WestStar TV robbery Suspects cropped.jpg(CNS): Cayman’s cable company is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest, charge and conviction of any of the men involved last week’s armed robbery. The first ever armed robbery of WestStar is one of ten to take place so far this year in the Cayman Islands. Three masked men armed with guns stormed the television centre and threatened staff and customers in the WestStar customer service office last Thursday afternoon (24 May). This is not the first time a local business has put up a reward for help in solving an armed robbery, but all of the crimes for which rewards were offered remain unsolved.

Police are still looking for the television robbers, who were caught on camera. Three men arrested in the wake of the daylight heist were released by police after they were eliminated from the enquiry.

      Please use the reward money and buy a few Money Packs.  The Dye ones seems to be very effective. 

      Latest news where, Algernon James robbed a bank and then had the exploding dye pack detonate while he was browsing jewelry in a pawn shop.  He was arrested in no time….

    I'm telling you, this has got even me stumped at the moment, so go easy on the RCIP for cryin' out loud. Thank you.
