Cops charge one man in latest gas station heist

| 12/06/2012

(CNS): Police have charged a 31-year-old man in connection with a robbery at the Texaco Gas station in Eastern Avenue on 31 May. A policespokesperson said Tuesday that the man is expected to appear in court Wednesday to face charges of robbery, possession of an imitation firearm with intent to commit an offence and theft. Police did not say when the suspect was arrested but had appealed for more witnesses to the gas station heist on Friday. The man is accused of entering the gas station store around 10pm, stealing money from the cashier and then escaping on foot.

The hold-up was the fourth robbery in the space of one week last month, once again stirring up concerns in Grand Cayman about the impact of violent crime on local businesses.

Police are still looking for three masked men who held up the TV station’s customer service office in George Town in broad day light on 24 May and a man who held up a convenience store in Walkers Road at knife point on 30 May. Officers have, however, charged a 20-year-old man in connection with the Bodden Town Cashwiz robbery which occurred the same day. He was charged last week with robbery, possession of an imitation firearm with intent to commit an offence, affray and common assault.

Anyone with information can call detectives on 949-4222, the RCIPS tip-line. 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8744(TIPS)
