Cops catch thief after giving chase

| 06/08/2011

(CNS): A twenty-three-year-old George Town man is currently in police custody after an early morning chase. At about 12:20am on Saturday, 6 August, on duty police officers were carrying out routine mobile patrols along Eastern Avenue when they spotted a man in the parking lot of Green Thumb Nursery wearing a dark coloured hoodie who appeared to be checking parked vehicles. As the officers approached the suspect he ran off and police gave chase on foot. The man was then apprehended by the officers in the BritCay parking lot.

The officers conducted a search of the surrounding area and found a black fabric face mask and a BlackBerry phone in the hedges that the suspected thief had jumped through. Continuing their search the officers also recovered a black and white ladies leather handbag. The man was arrested for theft, criminal trespass and going equipped to steal. He is currently in police custody as investigations continue a police spokesperson said.

Anyone with information on this or any other crime is asked to contact any of the police stations or 800TIPS (8477).

    Very good to know the police can still run faster than the crooks.

    Now let's see how well the case is processed, presented to the courts and whether the judgement is to serve justice. Catching them ain't the only thing the police need to do well.

    Thank you very much RCIPS for been very proactive lately. This is what the citizens of this country has been asking for. It is quite obvious regular and unpredicatable routine patrolling has been stepped up. We will give you all the support you need. May God continue to help and bless these our beautiful Cayman Islands

    Good job  -you  won't catch  them all-   let  me assume  here.Your windows were down.


    See I told you-  Those  air  conditioner closed up vehicles   driving  past don't serve  no  porpose for the public.   If some is 20feet  away theycannot  hear   or see the  person  in  distress.

      Sudden thought  – shouldn't all our police vehicles be convertibles? Hey, before you hit thumbs down, just think about it, I implore you!

    Cops catch thief after giving chase"  Now this is the kind of reports that Cayman want to hear about the police.  Now it shows us that instead of the police doing the normal lazy driving around without even checking out every body they are at last keeping a look out.

    I say well done, this is good works.  Good job done.  yes keep criminals at home.
