Two men smashed their way through a glass door at
Reflections Tuesday night to commit a robbery, Royal Cayman Islands Police
Just before 11pm, police said sales and security staff were working within the
retail store just off Godfrey Nixon Way, George Town. The door to the store is
kept closed and locked.
Police said two men who were outside the store began throwing rocks at the
glass door and one fired a shot into the door frame. The rocks shattered the
glass panel and one of the suspects, who was masked, climbed through the door
into the store.
Staff members ran to the rear of the store and the suspect made off with the
cash register, police said. No one was injured in the incident.
Armed officers, K-9 and Air Operations units searched the surrounding area. No
arrests were immediately reported.
The suspect who entered the store was described as stocky, wearing a black, long-sleeved
shirt and pants, white sneakers and black gloves. His face was
masked. No description was available at for the second suspect.
Anyone who was in the area at the time and witnessed the robbery, heard shots
being fired or saw the suspects run from the scene is asked to call George Town
police station on 949-4222 or Crime Stoppers 800-8477 (TIPS).
About two hours after the Reflections robbery, two men were arrested just down the street at the Mirco Centre.
Royal Cayman Islands Police said the arrests were made in connection with alleged drugs offences and did not connect the arrests to the robbery case.
RCIPS officers received a report just before 1am that two men were “acting suspiciously” at the Mirco
Centre. One man was described as having his face covered.
Police officers immediately
attended the location and saw two men on bicycles leave the
Centre. One of the men was wearing a hoodie.
The officers instructed the men to
stop but one cycled off, police said. He was then stopped by the officers a short distance
away. Both men, aged 21 and 24 years, were searched and a quantity of ganja was
found, police said.
