Police still looking for home invaders

| 21/06/2017 | 20 Comments

(CNS): Despite arresting three men, including a teenager, in the wake of a violent home invasion in Patrick’s Island early Saturday morning, police are appealing for more information after bailing those suspects. As the probe continues into the aggravated burglary, in which a man and a woman were tied up with duct tape, threatened at gunpoint and assaulted with a hammer, no charges have yet been made. 

The incident happened at around 4:30am on 17 June, when three men, two armed with guns and one with a hammer, broke into the George Town home and tied up the couple before making off with cash, jewellery and other possessions. Although the male resident was assaulted during the incident, the couple escaped serious injuries. After the intruders left, one of the victims was able to free themselves and raise the alarm.

The investigators working the case are again appealing to anyone who has any information that may be relevant to contact Detective Inspector Joseph Wright, who is heading the enquiry, at 936-8169.

They can also contact the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777 or the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 800-TIPS (8477) to remain anonymous.

    We need EDUCATED, HONEST AND TRUSTWORTHY police and back ups THAT ARE made up of Caymanians!!!!. Its plain to see that these criminals are way ahead. As usual the real criminals are long gone in the opposite direction, while the distraction is staged, this has happen before and the police pretend/fumble, making it look like they are after the criminals – all a part of this corruption. THINKING OUT SIDE OF THE BOX,

      If not Caymanians, then British. This is a British territory!!! Caymanians need to be woken, and realize that their country is on the path to disaster.

      Hiring from 3rd world countries is a bad idea. They aren’t here to keep Cayman safe. If crime fighting was their passion, they would have stayed where they were and deal with the crime there. Here for the money, nothing else!!

        This person as no clue what she is talking about. Those British officers are referring to, mojerity of them could not make they were, and run come British islands. They could not solved a crime if it was save their life. Now that they are here they take the island as a hotel vacation gateway. Trust me any crime being solved in Cayman islands is not by the British. Trust me, from some who have work for years in rcips. But what can we do! We are salve to our English masters.. here is how it’s setup.. Caymanian and ( third world officers) will do the work and our English masters will go diving. When he crime is solved, our English put on there nice white shirts and pips and lurel and stand before camera..tell the general public ” my officers have been working diligently on solving this case” British officers my foot..

          You ask what you can do. How about starting with an English course of basic grammar and spelling. You know like 10 year olds are taught. Maybe then you could take a statement and put a file together.

            For goodness sake, a couple of typos and anyone who can write is getting his or her underpants and knickers in a twist. Please, I appeal to you, let’s all calm down and keep focused on the job of successfully caging these proto-humans asap.Thank you.

              I used to rail against grammar police too…but there is no doubt, without an education your words and thoughts cease to have meaning in the eyes of the public. The truth is if you don’t care about yourself, how you express your thoughts or your words, why should the reader?

            Agreed. But then again, that is the standard of grammar in some Caribbean countries.

          You really need to re educate yourself 2.32pm and learn to speak the Queens English! That stupid statement you just made is disgraceful from beginning to end. You certainly haven’t passed any English exam that’s for sure! Please get a co-worker to write any future Police statements or you will be a laughing stock. Bless you.

    Kidnappers are essentially terrorists. Come on new and renewed politicians get off your asses and do something (and don’t you dare blame the Governor). This is our country, let’s take it back.

      Agreed they are 100% terrorists! And what does the US of A do with terrorist? They send them to Guantanamo Bay and let them experience waterboarding and such. Please can we give our terrorists the same treatment?
