LC robbery suspects bailed

| 02/12/2013

(CNS): The police have released on bail the five suspects who were aprehended last week following a chase on the high seas. The five local men were arrested on suspicion of robbery following an armed hold-up at the mini-mart in Blossom Village, Little Cayman, last Tuesday afternoon, but police have let the men go as the investigation continues. The suspects were all rounded up off the coast of East End following a joint operation by the Marine and Air Unit after they were thought to have fled from the crime scene on a canoe. Police have confirmed that the store's cash pan was stolen but no other details have been revealed about what was taken in what appears to have been an elaborate robbery.

The robbery on the smallest of the Cayman Islands came as a shock across the country and Chief Inspector Frank Owens, the senior RCIPS officer on the Sister Islands, will be hosting a meeting this Wednesday evening on Little Cayman (see details here), as residents come to terms with the armed robbery.
