(CNS): Following yet another violent robbery in the George Town area, the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service has begun an investigation regarding Andy’s Rent-A-Car on Owen Roberts Drive near the airport. The well known car rental store was the scene of an armed robbery on Sunday, 16 November where robbers made off with cash, cheques and radios after injuring a member of staff.

Police said this afternoon that the 911 Emergency Communications Centre received a call from an employee at Andy’s around 9:20 pm on Sunday evening stating that two masked men had robbed the business of an undisclosed sum of money. Police responded and were told that the men entered through the front door carrying what appeared to be hand guns.

There were two employees on the premises at the time. The men demanded one of the staff members hand over cash and cheques, they took two Motorola radios that were in the building and left through the back door. One of the employees received minor injuries during the incident.

The suspects were both fully covered, including their faces. One of the men is described as about 5ft 6ins tall, of medium build and was wearing a dark grey long sleeve shirt. The other man is described as about 5ft 9ins tall and wore a dark coloured long sleeve shirt with a white print on the front. Police carried out a full area search and Scenes of Crime officers processed the location.

An investigation is underway by George Town CID and anyone with information on the robbery should contact the George Town CID on 949-4222 or DC Ronald Francis on 526-2578.

    The same old same old, one would think that as remote and out in the open as Andy’s is and with Law enforcementright next door at the Airport and the Drugs Task Force on Airport Road this would not happen without a quick response. Some people are talking about Cayman being destroy by the UK . We need to bring back the real police to do Police work and stop hiring all these overseas people .  We are not getting our money’s worth we have more Police than we ever had and less crimes are being prevented and solved. The only reason Estella’s Murder was solved is because the people along with her friends some who happened to be ex law enforcement got up and did something about it.

    Very "troubling and concerned" times in these Cayman Islands today. Perhaps the powers that were, should have concentrated on "firearms and drug smuggling" at our open borders in times gone by, instead of hassling motorists in road blocks for minor traffic violations !!!! 

    Almighty God forbid, you don’t want to hear or read next that one of these "audacious criminals" killed a front line police officer(s) or a tourist(s) with one of these firearms that previously came through our borders undetected. (Any innocent person for that matter)

    But as the old saying goes, "you reap what you sow" and so, he who gave his unconditional support behind this "unusual stance" taken in the past, then so deal safely and strategically with the wrath that has been unleashed by these out of control "thugs" now !!!
