Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce members are offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of armed robbers who held up an armored car at Foster’s Food Fair on April 8.

Wil Pineau, the Chamber’s chief executive officer, said several members of the business community expressed an interest in helping to solve the crime.

“It came from a cross-section of the business community concerned by the very nature of this crime,” Mr. Pineau said.

A suspect arrested last week has been released on bail. No one has yet been charged in connection with the crime.

Close to a dozen shots were fired in the hold-up, which involved two men. A security guard was shot twice in the robbery.

“We followed that news,” Mr. Pineau said, “but we’ve been raising the money since two days after the crime happened.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line on 800-TIPS(8477).
