Suspected car thief arrested twice in one weekend

Police arrested the same man twice in two days on suspicion of stealing cars on Cayman Brac.

The 36-year-old man from George Town was arrested on Saturday and again on Sunday.

He was arrested on suspicion of burglary and taking a vehicle without the consent of the owner on Saturday after police responded to a report of burglary and car theft near Spot Bay in Cayman Brac. He was released on police bail.

The following day, he was arrested after a car crash near the old airport on Cayman Brac.

“It appeared that the car had been crashed while in the process of being stolen,” police said in a statement.

This time he was arrested on suspicion of taking a vehicle without consent of the owner, damage to property, and possession of ganja. He remained in police custody Monday afternoon, police said.
