Eastern cops nab another burglar

| 04/09/2009

(CNS): A teenager has been charged with burglary and other offences this week following a spate of break-ins in the eastern districts. Roland Welcome, 19, who appeared in court facing charges of burglary, handling stolen goods, failing to provide a urine specimen and various traffic offences has been remanded in custody detectives from the eastern districts said on Thursday. These charges come in the wake of charges laid against another teenager last week for similar offences which occurred in the eastern part of Grand Cayman.

Police said that the RCIPS is working hard to tackle burglaries, which includes having burglary teams in operation across the Island, holding regular road checks to disrupt criminal’s movements on the road and targeting known offenders.

Police also reminded residents to play their part in addressing property crime by ensuring their homes and property are secure and by recording the serial numbers of electronic and high value goods.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling Crime Stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.

    Surname Welcome eh? Damn! Yet another "furrina"! Oops! I forgot. It’s a Caymanian name-like just about all the others who have been arrested recently. But still the posters go on about these "furrin" influences.

    Grow up Cayman.

    Thank you RCIP for arresting him, however you said that we have to play our part by locking our doors and windows. 

    The criminals has no right to enter my place, opened or locked and they better don’t think of entering my home or my business place.

    Like I said, parents teach your children that if you work hard everthing is possible but if you don’t you risk going to prison or entering the wrong place you may loose a hand.

    I worked hard and it paid off for me, just do the right thing at all times.  It always pay off.

    Well done to the RCIPS XXXXXX

    It’s a shame they cannot give community service whereby in a supervised environment the offenders pay back the victims of their crimes by running chores, cleaning, washing cars etc. Some of these workshy layabouts would think twice if they got caught and were forced to work!

    Since when is failing to provide a urine sample a chargable offense?

      It is and has alwyas been an offense to refuse to provide a specimen, BUT only in connection with a Traffic or Drug related offense.  In other words, you have to have been arrested on reasonable suspicion of some supporting offense to request the speciment of unine…a police officer cannot arbitrarily request a specimen of urine for no reason and then charge a person when they refuse to provide it.  For furthur referenece, you can check the Traffic Law in relation the offense of DWI or the Misuse of Drugs Law….
