Robbery At Tradewinds Condo's
« on: December 19, 2013, 04:54:53 PM »
This is a Cut & Paste:

Rick fron Rockys says a guest was robbed at gunpoint at Tradewinds. The chica went to the bathroom and fed he keys to her accomplices. They let themselves in and robbed him of a lot of stuff. They made him open his safe. Hey supposedly got $5000 in cash. Phone with pics of the chica. Watches you name it, they got it. They made him strip. Put a gun to his head. She left with them. Chica supposedly worked at some restaurant on the Playa (Beach). Rick wasnt sure which one. Nor did he have a description of the chica.
Any updated info?

We'll got damn. I'm staying (presumably) at one of his properties (sosua suites) in January...maybe that $100.00 a night a Tierra Linden is worth it after all!

If its true, then it definitely was a planned hit, and they knew what he had. I guess we all need a reminder this is a very poor country, and
people are capable of  doing anything when it comes to feeding their family.  Never ever tell a Chica how much you're holding, better yet just leave your
jewelry and flashy shit in at home. 

Thanks for the info BK69.

Has anyone ever heard of anyone getting robbed in the rich country called the United States. Damn I am watching the news now. Person robbed, person killed, person kidnapped...Damn it is not the Dominican it is the United States! Silly above fullish statement, we need to remind ourselves to be careful anywhere in this world. I wish folks think before they write, really!

Need to remind guys that getting drunk and inviting a stranger into your "home" is something we'd consider a "stupid action" at home. So, doing it on vacation doesn't make it any smarter.

Let's be safe out there!

Probably more to this story than we know. I've never seen a hotel that didn't require a chica to leave her cedula at the front desk before going up to the room to keep things like this from happening.  It will be interesting to see what Rick has to say.

Tradewinds is at the Caribe Campo across from the meat store on the main street called El Todo Carne or La Toda Carne whatever the name and where they are building the big store like at the Malicon in Puerto Plata...They are apartments so no ID is needed...Security is there but there is nothing they can do if you invite someone in your apartment and they have a gun to your head.

Ok Gents this is a direct message to me from Rick!

"Yes, it was apartment 44. What happened was the guy got comfortable
with a girl he was with for 4 days and did not do what I always
recommend people do when staying at Trade Winds and that is to lock
your keys in the safe whenever you have a guest in the room. He did
not do that and when he was distracted she opened the metal gate and
let the thieves into the apartment. This could not have happened IF he
had continued to follow my advice and locked the keys in the safe as
recommended. I know you are smarter than that my friend and you are with a
long time girl that is sweet and respectable. Crimes here, especially this time of year are crimes of opportunity and he gave her every opportunity. He is back at Trade
Winds and you will get a chance to get the story from him. He is
staying until at least mid January and will be there when you are."

Let me know if you have any further questions my friend

Take care,

Rick

I stayed at the tradwimds. There is no security to check the girl's ID, etc,...

I liked it because it was quiet and dark at night. It's a bit out the way and a little scary at night.

Getting followed up athe hill to the condos in the pitch black of night while motoconchs follow you with their engines cut trying sell you drugs. This wasn't for me. I rented a SUV after a few days to avoid this.

The only girls who I brought back were from CMP...at least if there was a problem, I would be able to track here down through her workplace.

All others, I took to the cabanas.

Ok I want to know something...Why is it that we all have different stories...I have stayed at the Tradewinds for 2 years now and will continue...Now why is it that one says motoconchos approach him to sell drugs but no motoconcho has ever approached me to sell drugs walking up or down the hill day or night!...Or no motoconcho has approached me here and there to purchase drugs...I just do not quite understand the made up stories...I choose the place because it is out of the way,private for me, and does have security...There are many Europeans that live there...If you all read what Rick wrote, it was a setup and a guy with someone that he did not know and trusted...A tough lesson learned and i hope she and others are caught...The guy will tell me the story when I return...Also why do they tell you to lock your stuff up wherever you stay with a woman that you do not know!

I stay in that very unit all the time. Or nearby if Rick doesn't have it available. That area is my preferred place to stay. As has been mentioned, it's quiet and no one bothers you. I have never been bothered by anyone as I walk to the condo. I am only ever approached by motos when I am in the thick of things. Never off the Strip.

I make a point of being friendly, within reason, to all the locals in that area. I smile. I say ¡Buenos días! and go on my way. In October, I chatted one fellow at the construction site for the new La Sirena, asking details about the project. He was polite and informative and many of the workers say us chatting respectfully for the 5-10 minutes that I was there. After that, whenever I would walk past, they would all say hello and warn me of trucks moving, etc. No one has been anything but polite and social up there. There was one incident, a few years back, and the locals I knew suggested that I wait before going out. (There was some strange fellow shouting...) They moved him along and all was fine.

Tradewinds has a little guard shack and there were 2 guys at night and one in the day along with various groundsmen the last few visits. If someone was robbed there it was because, as Rick has said, the guy was too lazy (and too stupid) to follow simple protocols to protect himself. And for that, he was taken advantage of.

1) Don't get lazy.
2) NEVER trust anyone.
3) Never flaunt what you have.
