Scene of the robbery (from social media)

(CNS): The police are investigating an armed robbery at the Reflections Food 4 Less store near the Airport Centre on Maclendon Drive, George Town, in the early hours of Saturday morning. Police say that around 1:50am a man entered the shop brandishing a firearm and demanded cash from the staff.

The robber then fled the location on foot with an undisclosed sum of money. The suspect was wearing a striped shirt and jeans and a hat covering his face. No one was physically injured during the incident,

The police are urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident or knows anything about it to contact George Town CID at 949-4222.

Anonymous tips can be provided directly to the RCIPS via the Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777
or via the RCIPS website.

CNS: An earlier version of this article stated that the robbery took place at Liquor 4 Less. Although the police reported that the robbery took place at a liquor store, a spokesperson from Reflections has told CNS that it happened at Reflections Food 4 Less, which is open 24/7, and not Liquor 4 Less, which closes at 10pm. The article was updated accordingly.

    Anyone who has been raised here and has had a chance to view the video on another media house, can clearly hear this is a Caymanian miserably failing to put on a Jamaican accent speaking patois. Jamaicans are some of the most hardworking and honest people I have known but unfortunately the ones who are menaces to society paint the picture that they are all bad. These wannabe Caymanian gangsters on our islands are trying so desperately be the bad apple Jamaicans. This country is gone to the dogs now lmao.

    They get away with it all the time here. There is no forward thinking from ignorant thieves that if they continue to steal what incentive will people have to continue producing the service or goods?

    The videos in the US coming out now are showing that people are tired of working hard, following the rules while people like this rob us of our hard work. Storeowners are being forced to defend themselves because the criminals are so emboldened but no consequences. Just the other day a store owner was going to allow robbers to take what they wanted and get out until a robber jumped over the counter, at which point the clerk stabbed him and called the police. I don’t fault that clerk because too many videos of criminals feeling invincible and hurting innocent people. But luckily here, we just have to roll over and follow the criminals’ orders because only they and the police are allowed to have firearms however, its only the criminals I see more using it. Police are always minutes away when seconds count and no police officer here is going to risk their lives to protect anyone else. Only we will risk our own lives for ourselves and our family so allow us to do so instead of developing a system of dependency on a service (RCIPS) that doesn’t work.

    Cayman produces nothing as a nation, we provide no unique service as a nation and through the idea that we can just pay someone else for the things we need such as food, water, labour, security is all nice and good until we can’t. When we have to start doing those things ourselves we will be completely behind and out of practice. How many households have the mental fortitude to defend themselves? Or do they rely on the security company to respond to the alarm minutes after the help is needed. How many of us know how to grow some produce for ourselves should all the other nations decide they need their own food more than they need money?

    All I’m really trying to say, as it relates to this article, is that it is my opinion that we as a nation are too removed from the realities of life and as things start to get worse in terms of crime and scarcity of goods, we won’t be able to simply jump back into doing what needs to be done in the way it needs to be done. Criminals are feeling entitled to other people’s labour and after all these years, when will we realize that the government cannot solve this issue. They are creating it and allowing it to continue because it makes us dependent on them.

    Its time to start taking more active approaches in our communities. Make our homes a reflection of what we want the country to be. After we get our houses in order, then we can get our neighborhoods in order and after that then we can get our country in order. Be able to do the things we need to and stop relying on other people.

    I did watch the video. One must be blind, deaf and dumb not to recognise and arrest the criminal.
    Kudos to the employee for remaining calm. Ask for a raise. BIG raise.

          It’s about time Caymanians stand up at the next elections, by not voting for politicians who pander to Jamaicans for their votes.
          If Caymanians don’t do anything to stop the slide , sure as hell Jamaicans will take over.

    What are we thinking, having liquor stores open so late?? What did we think was going to happen?? Insanity. Same goes for the late hours of the bars and clubs.

    It’s a shame the police don’t actively ticket the morons who park on the road outside of this place. There’d then be a police presence 24/7.

      Another media house has the video of the incident. The accent. The skin color. The voice. All clear. All capable of helping the public identify the culprit.

          It’s clearly a Caymanian putting on a Jamaican accent. But you’d have to be familiar with both to make that distinction so…

          Listen clearly to the video; sounds more like a Caymanian attempting to disguise his accent.  The emphasis on using ‘boomboclat’ many times.  Do you think the culprit is stupid enough actual use his accent; he knows he is being recorded.  He did messed up a few times though, as you can clearly hear the Caymanian accent.  It’s call throwing off the police or public and only a fool will not see that.

          It seems to me that the speaker was making an effort to maintain a particular accent but lost focus towards the end of the clip. One accent does not sound authentic.

        Black, yelling “hurry up bumba clot” and wearing a lovely hat. I couldn’t quite hear whether the robber was saying “Shabba” when he ran out. Further footage is on the KFC security cam showing the perpetrator ordering a bucket of KFC to go. Not sure what their preferred pronoun was he/she/it/they.
