Cops nab suspect booze burglar but two more flee

| 05/07/2013

548526_531569110190212_731926111_n.jpg(CNS): The RCIPS is currently investigating a burglary at the Cabana restaurant and bar on the waterfront in George Town following a break-in at 2:53 this morning, when thieves attempted to steal a significant haul of booze. A police spokesperson said a report was made to the 911 emergency centre when the burglary was in progress at the location, which was formerly Hammer Heads. Police units responded within minutes, the spokesperson stated, and on the officers' arrival, three suspects fled. The police gave chase, however, and one suspect was arrested in connection with the burglary.

Despite the arrest, the two other men believed to be involved were able to escape from the officers. Most of the property, including a large quantity of alcohol, as well as gloves and a mask, were recovered near the scene and the matter is now under investigation by George Town CID. 

Anyone with information about this or any other crime is asked to call 949-7777 or the confidential Crimestoppers line 800 TIPS.

    Yeah. While it is great they arrived in time to stop the crime, to do this one out of countless crimes is not good odds or a signature of things returning to normal. You can high five all you want but please do not delude yourself into thinking they are doing a average job of Enforcement……lip service maybe.

    8.42  I think society is divided into two types of people,  those who throw their garbage down  for somebody else to pick up,  and those who take responsibility for their trash as a matter of course. It's the acid test, because a principled person would no more think of littering the roadsides or our beautiful beaches, than pi**ing on their own carpet at home. It wouldn't even enter their head to do so.

    Good job RCIP.  I remember when we could shop and put our groceries on the back seat with our windows down and go to another shop and never worry whether our groceries would be there when we got back.  The reason was that kids were taught principles from early.  The ten commandments were the basis of those principles.  And we wonder what is happening these days where a growing number of younf people don't have any respect for themselves or anyone else and their property?  It's simply because they were never taught any principles, or the ten commandments when they were young; probably their parents were taught it either and so they are mimicing their parents. It sure is sad.  And then many people blame the police for what is clearly a societal problem.  Perhaps now that children are starting school at an earlier age, those at risk kids can be given extra attention and classes in principles for good characters so that Cayman can once more return to being a law abiding society.

      Yes, well done RCIP. It used to be that no one would attempt these things because the chances were they would get caught. With the overall improvement in the police success rate we may be moving back in that direction. Keep up the good work RCIP.
