Masked men rob gas station

| 25/11/2013

(CNS): Police are currently investigating the latest robbery to occur on Grand Cayman following an early morning hold-up at a gas station on Saturday. According to an RCIPS spokesperson, the 911 Emergency Centre received a report of a robbery at around 4:40am on 23 November at the West Bay Road Esso Service Station. Witnesses said that two men entered the store wearing ‘hoodies’ and with their faces covered with masks. One of the suspects was armed with what appeared to be a firearm. The robbers held up the employees in the gas station and stole an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing the scene on foot. Police said that no shots were fired and no injuries were reported.

The spokesperson said that officers responded to the scene and the matter is now under investigation by the Serious Crime Task Force. Anyone who has any information should contact 949-7777 or 800-8477 (TIPS).

    I have said this before-that a gas station clerk's job is more dangerous than of a police officer. Praise them for their courage every time you deal with them.

    Results of the 2003 mass status grants, chickens coming home to rooste.  Very sad indeed, now is the time to enfore the gun law in its entirety just do whatever is necessary to root out this type of behaviour that was virtually unheard of 10 years ago , it has seemly now become common place.  Stamp it out NOW!

      I think the chickens tend to roost much earlier than this robbery took place.  So don't blame the chickens.  The ching chings on the other hand . . .

    When the legislators of this beautiful country see fit to allow us to arm ourselves, then robberies and burglaries will draw down.    Not until that time will things change.  Law-abiding citizens are not allowed the tools to protect their families or loved ones, and those we entrust with those enforcements cannot wage war against elusive criminals;   the criminals do not care about laws and therefore will always posess a higher order of tools.    This has always been the case throughout history.   If thugs choose to invade my home, I cannot anticipate their intent, nor their moral compass.   I must assume they mean to do us harm, having invaded uninvited — an extremely aggressive act.   If that happens, I will probably be shot defending my family with a machette — one of the few tools still allowed us.   My parents had firearms.   They, being law-abiding citizens, turned them in.   They regret their trust in the government's ability to protect them.   So do I.   We need to stand up for our rights, and the ability to protect oneself is written in the message of ages.   It's history.

    When is this stupidness going to stop???  I go to that station all the time and sometimes that early in the morning too.  These ignorant people have to be taught a lesson. If we can't use any protectin for ourselves and corporal punishment is banned let's see what we can do next. Maybe pack um up and send um off to the Mother who makes all the rules!!! What exactly is human rights???

      Esso West Bay Road is actually in George Town

        West Bay road is not GT, GT begins closer to the road next to Queens Court (just above)

        • Savannah Resident says:

          What are you talking about?  GT ends at the Governor's house.  

          • Diogenes says:

            According to Lands and Survey it ends at the Ritz Carlton  (West bay side of the property)

      You locals have this argument every time there is crime. West Bay? George town? East End? You know….as a tourist…..I say…who really cares. All I see is the headline and the article on crime.  I travel all over the island when I holiday down there. I love all parts of the island and I am concerned that crime is targeting the entire island. Forget where it is happened and figure out how it can be stopped.

      Oh, and before you jump all over me, YES, crime happens where I work in major abundance, but that is why I love to escape and it is also the reason I used to find Cayman islands a place where I could do just that! Now, I still visit, but keep an "open eye to my surroundings".
