Cops appeal to witnesses in gas station robbery

| 08/06/2012

(CNS): Police are still looking for a number of witnesses that were present during a robbery which took place last Thursday that have not yet spoken to detectives investigating the crime. An RCIPS spokesperson explain that there were several witnesses to the incident and although police have managed to speak to a number of them they believe others have not yet come forward. The robbery happened on 31 May at the Eastern Avenue Texaco when a lone masked man entered the store armed with what appeared to be a gun and stole money from the cashier.  The suspect escaped on foot in the direction of the Swamp.

Detectives said that not all the witnesses have yet been identified and they are now appealing to anyone who was in the store when the robbery occurred or who may have witnessed anything suspicious and has not yet spoken to police to come forward.

Information can be passed to the Drugs and Serious Crimes Task Force via 949-4222, the RCIPS tip-line. 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8744(TIPS)

    Imagine being in a shop where an armed robbery took place and not giving a statement to the police. That would not happen in any other country. 

     

    Then again in any other country the cops would look at the CCTV footage to get the licence plates of the cars in the forecourt and find out who used their debit/ credit card in the store, or even check to see who's mobile phones where in the area and then come and knock on your door.

     

    Here they just fill out a couple of forms and throw them on the "unsolved robberies" pile back at the station and get back to BBMing their baby mommas.

    My advice to the official police would be to ask the witnesses if they observed the robber removing his boots and placing them on the counter.

    What? People in Cayman not talking to the police – it's unheard of! The RCIP should be held accountable for this!
