A reward of up to US $10,000 leading to the arrest and conviction of the Fidelity bank robbers is being offered.
Fidelity Bank, Cayman Crime Stoppers and the RCIPS have joined forces to offer the reward for information leading to the arrest, and subsequent conviction, of the people responsible for the robbery at the Dr Roys Drive branch Friday, 24 September.
Shortly before 10.00 a.m. on that Friday, three men, all armed with what appeared to be firearms, entered the bank. Police said they threatened customers and staff before making off with a sum of cash.
No shots were fired and although no one was injured, staff and customers were left shaken by the ordeal.
Initial reports indicated that the men responsible made off in a black coloured Jeep Compass.
The suspects were described as follows:
Suspect 1 – Brown complexion, 6′ tall, weighing about 180 lbs. He was wearing a white overall over his face and dark glasses.
Suspect 2 – Around 5’9”, slim build, 170 – 180 pounds with a dark brown complexion, wearing denim pants and a white and grey coloured shirt.
Suspect 3 – Around 5’9”, 170-180 pounds, with a dark brown complexion, wearing a white shirt and dark pants.
“We are grateful to Fidelity Bank and Cayman Crime Stoppers for joining with the RCIPS to offer this reward,” RCIPS Superintendent Marlon Bodden said. “The men responsible are still at large but there is no doubt that someone knows who they are, where they are and the location of the firearms used in this crime.”
“This was a terrifying ordeal for the staff members and the customers involved. Although no one was injured a number of people, including an expectant mum, were left traumatised by the ordeal.”
Anyone with any information about this crime should inform the police immediately. Calls can also be made to Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS).
