Prospect robbery

Another robbery was reported Tuesday evening, when police responded to a call on Mangrove Avenue in Prospect.

Police said a man was set upon after getting out of his vehicle outside his home around 8 p.m. Tuesday. The robbery suspect had what appeared to be a gun and a bag containing cash was taken from the victim, police said.

The victim was hurt in the robbery and taken to hospital.

No arrests were reported.


  1. It is time to admit that crime is organized here. They have insiders EVERYWHERE. I mean everywhere, including such places as hospitals, restaurants, hotels, grocery and other stores, customs, immigration, etc. They have access to sensitive personal data. They know where and when someone is carrying cash, who is rich and where they live, who is off island and when they are coming back. Instant communication has benefited criminals greatly. They always escape easily , even when surrounded by a crowd (armored truck robbery).
    As Hector “Tio” Salamanca had said in Breaking Bad : “Family is all.” Their families won’t cooperate with police.
    But the Cayman Islands is not Mexico and there is nowhere to run or hide.
    How do you fight this level of crime in a close knit community? I don’t envy the Commissioner of Police. He is against highly resourceful and organized group of people and their leader(s).
    The situation requires different strategies on a different administrative level.
    Desperate times call for desperate measures?

    I also feel bad for the police officer who was brutally beaten while on duty. I hope he would recover fast, however it is known that head injuries never completely heal. Why there is no update?

  2. While I must agree with Bell and say yes there must a close knit group of criminals and their families for this crime to be continued . I really think that all the Business owners needs to let the Government know that the criminals operating has to be taken care of , or we are going to take matters in our own hands, and don’t try to come after any one of us when we do .
