A man was arrested on suspicion of burglary early Friday in George Town after an officer on patrol spotted him at the intersection of Mary and North Church streets with what appeared to be bottles in both hands.
The officer attempted to speak to the man around 4:50 a.m., but he ran away, and as he ran, more bottles fell out from underneath his clothes.
Police chased the man and eventually apprehended him on Eastern Avenue.
The Royal Cayman Islands Police said that in a liquor-licensed establishment near where the man was seen, the doors of liquor cabinets and a cooler had been opened. The cabinet and cooler contained bottles similar to those the man was carrying, police said.
The man is out on bail for several matters, both criminal and traffic, according to the RCIPS.
