Police in the Cayman Islands are looking for 34-year-old Jamaican, Norval Barrett, who was convicted of robbery in Grand Cayman and served time in prison but may be back in the country.

The Cayman Compass newspaper says police think Barrett is on the island illegally and say anyone who sees Barrett should exercise caution as he could be potentially dangerous.

A court sentenced Barrett to 12 years in prison in 2012 for a robbery at the Shedden Road Esso station in 2010.

According to earlier reports, Barrett used an imitation firearm to hold up the gas station.

He threatened to shoot the cashier if she did not hand over the money.

He got away with CI$454.

He had been in Cayman illegally at the time of the robbery.

It is not clear when he completed his sentence or when he was deported after his time in prison.
