Cancer Society burgled again

Burglars have struck the Cayman Islands Cancer Society for the second time in two months.

This time, the burglars took the safe that was bolted to the floor.

Staff at the charitable organisation arrived at work Thursday morning, 14 February, to find a window broken, the security system disabled and the metal safe missing.

“They physically removed the security system from the wall and they even took the safe that was bolted to the floor,” said Jennifer Weber, operations manager of the Cancer Society. “It’s not a very big safe, but it’s very heavy.”

She was still determining how much was taken in the burglary.

Scene of crime officers were on the scene Thursday taking finger prints at the building, which is next door to the Cayman Islands Hospital.

The Cancer Society was also broken into during the early hours of 11 December. In that break-in, between $400 and $500 was stolen. No-one arrested in connection with that burglary.

Following that break-in, CUC erected two new light poles beside the building.

Ms Weber hopes that the presence of those lights will mean that the burglars can be better identified in the security cameras surrounding the Cancer Society.
