An Alert for all Residents of Alto Boquete

As we approach the end of the year, crime always picks up. Following is information about a recent crime spree in Boquete.

We need to alert all residents of Alto Boquete about the confirmed activity of a burglary gang operating in Alto Boquete. They have reportedly been responsible for more than 6 burglaries of locally owned homes in the area. The police are investigating, but need your help.
If you see anything out of the ordinary, please immediately call Rodny Direct. We will forward your information to the police.

The gang is suspected to be using a pickup truck with gardening equipment in the back. We believe that they are using this as a cover for casing houses to be burglarized. If you see a suspicious truck, or are approached by someone offering gardening services, or anything else suspicious, take a picture of the truck and the license plate. Email or Whatsapp it to Rodny Direct immediately. Call if you need help sending your pictures.

In particular, you need to get cedulas from any worker who comes on your property. Again, just take a picture of the cedula with your phone. If you are uncomfortable asking for cedulas, please call Rodny and he will get the information for you. Be alert to look for tattoos, which may indicate gang affiliation. This is very important.

Thanks in advance for your help! Alert citizens have broken many cases like this in the past.

Rodny Direct.


Help Tom – Help Chiriquí


The other day I mentioned that Rubi Ciana is up for the Héros of Panama. It is now time to vote and you can vote on an hourly basis.

There was an $8,000 award for being nominated and there will be another $30,000 for the winner.

The McCormack Foundation will be able to help a lot of folks if Rubi wins.

To vote, click HERE and vote often. You do not need to be in Panama to vote. As the graphic says, voting stops on November 20.

Some of my British friends wished me “good luck with the election” and I don’t have the heart to tell them that I wasn’t running
