Flat tire or scraped car: watch where you stop

The Police are reporting several cases allegedly involving Colombians and Venezuelans who are reportedly using the trick of causing slight damage to a vehicle to get the driver to stop in order to rob them. As reported in Diario Libre, the Police have arrested a 52-year old Colombian, Robinson Suarez Perdomo in Moca accused of belonging to a gang that stole RD$475,000 in cash from inside a vehicle after deflating its tire. At the time of arrest, the Police say he was in possession of US$350,000 in cash plus RD$3,520 and a small tube used to take air out of a tire.

The Police also reported the arrest of 53-year old Antonio Segundo Pena near Las Americas Airport, after a complaint submitted by a Dominican woman, Isabel Reyes Luna, who said she was a victim of armed robbery after leaving a bank branch on the Duarte Highway and stopping due to a flat tire. When she stopped, RD$1,038,000 million was stolen from her plus US$500 and her personal documents.

Diario Libre recalls that ombudsman Zoila Martinez was recently abducted and robbed after her assailants crashed into her vehicle and she stopped and was then abducted and her vehicle stolen.
