Masked armed man robs West Bay store

| 10/04/2018 | 16 Comments

(CNS): Police are on the lookout for an armed robber, described as short with a dark complexion, following a stick-up at a local store in Batabano Plaza, West Bay, early Tuesday morning, less than a half mile from the local police station. As the store clerk was opening up the shop around 6:15 this morning, the robber, who was wearing a blue cloth over his face and brandishing a firearm, approached and demanded cash. He was said to have obtained an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing on foot towards the rear of the small shopping plaza.

No one was injured during the incident and no shots were fired. Police investigating the matter are asking anyone with information to contact West Bay CID at 649-777.

Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777, the Miami-based call centre of Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS), or online here.

    Poleeese need to Blitz 450pm are you for real ???? The immigration department merely needs to its job XXXXX. That’s what needs to happen along with those like Alden and the Deputy Governor who clearly now need to be sacked for it happening on their watch. Yes Cayman God Forbid we should hold those at the very top accountable for the terrible things going on this little island.

      Remove the incentive for them to bring boats over! You can keep it illegal but the huge demand is still there and people will continue to smoke it. Either allow drug lords to profit from the black market or allow it to be grown locally and generate tax revenue. Spoiler alert: numerous people grow it here on small scales already.

    Armed heists on a daily basis is our norm. If Govt would grow a pair and help reduce the ridiculous price gouging outrageous cost of living fkry it might help. Just sayin

      Why do you idiots always cry out a politicians name for every crime like they are responsible? Until they hire a few thousand more police to stand on every corner 24 hours a day, then be quiet. You always hear oh mac, oh alden. Why dont you drive around all night and day and call 911 for every person that looks suspicious. Until then just pray.

      Anonymous 6:26 pm , Mac is not the speaker for West bay , he’s is speaker for the Premier Government . I think that Mac believes that it’s more important for him to be part of Alden than part of the overall Islands at this time before next election . He doesn’t want to step on the Governor toes since he said that the crime needs to addressed and that the Governor will take care of the crime issue .
      I hope that people of West bay has their eyes open , and is watching his actions .
