Three escaped Cubans arrested for burglary

| 26/11/2013

(CNS): Three Cuban migrants who landed in Cayman Brac yesterday morning after the vessel in which they were travelling capsized have been arrested on suspicion of burglary. Although all 28 migrants were supposedly taken into immigration custody after the boat overturned, officials confirm that three of the migrants did escape. Government has not yet stated the gender of this latest group of migrants but the three people arrested for the burglary were men. Police said a Brac home in South Side Road East was broken into around 11am on Monday 25 November. At around 2:30pm, following police enquiries, three Cuban migrants were found hiding in a bush area near to the crime scene by both police and customs officers.

The men were arrested on suspicion of burglary and property, which was identified as having been stolen from the house, was recovered.

Police said that the Cubans were expected to be transferred into the custody of immigration officials and transported to Grand Cayman last night.

    Great that the three were quickly found but some how I believe them police are taking too much credit! I am pretty sure the correct press release should have said after a search of the bush the three were found and arrested by customs officers, after all when I drove past the area it was only customs officers i saw search houses and bush.  I mean great job no matter who is doing their job but give credit to where credit is due…
