Two more bank robbery charges sent to Grand Court

Two more men were taken to Summary Court on Monday charged in connection with the 28 June robbery at the Cayman National Bank branch in Buckingham Square in which over $500,000 was stolen. They are Andre Nicholas Burton, 27, of a West Bay address, and George Eric Mignott, 23, of North Sound Estates.  

Mignott is charged with the robbery and possession of an imitation firearm with intent to commit the robbery. 

Burton faces those two charges plus a third of being an accessory after the fact. It is alleged that he acted as “getaway driver” of a red Chevy Equinox. 

Because robbery can be dealt with only in Grand Court, the two men had their files transmitted to the higher court for mention there on 20 July. Meanwhile, Magistrate Valdis Foldats remanded them in custody. Burton was represented by Attorney John Furniss, Mignott by Attorney Nicholas Hoffman. 

Late Monday afternoon police confirmed that a fourth arrest had been made in relation to the Cayman National Bank robbery. A news release stated that a 40-year-old woman was arrested earlier in the day on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery. She remained in police custody while enquiries were continuing. 

Last week, Marlon Hudson Dillon, 28, had his charges transmitted to Grand Court, where he is scheduled to appear this Friday, 13 July.  

Dillon, of a West Bay address, was also charged with robbery and possession of an imitation firearm with intent in connection with the CNB incident (Caymanian Compass, 4 July). 

As previously reported, four men are in custody awaiting Grand Court dates for the 3 May robbery at ScotiaBank in downtown George Town (Compass, 2 July). 

Christopher Julian Myles, 31; James Herbert McLean, 21; and David Emmanuel Parchment, 25, are accused of conspiracy to commit robbery. Kevin Curtis Bowen, 30, is charged with being an accessory after the fact. 

Parchment will make his first appearance in Grand Court on Friday, 13 July, The others were brought to Grand Court last Friday and are set to return on Friday, 20 July.
