A joint operation involving the RCIPS Air and Marine Units led to the arrest of the five Little Cayman robbery suspects earlier this afternoon.

About 3.30pm, the RCIPS helicopter, which had deployed with armed officers on board, spotted a modified canoe approximately 25 miles off East End, Grand Cayman.

The helicopter crew coordinated an intercept of the canoe by the Marine Unit’s Guardian. The canoe, with five men on board, tried to evade Guardian by changing course several times at speed, however the combination of the helicopter hovering ahead and the tenacity of the Guardian crew led to the suspects stopping the boat in the water.

Marine officers boarded the canoe and arrested the men on suspicion of robbery. The men and the boat are currently being brought to shore.

Police enquiries continue.

The RCIPS Air Operations and Marine Units have been deployed to search for five robbery suspects who made off from Little Cayman in a boat.

About 1.10pm today police received a report that five men entered the Mini Mart in Blossom Village, Little Cayman. A number of the men were armed with what appeared to be firearms. They stole the cash pan from the store, ran off and boarded what has been described as a ‘fast vessel’. They were last seen heading out to sea.

No shots were fired and no-one was injured.

The RCIPS Air Operations and Marine Units are currently searching for the suspects’ boat.

A further update will be provided later.
