The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service has released several CCTV images of a robbery at Butterfield Bank in the Compass Centre in attempts to locate the suspects involved.
The images clearly show at least two of the robbers, including one wearing a mask of US President Barack Obama. They also show several bank customers laying down on the floor.
An incentive is being offered to anyone who has information about Wednesday’s
bank heist at Butterfield Bank in the Compass Centre.
Butterfield Bank (Cayman), Limited, Crime Stoppers, and the
RCIPS have joined forces to offer a reward up to US$50,000 for information
leading to the arrest and conviction of the bandits.
Three men wearing Halloween masks and carrying handguns walked into the bank around 11.20am
Wednesday, 24 November.
One of the men fired a shot into the ceiling and ordered
everyone onto the ground; the three then demanded money and fled with an
undisclosed amount of cash.
No one inside the bank was injured.
A 17-year-old was arrested on
suspicion of robbery in connection with the heist. He has since been released on police bail.
Anyone with information about the robbery must contact
officials at the George Town Police station on 949-4222 or crime stoppers-
800-8477- before 31 December to be eligible to claim the reward.
