Man in court for West Bay robbery

Case to be mentioned again on 3 August

Josh Alexander Bodden, 23, appeared
in Summary Court on Wednesday, facing charges of robbery and possession of an
imitation firearm with intent to commit assault.

The incident was reported as having
occurred at Shoes Best Repair and Variety Store on Fountain Road, West Bay, on
21 July, just before midday.

Crown Counsel Tricia Hutchinson
objected to bail because of the seriousness of the offence. She told Magistrate
Nova Hall that an individual entered the premises with what appeared to be a
firearm and demanded cash from a worker in the store.  Cash in the sum of CI$41 and US$2 was handed
over and the person then fled.

Bodden, a resident of West Bay, did
not say anything and was not represented.

The magistrate put his matters for
mention again on 3 August.

He is also charged with refusing to
provide a specimen of urine for testing on 21 July.


  1. I realise that the Compass is simply reporting news as it comes along – and properly so – but it is very depressing how day after day, there are reports of criminal violence (robberies, injuries, family), theft and fraud. What is the Government, the community and all who love Cayman doing about it?

  2. For years Cayman Islands hide the bad news and sweep under the carpet,now its running wild and you’re blaming the compass, its tipical to blame other. Their are no more space under carpet.
