    Seems to me that common sense would tell you that the jewelry store must have insurance. If they didn’t then the owners are just plain and simply stupid. The one entry point that was not covered by iron bars or shutters was the point that was used – so Kirk Freeport, lesson learned.

    Easy to make a short list of suspects and I would suggest that you look at those persons from the community XXXXX

    CNS: I can pass a name onto the police but I can’t publish indications of who it is. Just add it to a comment and I’ll send it to them.

    Look at the young men who do not work but can afford to dress up and go out partying every night.

    Recently returned Brackers who have picked up bad habits in Grand……They began at West End and are working their way East; there have been a lot more burglaries than get into the news!

    This ain’t no Bracker; Brackers are in bed by 9pm every night of the week. How horrible for someone to do this sort of thing. Bring Joey and Brad back and I know them and Erbin and Customs and Immigration would start checking and monitoring who is coming over on the flights again. They would make it hard for criminals to thrive on the Brac.

    I got a feeling it is not someone from the Brac who did this. Brackers live and respect one another in the main and something like this is alien to them. This reeks of the smell of someone who is from a land west of the Brac where people have lost the values that Caymanians once stood for. This is so sad. There should be a sign posted in the airport saying that if you cannot respect a decent way of life, you should catch the next flight back to Grand Cayman; do not come to Cayman Brac and spoil the great quality life Brackers are known to enjoy.

      What cave have you been living in? There is a small group of young Brac men that would certainly do something like this.

      You enjoy a great quality of life because Grand Cayman subsidizes your dead economy, so a thank-you would be nice.

        So, you expect every family on the brac to just jump ship and come over to grand since our economy is dead? We’re part of the Cayman Islands too, like it or not.

    RCIP invisibility is the real crime here. The Sister Islands are at the mercy of the criminal community in the absence of effective law enforcement. It’s the “Wild East” over here.

    Occasional community meetings are not a substitute for constant and regular patrols.

    Get out on the beat RCIP!

      With a community of 1500 this should be as easy to investigate as eating a piece of johnny cake. If this was in the good ole smart USA this would be resolved in minutes.Come on please don’t let Cayman Brac go like Cayman with the crime. This place is too small not to be able to handle.
