Quick arrests in NS store robbery

Four men were arrested late Monday afternoon following a robbery at Chisholm’s Supermarket in North Side district.
About 4.25pm Monday police received a report that two men, both in possession of what appeared to be handguns,  entered the small, family-owned market. Police said they threatened a female member of staff before making off with a quantity of cash and cigarettes.

No one was injured and no shots were fired.
A grey hatchback vehicle sped off from the store property immediately following the heist.
The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service helicopter was dispatched and crew members quickly spotted the grey hatchback driving on Frank Sound Road where it turned left towards East End. Police said the car stopped for a short time and some property was thrown into the bush. The car then continued speeding towards East End.

Patrol units stopped the vehicle on Sea View Road near the junction of High Rock Road. All four men inside the hatchback were arrested on suspicion of robbery at around 4.45pm Monday.
