Police arrested a 29-year-old George Town man today in connection with the armed robbery of an armored van in the Foster’s Food Fair grocery store parking lot on April 8

He was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and being in possession of an unlicensed firearm, according to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service. 

Police think he is one of the two suspects being sought in connection with the robbery.

The man remains in police custody.

Close to a dozen shots were fired in the incident at the store’s Airport location. Two of those bullets hit the arm and the leg of a security guard working for the armored van company. 

The RCIPS released descriptions of the two suspects on April 11. 

Suspect No. 1 – About 6 feet tall, wearing black or dark colored clothing; Suspect No. 2 – Between 5 feet, 6 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall, wearing jeans and a grey/white hoodie shirt.

The Honda CR-V used as the getaway vehicle was found in eastern George Town days later.

  1. I think that now that they have arrested one in this robbery , is the time that name of the criminal suspect should be released, and the plead to the public should be asking for information . An investigation is like doing a puzzle . If you don’t know what the pieces look like or shape or color , you will not know where it goes . By releasing his name maybe someone that seen and know the 2 criminals before they put their mask on , then one or two people from the public could testify that they seem these 2 together at the crime scene , but you are not going to get that information from the arrested suspect too easy .
