CNB robbery suspect nabbed in Jamaica

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) confirms that a 36-year-old man has been arrested in Jamaica in connection with the robbery at Cayman National Bank which occurred on 28 June 2012.

“Officers from the RCIPS are working with the Jamaican authorities to secure his return to the Cayman Islands,” a police spokesperson said.

Jamaica police reportedly approached 36-year-old Ryan Edwards, a mason, of Seaforth, Saint Thomas and another man, along Lyssons Main Road while they were in a parked car.

The car was searched and a large sum of cash, including USD$5,000 and KYD$35,000 was found.

A RJR Radio News report says checks with the RCIPS revealed that several of the notes found in Mr. Edwards’ possession matched notes stolen during the Cayman National Bank robbery back in July. Jamaica police later found out that Edwards was wanted by the RCIPS.

The 2004 Toyota Altis motorcar was also seized by police. Jamaica police detectives theorise that Edwards fled the Cayman Islands to Jamaica by boat. Tuesday (14 August) an application was made in the Yallahs resident magistrate’s court that he be remanded. The application was granted and Edwards was remanded until August 20th.

The other man was questioned by the police and released.
