| 26/05/2011

(CNS): No one was injured and no shots were fired as a single armed man robbed the McRuss Grocery Store on  Party Lane in George Town last night. Police say they received a report that the robbery had taken place at 8:50pm on Wednesday, 25 May, by a man described as brown skinned, about 5 feet 5  inches  tall, and  wearing blue jeans, a green camouflage jacket, black gloves and a black ski mask. The cashier at the store told officers that  the man  had  entered  the  store  armed  with  a  handgun  and  demanded cash from  the  till. She had handed over the days takings and the offender had fled on foot. 

Police are appealing for witnesses who saw this man acting suspiciously prior to entering  the shop or when he fled after committing the robbery.

      Someone is doing that boy's laundry!  If you are a Mother, Auntie, Girlfriend, or Neighbor and you know of a young man who is 5'5 (pretty darn short) who owns a camouflage jacket, quietly pick up your cell phone now and call 1-800-TIPS.

    He probably robbed them for gas money so he can drive down the street for a bigger heist.

      Meanwhile at a Government Press Briefing, Premier of the Cayman Islands MacKeeva Bush stated categorically that serious crime was down by some 87.345%.

      He further stated that the country was on the rebound and moving towards her former glory with "all sorts of projects" planned to bring back dem "sandwich eaters and rich people on mega yahcts".
