Two men, ages 47 and 24, were taken into custody after 2 a.m. Saturday after their vehicle was followed by police, ending in a collision near A.L. Thompson’s in George Town, a spokesperson for the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service said.

What appeared to be a loaded and unlicensed firearm was recovered from the men’s pickup truck, which was also seized for the investigation, the RCIPS said in a press release.

Chief Inspector Patrick Beersingh said the men failed to stop for police on Shamrock Road. Police then followed the vehicle until the driver lost control, resulting in a collision with a utility pole on Sound Way, just off North Sound Road.

The men were treated for injuries at the Cayman Island Hospital and released into police custody.


  1. As I’ve already said….stop them….search them…and you’ll find the guns.

    And get the people who use them off the streets.

    Its not too late to stem the tide of murder and gun crime in Cayman but…

    Its very late to be taking the necessary serious actions.

    At the end of the day…better late than never.
