Here is some good news about the bad news. There were some incidents of burglary and criminality in Aruba reported on this board and elsewhere. The good news is that several perpetrators have been caught. I posted an article from the Diario on my blog under Aruba News Direct showing how a 17 year old guy was caught with the goods on him. Furthermore, there were more arrests relative to hotel crime and car thievery.
So, action has been taken. We'll see how the punishment is doled out but I'm pleased to see some action.
