(CMR) Last night, 10 November, a 43-year-old man was arrested in a Honda Fit matching the description of a vehicle linked to recent armed robberies. Police said the car was carrying plates not registered to the vehicle – a common practice amongst criminals.
The vehicle had also previously been reported stolen in September 2023.
The RCIPS said that since the recent spate of armed robberies, police have been undertaking targeted operations focused on locating and apprehending those involved and suppressing further robberies.
In this operation, the vehicle was followed and stopped by police units, including the Firearms Response Unit, on Rock Hole Road, George Town. The man from George Town was also arrested for traffic offenses.
The RCIPS said the community can expect to see increased police presence on the roads, including vehicle check points as efforts continue to locate and apprehend those involved in recent incidents of serious crime on Grand Cayman.
The RCIPS further stated that it appreciates the community's support as we work together to keep the Cayman Islands safe.
