Cops post reward on suspect

| 30/10/2009

(CNS): The police are offering a $5000 reward for information leading to the arrest or conviction of Dainian Cecil Henry on top of the Crimestoppers usual US$1000. With a CI$5,800 price tag on his head, the man who escaped from police custody is fast becoming Cayman’s “most wanted”.  The RCIPS is advising the public to report any sightings of this individual immediately to the police but strongly advise them not to approach him directly. Henry, who is wanted in connection with firearm’s offences, escaped from custody at George Town police station on Sunday  25 October.

Police said he had made his escape by pushing over a woman who was entering the station with a baby in her arms. Henry made off down Elgin avenue and police say they were unable to catch him.

Henry was also listed to appear in summary court this week to face charges of possession and intent to supply cocaine, for which he had pleaded not guilty. According to a report in the Caymanian Compass, despite Henry’s absence the trial still took place and a verdict is expected on 10 November.

To report sightings the public can call 949-4222. To leave information on an anonymous voicemail service call 949-7777 or call Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). Anyone calling Crime Stoppers remain anonymous, and is eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest.

    Why was this man still in Cayman?

    Under current laws if you are an expat accused and charged of a crime, your passport is confiscated until your day in court.

    That is why he was still here, the courts prevented him from leaving.

    This also makes things worse as usually the "suspect" losses his job and thus is stuck here with no financial means to support themselves.

    Now if you are a criminal then it will not trouble you at all to committ further crimes as a means to live while you wait.

    The current system gives a suspect no choice but crime to feed themselves, unless there are placed in remand.

    Please this article is not about Fabian. Yes he HAD charges against him and those were being dealt with accordingly. He’s gone now atleast respect him, if atleast in his death please. Thanks Ernie I agree these foreigners wouldn’t strive if they had no market and its not only foreigners who sell or commit crimes. Fabian wasn’t murdered by three foreigners I’ll assure you. So let’s all bandtogether to fight crime and not point fingers

      If you have real information about their identity (as opposed to speculation) then you should be speaking to the police to bring them the perpetrators to justice.

    innocent until proven guilty sounds fair, Bail for cocaine related charges, murder charges or any other serious ones is not fair at all with the rest of the society

    If or when this person is captured who ever is helping him escape capture needs to be charged with abetting and prosecuted.

    Too often criminals have the assistance of members of the community an in most places this is a crime.

    When people hide criminals they need to know they are breaking the law themselves and will face prison time.

    I certainly hope that the funds offered for  his capture are coming out of the salaries of those who released him and that the Police just wont come after the driving public to fund this.

    Rewards are in order but they should not have to come out of the pockets of the recipients.

    Hey all out of work Caymanians, $5800.00 can be yours!!!  I don’t know about anyone else,  but work is slow and I am sure as heck going to be looking out for him.

    I passed on info to his location and the police told me it was to broad an area to search. I told them on Monday morning he was in Grand Cayman. Do I get the reward?

    In all seriousness this person has to be taken off the streets. For those parents that know their kids hang around with these gang members, speak to them and try and get as much information as possible before this punk actually does kill, rob one of us or a police officer.


    Marl Road news is that this person was previously employed with Margaritaville, because of his court case, and being involved in the importation of cocaine etc, etc. he was terminated from his employment with Margaritaville.

    The reason that he is still here in the Cayman Islands is because of his court case of importation of cocaine etc, etc. While waiting for his court date to appear in court, he was involved with the firearms charge which no evidence was present at the time and was also put on bail for this as well. The police/ court is so F**Kingslack that they should have remanded him in HMP until such date. His recent arrest was that the police had evidence he was involved with firearms in the case of a possible robbery. How he made his way out which, he should have been locked behind a damn cell i don’t know. A week has almost passed and with these drug boys making late night runs to and from Jamaica he probably Jamaica already sit back relaxing watching the news and having a good laugh.

    Start looking in Jamaica form him fools.

      and, he probably will be back in Cayman in 6 month time when everybody has forgotten about this, and with no finger printing system, he will just slip by immigration and continue where he left off………

    13:56. POINT TAKEN, then  I would suggest that those good foreigners who are suffering for the bad ones,………..turn in the bad one then or go down with them.  Two wrongs turns cant make one right turn.

    Number one the officers who were negligent in allowing him to escape should be fired.   Big time investigation too, because John public does not know exactly how this went.  Una betta find him.

    Persons who have work permit for people should be held responsible for them in some ways.  For one they should have knowledge of where these people are living.  Employers should be forced to inform the immigration 2 months before the employee work permit expires, if another workpermit will be applied for, and whereabouts of the employee.   Slack slack slack.  I would suggest that immigration officers be filled from the police department.  There is a necessity of police training to effectively run the show.    Alot of comments are being made, some good some not so good, but I do hope those in authority are reading all of them and taking good advice.  Blessed

      Twyla: As a "good foreigner" who does not hang around cocaine dealers what can I do to "not go down with them"?  From my experience the best customers of drug dealers are mainly Caymanian – tehy can use with nothing to lose.

      • Anonymous says:

        Nothing to lose?! Anyone who uses drugs, especially cocaine has a lot to lose. Criminal conviction? Loss of liberty? Loss of ability to travel to some countries? Loss of family?

      You mean the same police department which allowed this criminal to escape, correct?   Good one.

      • Twyla Vargas says:

        CORRECT, 0013, The same police force.  I hope you really do not think it was a Caymanian who made him get away, and I know it was not the police responsible for him being here after having no job.

    He probably has landed in Jamaica by now at Black River, Rocky Point or Negril as a result of the many visiting Jamacian canoes that visit our quiet shores every week to land their "precious possessions" for us.

    DUH !!! 

    • Anonymous says:

      I hope you dont think that these boats that are bringing their stuff to our "precious islands" just get up and load their stuff onto a canoe and head out to these "precious islands" – well if you do; let me burst your bubbles; just like the saying behind every successful man – there is a great woman – same can be said, behind every illegal boat entering these islands there is a Caymanian involved.  Caymanians do take the flight to Jamaica, make all the arrangements from purchasing, and arrangement transportation (even participating in the stealing of innocent fishermen boat) and at times coming along with the canoe into these islands before returning to Jamaica and catching the flight back to Cayman.

      I am quite sure you know how this works as you mentioned all the major illegal port of entry.

    My questions precisely! Why is this man still in Cayman??? I think the police department, who I support wholeheartedly and the judiciary owe the public a detailed explanation!! It is a disgrace!

  12. Localeigner says:

    I would really like to know:

    1.  Why is he not in prison for the previous charges against him?

    2. How does he still have a work permit?

    I hear Caymanians always saying that foreigners shouldn’t be here and I agree in this case.  It’s foreigners like him that have no use whatsoever to our society that shouldn’t be here, yet he is here and it seems like all the good foreigners are being given a bad name.

      Until he is convicted he can neither be in prison or have his WP revoked; basically innocent until proven guilty. One has to question however the reason why he was not prosecuted for the previous offences and when government is going to realise that they must put more resources into immigration and the police to be able to more closely screen individuals who want to come here to work.

      • Anonymous says:

        This statement is not true.  Whether or not he had been convicted of a crime he would have been remanded at HMP Northward.  Central Police  Station is only for short term holding therefore it is beyond me what circumstances led to him being at the police station where he escaped from.

        • notdaceo says:

          Exactly.  He wasn’t only up for importation of cocaine, but also for resisting arrest, providing a wrong name, date of birth and address, as well as threatening violence; in my opinion, a definite flight risk.  Why would he not have been remanded???

          • Anonymous says:

            Why wasn’t a background check done on him before he was issued a permit.  I work in a bank and have to check all references for clients.  I can’t just accept a letter of reference, I have to call the organsation issuing the reference to verify.  Also, I just type in the name on Google to see if something comes up.  Surely Immigration and Police have access to databases from other countries.  They should also pick up the phone and check that a Police record is not a fake.  How many more wanted criminals do we have in Cayman from other countries?

      And I ask exactly the same questions about the murdered Fabian Reid who was similarly here on a work permit with charges outstanding against him at the time of his death.
