Robbers in 3rd doorstep heist

| 18/01/2012

crime-scene-tape.jpg(CNS): In the third robbery of its kind in a matter of a few days the police were on the scene of a home in George Town on Thursday night. A police spokesperson said that an investigation had opened into a doorstep heist in George Town. Two armed men reportedly confronted a woman at about 7.25 pm tonight (Tuesday 17 January 2012) in Antoinette Ave, Webster Estates as she arrived home. The men demanded cash before making off with a small quantity of the woman's money and some jewellery. Police said no shots were fired and no-one was injured in the incident but no descriptions of the suspects were available at the time of the report.

The robbery comes on the heels of two similar crimes at the weekend when a West Bay man was robbed in his own home Sunday evening by a masked armed robber at around 6:53 who stole his wallet and two cell phones and a mugging again on the doorstep of a home in Palm Dale. In the early hours of Sunday morning two masked men armed with a knife and a gun stole a cash bag containing an undisclosed sum before escaping on foot from a home owner as he arrived at his house.

Anyone who was in the area at the relevant time of the latest crime, tonight and has information which could assist police is asked to contact George Town police station on 949-4222, the RCIPS tip-line 949-7777, or Crime Stoppers 800-8477 (TIPS).

    Far too many young guys are just out there idling on the streets.  They are being ignored by police on patrols, their baby mommas are supported by Social Service…so life is good for them!  I always wonder why so many get employed at Christmas to clean up, and mind you in most cases it is a good job that is done…but why are they never retained somehow and employed to continue earning an honest living.  Yes many of them have no ambition or vision but if they were my children I would haul them up off therir backside and make them work.  Of course this must start when they are just kids.  Too many children are being allowed to cruise through life without striking a lick as they say.

    I say allow people to be trained and armed with a fire arm. The reason there is less of this in the states is because you can get a license and backpack a gun on terms of self defense. Why would I(as a thief) try to steal from some who could possibly turn around with a gun (knowing how to use it better than me) and end my life. When you take away weapons from law abiding citizens that would use them to protect themselves, the only people left with weapons are the criminals. Not even down to the most of the police have guns how can they protect us, especially when they take 40mins to come from around the corner. I have witnessed first-hand a bank robbery in cayman wherethe two security guards had to cower on the floor as men came in with guns and beat them to the ground. What sense of security do I have when the "bad guys" can bully around our protectors. Cayman needs to do something about this right now before it gets worse. The criminals are being empowered by the lack of discipline and authority, and doing as they like. You will soon see less people coming and supporting the island, after all who wants to come to country where you can't even walk the streets without getting mugged. Whether it be arming the law abiding public or security or increasing the police force, something needs to be done.

    Problem is the police / government are allowing this to happen. Robberies escalated in 2011 and we brushed it below the carpet. Private residence properties were not reported in the media, police would show up a couple of hours after the event, take a statement another couple of days later and then nothing. It was kept in the dark and continued to grow until here we are  – cannot even walk from your home to work.

    Round up these punks, keep on their backs, follow them, pull them in, question them so they know they are being watched. People of Cayman, we need to stop these people helping themselves to our property.

    Commisioner Baines, do you follow up on reports or are they just filed? When a witness gives a statement do you check back to see what progress has been made on the incident – or is it just filed?

    I for one will be carrying a bug spray or something that I can and will spray into any attackers face – and will dealw ith the consequences later.

    This isn't really news anymore, everyone knows that it's not safe to walk Cayman Streets at night and it seems not even during the day any longer. And I am really no longer surprised when I read this stuff. Caymanians are like sheep and aren't really prepared or willing to do what it takes to put a stop to this stuff, the police seem to be satisfied with the fact the since lawfull people are unarmed then these type of incidents won't turn into shootouts so they are OK with the fact that thieves just rob people as long as no one is hurt..

    And here's one more morning tidbit for you….

    Police are investigating a robbery attempt that occurred near the BJ Tape Club in Bodden Town.

    The robbery attempt occurred about 10:30 p.m. and police confirm no one was injured.

    Breaking news, but nothing new..

    A woman was mugged at the junction of Eden Road and South Church Street at 7:05 a.m.

    The victim tells Cayman 27 she was walking to work and saw a guy sitting on a fence. When she walked passed him he said “stop, give me your bag.” He spoke with a Caymanian accent.

    I guess this was her own fault, she shouldn't have been walking alone in broad daylight, she have been carrying a Hand Bag and she shouldn't have any money or Jewery on her to be stolen.

    These types of comments just go to show what Cayman has actually and finally come to, a place where it is unsafe to walk the streets.

    One thing I can say that different in Miami is that thieves and thugs usually end up in jail or in the grave. In Cayman it's like wolves in a sheeps den..

    In Florida you are also 1 in 500,000 – 700,000 people for robberies and murders. A young family can live without the guilt of merely turning on your a/c and the conveniences of having the capability of buying fruits and vegetables  along with the many musuems and parks to take your kids to. There are areas that most of these crimes take place and they are easy to identify. There are also many areas of the US (and other countries) that there is minimal crime with the same or more of a  population than Cayman.  Dont get me wrong there is no place like home and we were set apart mainly because of the warmth and kind hearts of our people…but we are losing all this and so fast its scary Cayman… very scary.  A lot to do with greed, losing our culture, our youth and sad to say our lack of unity and standing up together. One can and have tolerated the exuberant high cost of living but that plus the ever increasing crime gives us something to really think about! Eventually there will be a big division between rich and poor as its obvious we are catering to the riches and forgetting our people…

    New year, new crime wave.  Look out good citizens the criminals have started to do their thing again.  We must all be conscious of our surroundings at all times.  It is what we have to learn to do now.  As the Law has made it almost impossible for law abiding citizens to (really) protect themselves we must adapt to use other means for protection. Provide extra lights around our property (CUC happy); criminals love the dark; call ahead to have someone meet you when you get home (if possible); use timers to automatically turn on and off lights and radios to make home look like someone is there; do not give out information about when you will be away on vacation; talk with neighbors about looking out for each other and keep an eye out for strangers in the neghborhood.  I try to write down licence plate # when I notice strange vehicles on the road where I live. Just a few suggestions on what we can try to help ourselves.

    Now the RCIP needs to step up to the plate.  What are they doing to be proactive during this time?  Are we seeing the RCIP out and visible to the public?  We have almost 400 police officers.  What has happened to the promised foot patrols?  I think I saw them for a few days around the GT port area the last time we had a 'spike' in crime.  The police need to actively walk the beat in the areas that have shown a rise in crime.  By now they must have some method or plan to attack the criminals in this society.  I bet if they took a close look at the trends in the crime sprees they will see that when certain individuals are locked up the crime level drops and when they are back out of jail it increases.

    To ALL the good people of these islands, we need to work together to help each other.  The law enforcement/protection arm of the government has let us down.  I really don't know how much more the good people can withstand before there is an eruption.  Let us pray but don't close both eyes because when they are opened again something might be missing.

    I spoke to my wife about this and I think its prudent to say only to wear jewlery out that you don't mind losing. Meaning put the diamond rings and expensive watches in the safe. Buy a simple gold band and put it on your ring finger so you are not constantly tried to be picked up on by all the eager males out there. Wear the bling only at home when the doors are locked or at a party.  Do not wear out at night unless your are going out to a  restaurant where you are being picked up or dropped off at the front door. Only park your car and walk in if you know there is security there (still no garuntee). Wear the bling out only when you are going from point A to point B and back again without coming into contact with the General Public such as stopping off at a gas station ect. IF you are wearing a rock that is a years pay to some guy standing behind you while you write a check at the tile store or the gas station etc…he may have nothing better to do then to hang back, wait for you to leave and follow you to see where you live. Don't make yourself a target. It's sad that it has come to this but protect yourself , your things and your family. This isn't the Cayman we knew 10 years ago and it is going to get worse. The world is headed for a worse recession than we saw in 2008. People will become desperate. Get a safe that bolts to the floor and put your things in it you don't want to loose. Demand from our useless politicians that if we have a clear police record that we are able own firearms and that a straight forward process be bought forward to do so.

      10:07 the Prophet says then we must stop carrying cash with us from our business and from the bank without first having someone to watch our backs.  Is it really that difficult to ask a family member to follow you home if you are taking cash.  Besides the time has now come that each one of us would be foolish not to have some sort of defence, even if it is a can of Bageon spray or especially a self ignite torch with a fire spout about one yard long.

      It means that we cannot walk un armed in the night alone, simple as that.  If you are out ina club or bar or restaurant, pay attention to anyone out of the ordinary who enters and sips on one beer all night.  Order a plate of french fries one pepsi and two straws.  We are not observing those around us enough.

    These cynical "Caymankind" comments are getting old now. Obviously it must be foreigners posting them. Obviously these foreigners have something against Caymanians to be posting these cynical attacks against what they think is the culture of a whole race. Why are you here if that's what your opinion is? Keep it up…everything in its own time. All it is doing is creating a bigger rift between the two demographics. Don't be surprised when things boil over between Caymanians and foreigners and a whole pile of innocent people (Caymanian and foreigner alike) are caught up in the middle of it. Ask for peace between the two then

    • Anonymous says:

      Although I agree with you that the Caymankind bashing is pathetic, I sense the expat anger is derived from the fact that our LAWS make it clear to those who have been here many years, they are not welcome. I'm not talking about the newcomers since the rollover, but the ones who were here prior and have their lives inhumanely trapped in an retroactive law.

      Ironically, the law was put in place to prevent many from becoming Caymanian, getting votes, and ending up with welfare entitlements. The welfare entitlement was thought to be a massive issue as we could not afford "those" people. Because we wouldn't be able to afford "those" people, it was thought they would turn to a life of crime so its better to get rid of them NOW. 

      Common sense dictates that "those" people upon retirement, would return to their countries of birth simply because its cheaper to live there. Common sense dictates that if you kick out committed and productive people and bring in those who have no reason to be committed the islands, then economic growth will suffer. When economies suffer, crime increases.

      So we may have Caymankind, but we don't have too much Common Sense.

    So now we have a new fashion in crime – direct confrontation.  Criminals picking off whomever they want, where and when. And the police remain in their air conditioned cars, oblivious.

    Apparently not many officials can see the need for good citizens to be able to defend themselves. Instead of encouraging this, they suppress it.

    Does it really make sense that our good society continues to allow a minority to prey off them?  Have we not removed ourselves from the laws of the jungle?

    Webster Estates – no boundaries left. The more brazen these robbers get, it won't be just items they take. For how many years has Cayman been warned this was going to happen? This is what happens when you kick out productive people and bring in those you don't know.  What do you call it? Oh yes, boarder control. The escalation in crime was inevitable. Perhaps its time Caymanians concede to those who know better and ask how to get out of this mess. 

    • Anonymous says:

      Yeah, rollover got rid of many lawabiding, ethical, productive, honest and good people who had been residing here for years and who had the best interests of this place at heart and wanted to see it prosper for themselves, their families and for Caymanians alike.   Then they brought in the intransigents or those who know they will only be here temporarily and so have no loyalty or desire to report any crime they might witness, especially when it is a local doing it, because they don't want to risk their permits being cancelled (or worse repercussions to them), if somehow the local finds out who reported them.  No wonder crime is going up.

          Cocaine has no smell.  You are probably thinking of the residual smell from the oil based transportation solvents.

      Miami has houses at 30% the cost of Cayman's. It has excellent hospitals, schools, shows, entertainment and sporting events. It has federal income tax (no state tax) and sales tax etc. With duties of 22%, CUC (four times more), fuel prices (double), and work permit fees, we are taxed to the max here.

      At least Miami has a decent wide flat beach.  Fodor's Guides now describe Grand Cayman as "featureless".

        We have a much better beach than Miami has.

        At least in Miami, the police turn up when you call.  And they actually solve crimes once in a while!!

      Yea and you can get a reasonable, clean hotel room with breakfast for 50 bucks a night in Miami, nowhere in Cayman can you get that. You'd pay 4 times that to stay in sunset house for god sake.
