North Siders mugged in latest armed robbery

| 16/11/2022 | 25 Comments

(CNS): Two men sitting outside a residence on North Side Road late Monday night became the latest victims of armed men when they were robbed of an undisclosed quantity of cash at gunpoint, as the worrying increase in armed stick-ups continues. Police said that around 11:30pm on 14 November they were called out to the location, where the victims told them they had been approached by three masked men who brandished firearms and demanded cash. The robbers then fled the location with the money.

No shots were fired and no one was injured during the incident. One suspect was of a thick build and about 5’6″ tall. Another was about 5’7″-5’8″ tall, and the third had a slim build and was about 5’9″ tall. All three were wearing black hoodies, dark jeans, black gloves and black masks.

This is now the ninth robbery since the beginning of November in a spike of armed robberies all across Grand Cayman, almost all of which have involved guns. RCIPS management has so far made no public statements about this worrying trend but the police issued a circular to the media on Tuesday indicating plans for a press briefing today.

The latest incident is currently under investigation and anyone with any information is asked to contact Bodden Town CID at 947-2220. Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777 or the website.

    This gun crime wave reminds me of a frog story I heard.

    and yet we still have no cops catching the speeders which probably would also catch some convictions.

    Armed Robbers: 9 – RCIPS: 0

    Police ARE the problem!

    Weird that these guys would randomly approach the men and rob them… It’s like they knew they were holding a large sum of cash. Where did said cash come from?

    …I’m no detective, but I’m guessing if we had a national lottery it might not have happened.

    Enough is enough! Tiny wee island and with a huge police force per capita, still can’t find or prevent these daily assaults on our public. Get the job done RCIPS!

    “Oh, no need to concern ourselves. Its just the plebs. Thankfully our VIPs, minister’s weren’t robbed. West bay road and south sound remain okay, so lets focus on another issue”

    – Security council.. maybe.. more than likely

    Keep it up CIG! The way to maintain the quality of life is to assure the people of some semblance of security and safety and this is not the way to do this. I don’t know who wrote the quote but it sums up my thoughts very well. I am fearful that in order to protect my family and all that I’ve worked for, I will be forced to become something I don’t want to become. That change will likely be permanent and it will be for many who are just like me, those who followed the rules. I fear if something isn’t done soon, this island will change.

    “The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love.

    They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know, that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over. The moment the Men who wanted to be left alone are forced to fight back, it is a form of suicide.

    They are literally killing off who they used to be. Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these Men who wanted to be left alone, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives. They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror.

    TRUE TERROR will arrive at these people’s door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy… but it will fall upon the deaf ears of the Men who just wanted to be left alone.”

      You have spoken well…
      But their does not have to be vengeance or hate in the hearts of those who will enlist to protect and serve this country.

      We have a police force to handle these issues.
      The culprits are in for a reward of their doing. And if you are hearing something like this from somewhere else you will understand something more.

      It is also unfortunate those men were robbed at gun point. They were not killed.
      We only know what the news told us so far.
      So, regarding this situation, it is a community thing, not a commercial crime. It is still sad all over.

      At this point the group have made a name for themselves. They want to plant fear because they have something bigger planned.

      We should not all have weapons here, but we should have a right to protect our bodies from lethal ballistics.

      When the community is outridden with crime, protection should be authorized to private security that live or work in the areas.

      At this rate, loss of life to criminals with guns is more than the loss of life from drunk driving. I am no criminal, but at this point we just got to have faith and be ready spiritually. Goodbye now.

    RCIPS – get your act together!

    It is always 3 guys doing these robberies.

    They need to be apprehended.

    Were the guys that escaped from the drug boat ever apprehended?

    So where’s The Premier,CoP, Governor, DG, AG, District MLA’s, Pastors? Oh that’s right they’ve gone quiet for being cowards, no other way to describe this clueless selfish and useless bunch. The robbers can’t be caught on an island 22x7mile island well God have mercy on our souls if the RCIPS couldn’t be more incompetent, you could fill an evidence room with a million clues but they still won’t 😳 solve the crime.
    Jamaica has announced that 10 Parishes will go into lockdown due to the spike in murders and violence, to date 1,350 murders, we better follow suit with 8 hour curfews 10pm-6am but that won’t happen until a tourist or “important person/family member” is murdered. I do feel that these so called robberies are not mistaken identifies as the victims often are either selling numbers or dealing in drugs to be robbed of large sums. The 3 suspects seem to match the description of the past robberies so maybe someone will shoot them or the RCIPS will finally get off their bums and get to work. I believe its time we put a stop to hiring Jamaican police officers as they’re a liability to our national security.

      Until RCIPS pay a proper wage and the cost of rent and living is under control, you’ll never attract UK or Canadian officers in any decent number to Cayman. And that’s ultimately what we want, not JDF or JCF rejects giving their countrymen a bly.

        The truth is that U.K., US and Canadian police officers left these islands due to the manner they were treated by Caymanian colleagues.
        Being stuck in the old central cells, only to be used to sort out incidents the local officers were either to cowardly to be involved in, or too personally connected by family or community links to be able to deal with dispassionately and effectively, caused a forced departure for many.
        After the debacle of Hurricane Ivan and the dereliction of duty by far too many local officers and the incompetence of both senior staff and politicians, many expat officers walked away disillusioned leaving the void to be filled by a deliberate recruitment campaign in Jamaica.
        Cheap recruitment was always going to be a disaster, especially from a country that is infamous for its anarchical, corrupt, and crime ridden society.
        The truth, as hard as it maybe to admit, is that Cayman doesn’t want to pay those charged with the safety and security of its citizens a proper living wage, neither does it want to implement world class recruitment and training to ensure they get the best and brightest from their own people, and of those from further afield.
        Instead they would rather remunerate government employees with public cash, whilst the employee is allowed to conduct personal business. They would rather pay the salaries of over-rated and under-educated politicians whose own record of integrity is questionable at the very least.
        Until this territory understands the premise of accountability and integrity in public office, nothing will change. Criminality here has been concealed behind the lunacy of self-interest and entitlement for far too long and is reflected in the culture of a people who cannot see beyond their own myopic view of the world.
        Wake up Cayman, this mess you’re in is of your own making. Greed has consumed you, you are heading down a spiralling drain of self-inflicted pain and criminality for which you have no answer. A couple of generations have chosen the route of violence and self-entitlement over hard work and honestly earned income. And, too many expats have made Cayman their pot of gold through self-interest and not in the interest of the community and society they chose to live amongst, or represent.
        Time to clear the swamp, but sadly I doubt whether either the capability or will now exists to be able to do so.

    Don’t worry, the police and Governor will have a press briefing. That is indeed a comforting thought!
