Police said a “quantity” of Rolex and Breitling watches were stolen during the armed robbery that occurred around 6.45pm Monday in the Strand shopping centre off West Bay Road.
Royal Cayman Islands Police officers said, in addition to the suspicion of robbery, one of the men was also arrested on suspicion of being in possession of an offensive weapon and possession of ganja.
Two of the males were also arrested on suspicion of taking a vehicle without the owner’s consent.
They remain in police custody while inquiries continue. No charges had been filed as of Wednesday.
Despite the arrests, police officers are still asking anyone who witnessed the robbery or saw the suspects either before or after the incident to come forward.
