Jamaican cops arrest Cayman fugitive
(CNS): Police in Jamaica have captured a man wanted in the Cayman Islands for several crimes. The Jamaican media is reporting that 31-year-old Dainian Henry, also known as ‘Yellow’, was arrested in St Ann on Sunday. The man is wanted by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service for possession of an unlicensed firearm, possession of cocaine with intent to supply, escaping custody, attempted robbery, resisting arrest, threatening violence and giving a false name and date of birth to the police. According to media reports, Henry was captured by members of the St Ann operational support team shortly after mid-day during an operation in the Lillyfield District, in Bamboo, St Ann.
The Constabulary Communication Network said Henry has been on the run since October last year. There was no indication from the RCIPS if they have asked for the fugitive to be extradited.
The RCIPS is reportedly still waiting for Ryan Edwards to be returned to Cayman after he was arrested in Jamaica in August in connection with the Cayman National Bank robbery in Buckingham Square, which took place last June. Edwards, a 36-year-old Jamaican national, was discovered in possession of cash stolen in the Cayman bank heist when he was arrested in the neighbouring island. Police reportedly found US$5,000 and CI$35,000 in the car he was driving, which the investigating officers connected to the daylight bank robbery. Edwards is believed to have fled by boat to Jamaica after the heist, in which the robbers stole around $500,000.
Shortly after the hold up, one man from West Bay, who has now pleaded guilty to his involvement in the robbery, was arrested and as a result police arrested further suspects, who are all due to stand trial next April.
