Here is the note that I sent to Chris Parker this AM regarding our robbery last night
Here is the story on our robbery last night in Nassau
We are tied up at Nassau
Harbor Club when at 4:00 AM this morning I was awakened by a noise
IN our cabin
I jumped up to find that an individual was in our salon
going thru my shaving kit which he had taken from our stateroom near our bed
where we slept. He then ran up the companionway
slamming it behind him.
I grabbed a pair of pants and my gun and cautiously went on deck
, but the individual was gone.
Missing was our paddle board from the fore deck
Looking about we found salt water
all thru the cabin
where he had trod dripping. Things had been taken up into the cockpit
, back pack dumped out, but it seems that my interruption stopped the theft of other than the paddle board.
staff was of no use, I finally found the security
guard napping behind a wall.
The security staff would not call the police before their boss arrived so I finally got the police myself, but by then it was a waste.
I spoke with a friend who is a former police official here , who intimates that crime is in serious rise here.
Hopefully you can help warn others.
