Armed masked men invade Prospect home

| 01/02/2018 | 57 Comments

(CNS): Two masked men armed with a knife and a crow bar entered a home on Prospect Point Road, George Town, at around 9:30pm last night and demanded cash. In an RCIPS release, police said that the men demanded money. No one was hurt but the robbers made off with an undisclosed quantity of cash and personal items. The suspects are both described as being about 5’10”-5’11” in height and were wearing full masks and gloves.

Police who responded to the scene of the aggravated burglary made checks in the area but did not locate anyone matching the descriptions given.

This incident is being investigated by officers from George Town CID and police are appealing for anyone who may have any relevant information to call the George Town Police Station at 949-4222.  Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777, the Miami-based call centre Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS), or online here.

    Wow Cannot believe they want $40,000 dollar police dogs now because if you think trained police dogs are cheap. I guess add in Drone or two for a complete package add in operators and container another 10 million dollars. `No worries Alden da Stooge McLaughlin and his unity cabal will approve and sign anything the FCO tells them to sign. We have literally gone to dogs now on this island.

    Our small seven mile beach complex hadn’t had a break-in for three decades, yet experienced two separate invasions in just a week over the holidays – and they were undeterred by complex security.

      Because they know that security guards don’t carry guns, and they do!

      They know they have the advantage; they are only getting smarter out there.

    • 11:15 I am sorry to say that it is far worse than this in the SMB Corridor as condo owners don’t want to talk about all the break ins and real estate people are quiet too. The reason is simple, they don’t want the value of their real estate to drop. Owners of condos and real estate people need to start speaking out before it is too late.

    I will say it like I told a News Media a few day ago . If you don’t condem the criminal behavior and you protect the criminal , then I have to believe that you are just like them.
    Don’t be scared of a bully or a criminal because the next one see it and your problems grows from there .

      Is this the wake boarders, the surf boarders, the paddle boarders, or some other kind? The screening at Immigration is already fairly high, if we make it higher I’m not sure how we would see over it.

    I always like details so I can either worry, make some security changes, or discount it as best I can. Was this a targeted attack for a large sum of money, because I rarely carry more than $50 and can’t think that someone would go to all that trouble for it. Did they force the door to get in (with the crowbar) or was the door unlocked, or opened? Security cameras? On foot, bike or car? What personal items, just in case they are trying to pawn them, or sell them?

        We keep selling Cayman to the international arena like we have so much to offer. Crime is rising every single day here…..more criminals are being groomed by their predecessors.

        We have serious socio-economical issues here and the people in power are only ignoring them!

    With only 10 Traffic Unit officers out of 407 payrolled employees, and a RCIPS community response time measured in half hour increments, the Commissioner continues their useless two-pronged absentee enforcement strategy, of: empty town-halls and “disappointed” social media posts to their 9 followers. While doing so, offering no accountability for their >$30mln per year budget allocation. News has spread that Cayman is essentially an unprotected target.

        You cannot hold one politician responsible for the status grants. You need to open your damn eyes and see that it was a COLLECTIVE effort of all the politicians at the time, but only one was brave enough to put his face to it!

        And seeds of destruction? If Cayman youth didn’t DESIRE destructive cultural ways they would not be where there are today. Parents let their children run wild in society and do not teach them any respect for people or their belongings.

        Too much children breeding! Too much punks who will never be fit to be fathers, planting their undesirable seeds into these stupid little young girls who are also not fit to be mothers! You wonder why we have such a mess?

        It’s not just Cayman, look at the world. People have lost their damn senses!

        Nobody cares about values, morals or scruples; people want money, sex and power!

        And they will stop at nothing to get what they want!

    Yes those believing that the great white hope have come here to save us .I feel truly sorry for you Guard dogs armed security and walled compounds.This is the future Cayman if we don’t stop this immigration work permit farce and law enforcement employment scheme we keep funding. Time to hold the RCIPS accountable for crime and stop importing more problems situations from overseas. 60,000 people 5 police stations 300 police from overseas do the math Cayman. Time to start looking at other alternatives to resolve this crime problem.

    Why don’t we band together and help the authorities fight crime then? Or is that too much to ask? Whenever there are reports of heinous crimes many get up in arms and rant until there’s a lull in the news cycle. Yet when faced with the opportunity to truly make a difference cower and point fingers. Oh, “It’s the fault of the Police and similar authirities, politicians and parenting”… what difference does it make if were not willing to work towards combating the problem? Join one of the uniformed divisions of our law enforcement, start or get involved in a neighborhood watch or don’t be too much of a coward to identify criminals! We complain to each other all the time, if we could only complain together instead! Maybe, maybe together we just may effect some change.

      …Because we are paying >$30mln a year for a competent approach from career crime-fighters. Apparently the sum of their expertise leads them to conclude we need two Caymanian foot-patrollers tethered to vulnerable and expensive imported drug dogs. That’ll surely fix this, just you wait.

      Oh Please Silas give it a rest with your fictional cum bye ya moment these over paid foreign interlopers are here to fleece our islands little economy. Whilst they help themselves and there fellow countrymen in a bias melee of crime here. It simply is not in there or there respective countries best interest to reduce or solve crime here and the truth is they dont really care. You are right about one thing complaining to these uniform carriers do not make sense. Stop this foolishness looking to others to resolve our problems. NO more foreign police Alden.

    I think that the Government can’t see or don’t want to know what is happening to the Islands. Their foresight for doing whatever is essential to be done is very minimal .

    One example of look at the expansion of the Airport . The Government knew that Airport is being made bigger, but they didn’t see that everything involved with Airport had to get bigger too . This is what caused the big mess on Saturday with the long line wait for the Passengers, no additional Custom Officers and Immigration Officers and baggage handlers. I think that the Officials knew about all the flights scheduled that arrived last Saturday from months ago , but they didn’t make no preparations to accommodate them or the Passengers.

    But the crime issues , the Government didn’t see or plan for the explosion of crime when they were growing the population . Now it’s going to be a bigger problem to handle and get it back in control.

    It’s a given now that the Governor, police and MLA’s will not likely do much to ensure our safety.

    My thoughts are now (as much as I don’t really like admitting it) I need to find a way to attain, legally, a firearm to protect my family, myself and my property.

    This island is getting from bad to worse. I’m afraid it’s on the slippery slope now and at the point of no return. It’s not safe for a vacation let alone to reside in anymore. Such a waste of a paradise island. ?It’s not all down to unsavoury immigrants. There’s a lot of homegrown criminals carrying out this type of crime. It’s a really difficult situation for RCIPS their hands are tied. Only so much one can do, as if convicted the penalties don’t fit the crime or seem a deterrent for these people. The courts need to take away these criminals liberty for a very long time. They are laughing at this Judicial system, it’s a joke!!
    This Government really needs to sort out this major problem. The Child Protection team need to up their game to sort out the massive child abuse. Social Services need to step in and do their part in directing these children on the right path before they become delinquents. These children go off the rails before becoming the criminals they end up to be. It needs to be nipped in the bud in the early years. There will always be crime wherever you live but it’s getting off the scale now on this island.
    There should be programmes in place for school leavers. Apprenticeships with Construction firms. In fact, why isn’t there a Construction College like in the U.K.?
    May God help you Cayman

      I truly don’t believe the Government really cares. As long as they have a surplus from work permits in their budget, their hefty salaries, benefits and pensions are paid. Why would they have to pass legislations to protect the innocent? That would mean work! Remember it’s not their fault, it’s the Governor’s responsibility for crime to be placed under control. That the goverment’s story and they sticking to it.

      Byrne thinks the answer is adding two foot-based Caymanian beat officers tethered to drug dogs (with more training than their handlers). There are no plans afoot to reduce police response times from half hour (or longer) intervals, to what they should be: 3 minutes or less. There should be visible officers at every mile marker writing tickets while waiting for dispatch to crimes in progress. That’s how we fix this.

      Over half dozen robberies, almost the same for the shootings this year alone, but our government assures us that everything is peachy as crime gets worst. The only thing progressively improving under the Premier Alden Mclaughlin’s unity government is criminal activity. The peoples well being is not the governments responsibility. Crime is what pays on this little island, and the government knows this all the while capitilizing on it.

        That’s not the point. I’m sure the Police and Government in other places who have had crime sprees mirroring ours have done (or tried) or at least said something to shut this shit down by now. We need to have a zero tolerance for this nonsense. Enough is enough. They have been rampant for far too long.

        I’ll tell you this, I feel a lot safer in certain places in Jamaica because the Police is constantly on the beat, they make their presence known, you na frighten them. They frighten you!!! They will make an example out of you. Not the other way around. That’s where Cayman fckd up (and keep on fckn up)!
