Police charge suspect TV robbers

| 13/07/2012

(CNS): Four men are expected to appear incourt on Monday charged in connection with the robbery at the WestStar offices in May. Continuing their recent success in rounding up suspected armed robbers the police said Friday that three men, aged 23, 27 and 33 years, have been charged with robbery and possession of an imitation firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence while a fourth man who is 29  has been charged with handling stolen property. The men are accused of holding up staff at the customer service offices of the local TV station in George Town during a daylight heist.

The charges come in the wake of a series of arrests over the last week or so in connection with an armed robbery at Cayman National Bank last month when three masked and armed men stole around a half million dollars. However, the men collided with an armoured cash van as they attempted to getaway and dropped some $100,000 when they were forced to flee on foot.

Shortly after the daylight bank heist police arrested one man in an operation in West Bay and soon rounded up seven suspects in connection with both the bank and WestStar TV hold ups.
