tortuga7.jpg(CNS) Updated: Police are currently seeking witnesses to an armed robbery which took place in broad daylight on Saturday morning. An RCIPS spokesperson said that at around 10:14 officers were called to the Tortuga Liquor Store on North Sound Road, George Town, where the daylight heist took place and where an undisclosed quantity of cash was stolen. Police said that no shots were fired and no one was injured in the incident. The perpetrator, who was reportedly armed with a handgun, was described as having dark skin, a slim build and around 6'2" to 6'3" tall, wearing a dark coloured jacket with a hoodie, blue jeans and dark coloured shoes.

According to the police report, the man approached an employee as the person was arriving at the store, pointed what appeared to be a small firearm at him and demanded cash. When uniform officers and detectives responded to the scene, the perpetrator had already made his escape.

The matter is under investigation by the Drugs and Serious Crime Task Force. Police are appealing to anyone who was in the area of the Tortuga Liquor Store, North Sound Road, George Town around the time of the incident to contact the George Town Police Station at 949-4222, the RCIPS Tip-line 949-7777 or Cayman Crime Stoppers on 800-8477(TIPS).

    Why is it the police never ever release any photos to the public. It seems that it would be very beneficial to release the photos we can actually help identify these cowards.

      umm perhaps, because in their haste to get away, the robbers didn't take the time to pose for any??
