No bombs found after threats

| 14/12/2013

(CNS): Police have confirmed that there were bomb threats at both the Ritz Carlton, Grand Cayman and Caribbean Club this afternoon. Both resorts were searched but nothing suspicious was discovered, the RCIPS reported Saturday evening. At 4:15pm police, fire and other emergency personnel responded to the bomb threats at both locations. Traffic diversions and other precautionary measures were put in place and the two resorts were searched. It is not clear if the incident has yet been officially declared a hoax, like all previous bomb threats on Grand Cayman. Section 206 of the penal Code (2010 Revision) states that a “Bomb Hoax” is an offence, and on conviction a person can be sentenced up to ten years imprisonment and a fine of ten thousand dollars.

    What a waste of time and resources over something that could merely be a hoax

      Yes, rocket scientist. Something that "could" be a hoax. I guess you don't really know until you evacuate the building and look.

    The perpetrator must be hunted down and sent to Northward for a good few years.

    Anybody thought of what would they do if there was a bomb. It'll go something like this!

    OK guys! We've confirmed that "there is a bomb" in the hotel, so lets clear the building and wait till it goes off. Then the fire department will take over.

    Has anyone ever anywhere actually planted a bomb and then call it in?  Why would someone go through the trouble and then phone it in?    Bomb hoaxes should all be ignored.

      happened all the time in Northern Ireland.  Idea is to ensure that the emergency servces are there when it goes off. Aslo means that you have to take all threats seriously – if you only have one bomb, can still cause huge amounts of disrution with other threats.  So ignoring a boamb threat basically not a good idea.

        Yes it is very common that bombs are called in. The idea is that people are able to get out of the way while infrastucture is taken down. Major disruption is the aim, not murder.

      Yes. They were called the IRA. 

    • Kadafe says:

      Real terrorists want to be recognized and their cause known. They want to take credit for their deeds and will identify themselves readily. So in short yes real booms are called in. And no you should not ignore bomb threats. That's when they go boom!

      You quite clearly haven't had to grow up with terrorism or possibly travelled much.

      The idiots that do this are so disruptive, I hope they catch whoever it was and throw them in Northward for a long time.


      I was at Beach Suites yesterday when this all kicked off, think about the consequences:

      1. Many police, ambulances, and fire brigade all on their toes, the latter two hanging around just in case. The police, bravely having to search room by room not knowing if the next door they open will be their last. The cost of all that and the helicopter in the air for 2 hours? As well as the human factor. No normal person would want the fear of their being a real issue..someone will have a heart attack one day. And why? Because some idiot likes to watch police or divert their attention?

      2. Road closure, nearly every restaurant and bar around the Beach suites area and I am guessing up as far as the Westin was deserted as no one could get through. That directly affects the kitchens, the servers and their ability to earn money with Christmas coming. It got busier later, but not as busy as a normal saturday. What kind of schmuck does that to other people?

      3. This is now in the public domain, what will potential visitors think of Cayman? Potential loss of torusim revenue to Cayman? Loss of jobs as a result?


      I hope if they catch this person(s) that they count up the entire economic cost and fine the idiot the twice that amount. Or if they cant pay, ten years jail time. Or both.

      lol.  And just to know that some Employers would expect their Employees to come in despite the bomb threat.  I won't be surprise you find these indifferent money pricks in the hotel industry.
