Cops renew appeal over restaurant armed robbery

| 07/10/2010

(CNS): The police issued another appeal on Thursday morning for witnesses to come forward who could have information regarding an armed robbery at the Alfresco restaurant in West Bay one week ago, on Thursday 30 September at a little after 8pm in the evening. Detectives investigating the case said no further witnesses have come forward since they made the first request. The restaurant was targetted by two masked men brandishing what appeared to be firearms as they entered the premises. They threatened both staff and customers before making off with a sum of cash. Although no shots were fired and no-one was injured the staff members and customers involved were left shaken by the ordeal. (Photo Dennie Warren Jr)

Both suspects are described as being around 5’10” in height and of slim build. One had a fair complexion and was wearing jeans, the other a dark complexion and dark pants. Both had shirts covering their faces.
Detective Constable Orville Grant of West Bay CID said it was a frightening experience for the staff and customers. “Thankfully no-one was injured. The robbers were in and out in just a few minutes but despite our previous appeals no further witnesses have come forward,” he explained.
“The restaurant is positioned at a busy intersection and today I’m appealing for anyone who may have been in the area around 800pm on Thursday to cast their minds back. Did you see anyone answering the description hanging about outside the premises, or did you see anyone running away? If so, please call West Bay police station as the information you hold could significantly help our enquiry,” Grant asked.
Anyone with any information about this crime should call West Bay police station on 949-3999
or the confidential Crime Stoppers number 800-8477(TIPS).

    In connection with the Fidelity robbery, it is strange that no pictures taken from the cameras were published.  Someone out there could possibly have identified the robbers.  And the car – a picture would also have helped!!!!

      Does Fidelity have ATM machines?  I know, I know, I watch too many cop shows (don’t most of us in Cayman), but if they do and some of the technology on the shows are right then they take pictures at regular intervals.  If they do then why have the police not released any pictures?
