Visitor charged with importing cannabis resin

| 26/05/2014

(CNS): A French national visiting a family resident in the Cayman Islands who was arrested last week on suspicion of importing drugs has now been charged and was due to appear in Summary Court Monday. The man, who flew into Cayman from the United States, was arrested by customs officers at the airport for possession and importation of cannabis resin, also known as hashish, but officials did not reveal the quantity of the drug. The suspected drugs were found in his luggage during a search and on preliminary assessment he was arrested and placed on bail until the drug was analyzed. He was formally charged after the tests confirmed it was hashish.

Assistant Collector of Customs Trevor Williams said, “We will maintain our zerotolerance approach for possession and or importation of any illegal drugs; we will maintain our intense vigilance and wish to remind the public that offences of this nature will not be tolerated.”
