To ‘steal’ a vehicle, there has to be an intention to permanently deprive the owner of it, something difficult to do on an Island nine miles by five.
Most vehicles taken are done so temporarily and are recorded as ‘TADA motor vehicle’, (take and drive away); the UK equivalent offence of ‘Taking a Conveyance’.
