George Town store robbery reported

Royal Cayman Islands Police detectives are investigating a robbery at Shop Right, Walkers Road in George Town.

About 11.35am Wednesday, police said a man who had his head covered with a large yellow cloth  entered the Shop Right store. Police said he threatened staff with a knife and demanded cash.

The man left the store with a sum of money and a small quantity of cigarettes.

CCTV still images show the man approaching the shop from Windsor Park Road. He is described as being about 5’ 10” in height, wearing blue three quarter length baggy shorts, a baggy blue short sleeved polo shirt and white training shoes with diagonal stripes. He had his head covered with a yellow cloth which is said to resemble the type of cloths used by people such as gardeners who work outdoors.

Anyone who has any information about the crime or the suspect should contact George Town police station on 949-4222, the RCIPS tip-line on 949-7777, or Crime Stoppers 800-8477 (TIPS).


  1. What time was this picture taken? I would think if anyone saw this person walking down the street looking like the picture it would draw attention. It would also indicate that some or at least one camera was not being monitered at that time. I thought this was going to be a proactive program.

  2. The problem is, in this area there are lots of employees who are gardeners, so it doesn’t look as out of place as you’d imagine.

    He was probably just disappointed that the Burger King collection box had already been raided, so looked for the next place to hit.

    He’ll slip up one day, or if not the ciggies will eventually cause him a long, drawn out and painful death.
