A police officer is arrested Thursday (11 July) in connection with a bank burglary dating back to 2016.
In a statement released Thursday afternoon, the police said their Serious Crime Review Team arrested the 46-year-old officer. The George Town man was held in connection with a commercial burglary at a bank from June 2016.
Cayman 27 understands the man is a serving police officer who has now been suspended from duty. Police have not released his name or his rank.
They have also declined to share any details about the burglary in question.
However, a search of Cayman 27’s archives revealed that on 23 June 2016 Royal Bank of Canada’s main branch in George Town was broken into.
An undisclosed sum of cash was taken from the tills behind the cashier’s desks. Our reports indicated that the vault remained untouched.
Police said the officer was released on bail.
