The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service has arrested a 40-year-old man on suspicion of obtaining a pecuniary advantage by deception.
The arrest was made by West Bay police Friday morning following various reports of a man knocking on people’s homes asking for money.
Police have received similar reports from residents in all island districts. Although accounts from residents vary slightly in each case, the common theme involves a man knocking on the door asking for money for gas.
The RCIPS asks that anyone who experiences a situation like this to call police giving a description of the man and any vehicle he was using.
