Captain’s Bakery, West Bay Road

(CNS): Police are on the lookout for a tall, slim man with a dark complexion who made off on a bicycle with the cash register from a fast-food restaurant on the West Bay Road in broad daylight on Thursday. The Captain’s Bakery was robbed at gunpoint at around 4:30 in the afternoon by a man wearing a white tank top and blue shorts who “had his head wrapped in a mask”, the RCIPS said.

Police said the robber entered the restaurant and went straight to the restroom. When he came out, he approached the cashier with what appeared to be a silver handgun.

The worker ran away as the man jumped over the counter, stole the cash register with an undisclosed quantity of cash inside, and then made off from the location on a bicycle.

It’s not clear from the police report if the man was masked when he first entered the premises. No shots were fired during the robbery and no one has been arrested, police said.

The stick-up is now under investigation and anyone with information is asked to call the George Town Police Station at 949-4222. Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS confidential tip line at 949-7777 or the website. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to

    Left on a…bicycle!!! Only in Cayman. Criminals are so poor they can’t even steal a car.

      you want to get stuck in traffic in a car?

      We’re dealing with the most astute of criminals here. Probably attended the school for the best of the best crooks, Top Bun.

      Yeah, can’t rely on taxis, and they’re too expensive.

    I guess the strict gun laws aren’t working. Same with Turks and Caicos except they are imprisoning US tourists for up to 12 years for accidentally carrying a few bullets. Imprisoning tourists probably won’t work either.

    Robber comfortably makes off with cash register on a bicycle. Rest of headline: without any fear of apprehension, knowing the RCIPS are not dispersed in the community, or willing to apprehend Cayman’s many criminals – even in the core security priority, and high crime areas.

  5. Duh? says:

    No doubt the police immediately issued a BOLO for a guy wrapped up against the cold, on a bicycle,balancing a cash register on his handlebars, can’t be too many cycling down the West Bay Rd that fit that description.

    Does “dark complexion” mean Black? Are the police not allowed to call Black people Black anymore? If so why? Does a brown person (I am a brown person) have a “dark complexion also? Just want to be clear about it. Honest question. Please respond and I can get my answer from it. Thank you.

    Scope here for a budding cartoonist to produce an image of the culprit fleeing the scene, one arm around the cash register, the other gripping a handlebar, escaping at a breakneck speed of 2 miles per hour.

      Would be interesting to see which arm was holding the gun which prevented Captain’s Bakery from retrieving their property

    A sign that criminals have become more emboldened. This should surprise no one.

    It all starts with poor traffic laws enforcement. Inch by inch the criminals have evolved.

    Was it a Heffy or Shogun bicycle?
    Heffy cyclists tend to be a bit more naughty.
    Homeboy def got strong thighs carrying a freaking cashier while bicycling. I’m not even mad That’s amazing. Don’t think Lance Armstrong could pull off this heist.

    “had his head wrapped in a mask”

    This new phenomenon of people going about with their heads and faces completely wrapped has to stop. I pass scores of people every day riding bicycles, walking the sidewalks and driving in cars with their faces and heads completely wrapped is make-shift balaclavas. It appears, more than anything else, to be an attempt to conceal one’s identity. Quite often the people doing it are coming and going from construction sites. Just pass by the new Hyatt project on WB Road (right next door to Captains Bakery mind you!) at 7am and 5pm, and you’ll see what I mean. I can understand wearing it on a construction job site, but very often people are covering their faces and heads coming and going from the site. I see guys walking all the way down Eastern Avenue towards the Hyatt site with their faces and heads covered at 7am! Why is this necessary? Are people trying to not catch COVID walking on Eastern Avenue?? Come on RCIPS. This stinks!

      Don’t be daft. It’s quite a common scenario here where cheap, foreign labor is hired on a permit for dish washing at night and are working at the restaurant owner’s brother’s construction site illegally during the day.

      Rich Caymanians continue to import poverty and crime so they can hide deeper and higher in their gated community mansions while decimating the middle class and partnering with billionaire expats who further gentrify ever last sq ft of gcm.

      Meanwhile the sister islands are a forgotten part of Cayman, and in some cases, shunned for reasons unknown.

      If you worked outside all day, you’d know it’s because they’re trying to avoid burning and skin cancer.

      I don’t like the look of it either, but I would never tell a construction employee to risk their health to be appear more friendly..
