Nightly robberies continue

| 03/10/2013

(CNS) Updated 12:05pm Wednesday: The RCIPS arrested two men in connection with last night’s robbery at Domino’s Pizza in Midtown Plaza within an hour of the robbery taking place. The suspects, aged 28 and 29, were arrested on suspicion of robbery following an operation in the George Town area and remain in police custody whilst enquiries continue. Domino’s was robbed on Wednesday night just 24 hours after a gas station was targeted by armed robbers in the industrial area and the fifth robbery in as many days. The armed masked men entered the business at around 10:30pm carrying what were believed to be handguns, held up the occupants and fled with their ill-gotten gains. Police said that no shots were fired and no injuries were reported.

Anyone with information to share on this or any other crime is urged to call 949-7777 or 800 TIPS to remain anonymous.

    To rob Dominoes so close to the police headquarters when it is considered a secured building in that you have to be buzzed in, this needs a lot of investigation.  This is the last straw these criminals are becoming extremely dangerous and if it continues it will only be a matter of time before someone is seriously injuried or worst murdered.  All fora few dollars in most instances less than what most of these low lives can work for in a month if they would go to work for a month and do an honest days work for their pay. I will assure these punks that if I am into a place that they rob it will be one of those not today Bo Bo moments.

    I think it would really help if there is a reward for information that will lead to a criminal conviction. The RCIPS could allocate a portion of their budget for this purpose.

    The mentality of people who knows the people that are committing these crimes is there is nothing in it for me to snitch. If you give $$$ then people will come forward for hopes of getting paid for their information.

    Seems unethical but It will work.

    Did they speak with Caymanian accents? I only ask because another news story CNS posted mentioned that the suspects spoke with Caymanian accents, so just wondering.

    They seem to have eased off the homeowners, must be beause they don't know who is a licenced gun owner. Now they are back at attacking businesses, some of whom make little to no money.

    For most cases it is bad parenting that has resulted in these thugs ruining our islands. They have no conscience, no remorse for what they do, no compassion, they are without a doubt ANIMALS. We are stuck in between a rock and a hard place with human rights and being a british dependant territory. Home owners, I encourage you to protect your own, your home and your valuables which YOU worked so hard for.

    I don't have time to blame the RCIPS or the government as far as I am concerned to each his own. It is time now for people to take responsibility for their actions, parents who neglect their own what do you expect? Society has no place for thugs, it usually washes you 6 feet under or pays for your boarding at HMP.

      A long term crime prevention strategy would be permit abortions.  At the moment only the rich middle class girls have the right to choose.

    How many police officers were on duty last night at 10:30pm?

    How many active patrols were taking place with vehicles driving between businesses likely to be targeted, did this include officers getting out of their cars and going in to these business to talk to those working.

    Such tactics I feel would go someway to reassure people, especially the workforce of retail outlets, that the police care and that something is being done.

    Every time there is a mini crime spree, out comes some article about the success of the CCTV.  Clearly the CCTV isn't working to stop robberies, perhaps some visible policing would?

      Has anybody heard anything from Baines recently? Is he still breathing? I am sure somebody is still collecting his pay check!

      i kind of agree but what is an unarmed police officer goinng to do, stand there with his flash light, batton and hand cuffs.

      I never thought i would think we as caymanians would need forearms at home and have fought it for years but now i beleive the law should change, if you have no record and are a good citizen (hey take my finger prints and keep them on file) we should be allowed to protect our property and family.

      These crimes are getting our of hand and we cant just blame the police it is now indrenched into our youth, mark my words, in the next year we will have several more robberies and 2 or three murders reflecting from this.

      Once again the parents family members know their kids are doing this but will no except that their family memebers are bad. this has to change, turn them in before i or someone else chop off their head when breaking into my place.

    It's quite simple, there's no significant deterrent  to effectively stem the increasing awareness of  playing to the better percentage gains of robbery/crime. One would think that personal moral and ethical values would  lead one away from such activity but as has become increasing noticeble such integrity seems to be on the decline.

    Not many immediate alternatives left, arm the police and also consideration to security guards after apropriate checks and training. Once that stop check becomes effective invest into the understanding of the widespread sociological problems fueling the multiplying criminal crusades.

    Maybe we should start taking turns guessing where the robbers will strike next and depending on the # of votes the Police can stake out @ our top picks.

    Stuck up mans new motto ' Fu&^% the police' why would they be scared of them anyway when they are better armed than the RCIPS Officers. I'd guess it took them long enough to arrive there to give the bad guys plenty of time to get away.

    What A Sad

    State of affairs here in our little Island. Don’t the Police patrol, don’t the Police conduct observations. Yet our premier still stand behind Baines as the man for the job. It is not rocket science on what has occurred here it is simply. Drugs has destroyed our youth and now that they can’t support the habit they expect to rob persons and businesses alike. Yet the commissioner of Police disband ant the drugs task force and expect to get results. Just look around and it is clear to see that the criminals have no respect for the Police as all of them run around with there spliff in public with no fear. Baines your 15mins is up, get with the program.

    This is just a bunch of expats that are trying to get thier last hiest before the rollover takes place and they have to leave. We will finally have trustworthy hard working caymans taking thier place and no more crime.

      Spoken like a FOOL!!! I am Caymanian and so i beg you please dont post comments like these that makes us look are illiterate people. Alot of these robberies are being done by our own Caymanians!!! our young people who some of us as parents have failed, some of whom the education system has failed and some who the communities they lived have failed.


      The time were we sit silent knowing who are the persons committing these crimes and because they are our relatives or friends we turn a blind eye and act like we dont know MUST STOP!!! we need to speak up about what we know that is the only way things will improve if we as a people become united against crime even if it is committed by our own.

      You don't really believe it's expats.  If you do, pull your head out of the sand.  Even the victims confirm Caymanian accents to identify most of the robbers.  Teach your kids some real values, instead of them growing up with such a sense of entitlement that they'll go out and take what's not theirs.
