Construction materials stolen from unfinished high school

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service is investigating the theft of construction materials, including copper wire, from a storage area on the John Gray High School construction site.

Police officers responded Saturday afternoon when security guards noticed three men near the construction site storage area at the back of the building off Walkers Road in George Town.

The three men ran when the security guards approached and left the scene in a white car, police said.

No arrests have been made in the case.

The new high school, which began construction works in 2008, has not been completed due to numerous difficulties with cost overruns and project delays.

Ministry of Education officials said in November that government is going back to the drawing board on budgeting and planning for the school prior to any new construction work resuming.

  1. By the time they are ready to build, I am sure there will be nothing left to build with, all materials will be gone. OFF ISLAND. When the Farmers market, in front of the Red Cross was being built, certains persons took a truck and moved all the Ice and water shield that was there and sold them to construction companies. Remember there was a BIG story about it in the papers.This person was not a Caymanian.
    There was proof where a police could have made investigations and arrest, however as the saying goes “POUFF” not a thing done. Not the Police fault, but persons who knew about it and did not tell the police..
