-talkie and summoned help. You can read the rest in her attached report, which is excellent, detailed and a model for a crime report. She has agreed to let me publish it for the benefit of the community. The key to being safe in your house is knowing when anyone enters your yard or approaches your house. Security lights, simple perimeter alarms and controlled access are all effective ways of making sure you are never surprised. Be safe and have a merry Christmas, Rodny Moreno Fuentes President, Rodny Direct ATTEMPTED ROBBERY IN BRISAS.pdf

  12. Necesitamos alertar a todos los residentes de Alto Boquete sobre la actividad confirmada de una banda de robo que opera en este sector. Según los informes, han sido responsables de más de 6 robos de viviendas de propiedad panameños en la zona. La policía está investigando, pero necesita su ayuda. Si ve algo fuera de lo común, por favor llame inmediatamente a la Policía Nacional al 104 o 720-2145. Su información será confidencial. Se sospecha que la pandilla está usando una camioneta con equipo de jardinería en el vagón. Creemos que están utilizando esto como una fachada para identificar las casas que pueden ser robadas mientras los dueños no están. Si usted ve este pick up sospechoso, o se acercan a ofrecerle servicios de jardinería, o cualquier otra cosa sospechosa, tome una foto del pick up y la placa. Y llame al 104 o 720-2145 En particular, usted necesita obtener cédulas de cualquier trabajador en su propiedad. Y tenga precaución de personas tatuadas que pueden pertenecer a pandillas. Esto es muy importante. ¡Gracias de antemano por tu ayuda! Los ciudadanos alertas han impedido muchos casos como estos en el pasado.
  13. Because of the power outage last week, the Rodny Direct Tuesday Talk at the BCP Theater will happen at 10:30am November 8 The talk will include discussion of insurance options through Rodny Direct www.rodnydirect.com
  14. One of the great strengths of the Rodny Direct Helpline service is its association with the Panama Helpline in Coronado. Both organizations use the same professional database technology and are inter-operable so that one system can back up the other. Last Friday, October, 29, Rodny, doing night backup for Panama Helpline, received a call at 10:42PM from a member who reported a robber attempting to break into their home. With their Coronado resident ID, Rodny was able to call the Coronado police and direct them immediately to the scene of the crime in progress. The robbery was foiled and once again demonstrates the robustness and value of the Rodny Direct Helpline system.
