Over the weekend, Friday 7 July – Sunday 9 July, police operations resulted in the arrest of four men believed to be involved in the recent spate of robberies and firearms offences that have occurred across Grand Cayman.
Those arrested include a 22 year-old man, a 26 year-old man and a 20 year-old man, all from George Town, and a 21 year-old man from Bodden Town.
The men have been arrested for a range of offences including robbery, attempt robbery, breach of court bail, and drug offences. One man has been bailed whilst the three other men are either charged with drugs and court offences and are attending court in custody today, or they remain in custody at the Cayman Islands Detention Centre under investigation..
In addition, police have recovered the blue Jeep Liberty that is believed to have been used in at least two robberies reported last week on Thursday 6 July, and a black Suzuki, used in the gas station robbery in Savannah, on Friday 30 June.
“The RCIPS is focused on locating and dismantling the network of individuals involved in the recent spate of robberies. By employing targeted operations and increased patrols we have managed to successfully apprehend four men over this weekend, and four men last weekend. We believe that our efforts are having an effect on these recent crimes” says Detective Superintendent Peter Lansdown, head of RCIPS Criminal Investigations Unit.
