The arrest was made after Royal Cayman Islands Police officers responded to a report of a burglary in Bodden Town around 3pm Thursday. It was reported that the person who was responsible for the break-in had left the scene in a stolen Honda CRV.
A short time later, officers saw the vehicle enter the Cayman Crossing condo complex in South Sound Road. The driver of the CRV stopped the vehicle and ran off. Officers arrested him a short distance away. A firearm and a quantity of ammunition was subsequently recovered.
The teenager has been arrested on suspicion of possession of an unlicensed firearm, burglary and taking and driving away a vehicle without the owners consent.
