Budva – It seems that not only those who want to sun bathe, swim, and have a great time are looking forwards to summer vacations in Budva. Unfortunately along with the tourists we have numerous thieves, criminals, mostly “specialists” for theft in hotel rooms and around the beaches coming to the capital of tourism. Often, and that was confirmed this year too, under the mask of season workers or tourists, thieves drawn with good pray, because on every step there are a lot of possibilities for their deviant instincts to be carried out, they come to Budva to try their theft luck.
For many of them the metropolis of Montenegrin tourism is a real paradise for their expeditions, and even though police mostly manages to find them, because greed is a strange human “virtue” from year to year they are coming back, hoping for a better prey.
Budva police this season too has their hand full of work, so there almost a day doesn’t go buy that they don’t have an action of search for a bandit. With extremely good score, 60% of caught thieves and burglars, which compared to the west European colleagues is three times better in the section of property criminal, numerous criminal are still led with a motto “it won’t be me who they will catch”.
Beaches, hotel and rooms in privates accommodation, luxurious cars are places on which we can find mostly thieves from neighboring countries, and it is often also that we can see some our domestic thieves operating during the weekend. Precious jewelry, watches, cameras, mobile phones, video cameras, laptops, and most of all the money are just a part of what the thieves take with themselves.
Techniques are various. They sneak into hotel rooms through the balcony, break windows on cars, they enter silently in private accommodation while the guests are not there, and take things from swimmers while they are in the water. However there almost isn’t a thief who can resist not to steal again after succeeding once hoping that they won’t be revealed, but as it was said for Vijesti in Budva police every criminal in the end gets caught.
– Only during the last month and a half officers in Budva center for security have caught more than 10 criminals who had several thefts, burglaries, and break-ins in the area of the municipality. We use various methods from operational knowledge and information which we have up to ambushes, surveillance, cooperation with the citizens, and all of that allows us to get in track to all those criminals. We follow most of them and get them in the act. This season safety in Buda is on an even higher level. Police is trying and is succeeding in being more efficient in order to decrease the degree of the criminal – said for Vijesti in the police. We shouldn’t’ remind you that Budva turns from a silent town which has 15.000 inhabitants into a tourist jungle during the summer with more than 100.000 guests which many criminals consider to be a good way to hide in the mass and do their job.
Good network which the police has developed, identification of the suspicious persons, information from the citizens, many tracks which thieves levae behind even though they are trying to hide them are just some details which the police uses while making a puzzle in order to reveal the identity of the criminal.
The case of the legendary room cleaner from tourist lodgment Slovenska plaza, a woman from Kraljevo, V.B. 25 who as a season worker managed to “clean” more than 13 rooms. Namely, while the guests, mostly rich Russians and Ukraine people were absent she entered the rooms and stole valuable things money, jewelry, mobile phones, video cameras which she took to her apartment. Inspectors for property criminal have caught the girl. Her colleague a man from Loznica Zivojin Polic 25 was caught in the same lodgment 20 days later while he was “operating” around the rooms. Police also caught a guy from Podgorica H.S. who was a specialist for expensive cars. He robed more than ten luxurious cars on parking lots in Budva. He usually broke the rear window, after which he stole everything from the cars taking away cell phones, cameras, laptops, and money. When he was caught he had 5.000 euros with him. In difference to him, underage guys from Pljevlja A.K. and A.C. had several burglaries in the apartments and one of their trophies was the robbery of the Post office in Becic from which they have taken a large quantity of credits for mobile phones as well as the money.
These are just some of the cases of serious burglaries which the police discovered but the recommendation stays for everyone that they should look where they are leaving their things because thieves have an easy hand which can reach anywhere.
5 MEN FROM THE INTERPOLE LIST FELL
Who would say that Budva will be a temping destination for the persons from Interpol list. Drawn by that crowd many of them think that they will be unnoticed in the town, and very often with a well-forged ID documents they are convinced that the discretion is guaranteed. However the police with well organized actions just during the last month has caught 5 persons according to the central international list of Belgrade National central bureau of Interpol, among whom is the case of Milosevic’s police general Vlastimir Djordjevic, from the red Hague warrant.
Budva police managed to get in track to those criminals for whom there were warrants because of hard felonies from murders to stealing. They locate them and arrest them. Many of them didn’t dream they will ever be caught, and they were arrested while they were drinking with their friends or while they were having their night out.
A LOT OF DRUG HAS BEEN TAKE AWAY
Even though it is a synonym of good fun, and as such it is recognized as a destination of young people Budva during the summer is visited also by those who like to earn money from sale of drugs, and who want to have good time while doing so.
The record itself that during the first half of the year Budva police managed to take away 1, 6 kg of marijuana, 145 g of heroin, and smaller amounts of other drugs sepals enough about the fact that sector which is dealing with this kind of work has its hands full.
Only during the last month and a half more than 10 persons were caught, mostly from neighboring countries, who committed felonies of “Illegal manufacture, possession, and distribution of drugs”. And the cases are different, from transport of drugs in backpacks while traveling by bus under the excuse that they are tourists, taking of drug in concerts and public events, up to those who are trying to get the drug in the town in a trunk of a car.
