Ganja found on Sister Islands burns on Little Cayman

| 31/05/2011

(CNS): Police set fire to almost 140lbs of ganja this weekend during a controlled burning on Little Cayman.  The drugs were transported from Cayman Brac to Little Cayman by police officers on Saturday, 28 May and destroyed in the presence of the District Officer for Little Cayman, who is also a Justice of the Peace. While some of the drug had been seized through policing operations – the majority was recovered after being washed up on the shores of the Sister Islands over the past few months, a police spokesperson confirmed.

Inspector Harold Forte, the Sister Islands Commander said that the vigilance of police staff, residents and colleagues in other law enforcement agencies had combined to ensure that the drugs did not reach the streets of the Sister Islands.

CNS has also made enquiries with both the police and the customs department about the investigation into ganja that was found by a member of the public at the Cayman Brac Landfill earlier this year and is waiting for a response. In February a small plastic Ziploc bag wrapped in customs tape containing what appearedto be ganja was found in a small purple duffel bag in a far corner of the Brac dump by a member of the public. The question was raised about how drugs which had clearly been seized by customs officers could find their way on to the public dump.

    Police transported the 200 lbs of ganga earlier this week to the island, then took the 170 lbs to the burn site, the 140 lbs were burned without any concerns other than happy crabs and several stone tarpons from the ash that fell….

     

    just kidding, great job to the RCIPS, keep it up!

    Legalize it already, It'll bring in tourism, you can tax it, sell it, make certain 'smoking' zones, save money for unnecessary jail time. Solve a bunch of crime…

    When will people question instead of condone such a natural herb.

    Less people living on the island, hence smaller number of people getting stoned.

    Early sales reports do indicate that the local store has run out of Cheetos and grape soda so can someone bring a few megapacks of both over on the next flight…if it can land with all the haze.

    Why take the ganga to Little Cayman to burn it?
