More than a dozen items believed to have been taken in burglaries prior to June 14 were recovered following a police search of the apartment where two suspects arrested in connection with the break-ins stayed.
The items recovered include watches, jewelry, a camera and a pair of headphones.
The two men arrested in the case were employed in Cayman on work permits. They were arrested on June 15 on suspicion of burglary after being spotted in the South Sound area of George Town. The two appeared in court Friday, June 19.
A Royal Cayman Islands Police officer on patrol late that night saw the two men, ages 31 and 25, “acting suspiciously dressed in black hoodies and gloves.”
The men, who are from the Dominican Republic, ran after they were spotted by police, but were captured soon afterward.
Police searched the immediate area and found a private home that was empty at the time had been broken into. A car connected to the two men, according to police, was found nearby and certain articles taken from the home were found inside the car.
A third suspect is still being sought in connection with the burglary.
RCIPS officers request owners of the items who wish to recover them to bring any photographs or proof of ownership, whether that be serial numbers, receipts or any other method of identification to the George Town Police Station.
