In these neighborhoods of Bucaramanga there would be a restriction on motorcycle grills

In these areas of Bucaramanga, ‘hot spots’ were identified where the greatest number of motorcycle thefts are committed.

To put a stop to the phenomenon known as ‘motothieves’ in which criminals carry out thefts and flee in these vehicles, the Bucaramanga Mayor’s Office is preparing a strategy that includes the restriction of grillers.

“We are studying the critical areas or ‘hot’ areas with the highest number of thefts. If you make a map with the complaints, you will find that they are focused areas,” said the mayor of Bucaramanga, Jaime Andrés Beltrán in an interview with Vanguardia.

Beltrán Martínez explained that after determining these zones, some quadrants could be implemented in which police surveillance is increased and others in which the traffic of motorcycle grills is prohibited.

“We have to be sensible but forceful in our decisions. If we generalize the solution to the entire city we are going to generate chaos in mobility. However, if we know that we have some ‘hot’ areas where ‘motor thieves’ operate the most, we must attack there,” the president said.


The Mayor pointed out that the most critical areas are in areas of the Álvarez, San Francisco and San Alonso neighborhoods because a large number of people circulate there on foot and the topography of the roads makes it easy for criminals to escape easily.
