Robbers target George Town fashion store

| 30/08/2011

(CNS): Police were on the hunt Monday night for two masked gunmen who robbed a fashion store on Shedden Road at around 7:15pm. The robbers pulled up outside Awescay Fashions next to Funky Tangs in a grey Honda Civic. The men, who were armed with what appeared to be firearms, entered the store, threatened the woman who was working there before making off with a sum of cash. They drove off in the direction of Martin Drive but police said they believed that the robbers turned on Tigris Street and back on to Shedden Road. Both suspects are described as being of slim build and between 5'8" to 5'10" in height.

Police said they were described as brown skinned, wearing gloves and had black t-shirts wrapped around their faces. The suspect who spoke during the commission of the robbery had what has been described as a Caymanian accent.

No shots were fired and no-one was injured in the incident.

Anyone with any information about this crime, or who saw the suspects or the car before of after the crime, should contact George Town CID on 949-4222 or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477 (TIPS).

    Crime It will NEVER be less under the British Police System. It will only get worse. It is Obvious it does not work. Maybe 10 years ago but not today. The police must be ARMED and on active patrols shaking people up turning over stones. Real Police not doing your nails while on break police. We know who the perps are because if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck….it's a duck . They drive duck cars , talk and act like ducks. There are many bad people here perfectly happy to stay where there is no threat to their lives while they continue to terrorize the public for their crack and sneaker money. Great Job Governor. McKeeva "Crime is not my Job" Bush and Inspector Gadget. Give the right guy a 100 strong security force with the go ahead to profile, detain, pull over, survey and keep tabs on suspicious person we could change the Cayman Islands for good. Not talking about convicting anyone just pushing back and putting fear in to the people who currently have no fear. Got the wrong guy? Shouldn't be looking all Gansta ith your tint, pants on the ground grill up in your face kind of guy (or girl). Are you guys afraid or what? No confidence.

    Its time for a state of emergency like Trinidad. So many people are being arrested that would not have been possible under the normal laws.
