Cops seize ganja and arrest local man in drug bust

| 03/06/2014

(CNS): A 47-year-old Caymanian has been arrested on suspicion of being in possession of a controlled drug, possession with intent to supply a controlled drug and consumption of a controlled drug following a drug bust at an East End address last week. An RCIPS spokesperson said that officers from the Drugs & Serious Crimes Task Force, the K-9 Unit, the Uniform Support Group and the Marine Unit conducted an operation in the district on Friday where a large quantity of ganja was recovered, though police officials have not indicated the amount. During the drug bust a 47-year-old was taken into custody and interviewed.

The man has since been bailed to return to the police station at a later date as enquiries continue.

“The misuse of controlled drugs directly impacts the safety and wellbeing of those living here, and the RCIPS will continue to focus its resources on those persons who are actively engaged in the supply of drugs within our islands,” said Superintendent Robert Scotland who is in charge of specialist operations.

    I personally would like to hear that the RCIP has seized a LARGE number of guns etc…….Does anyone feel safer now that there is less ganja on street but the same number of guns or more?   

    If the prison is overcrowed let us use the free space wisely. Were they not growing ganja on the prison farm? Don't they have a big issue with ganja in the prison?  According to the adminstration of Northward people arrive as non-smokers and leave as smokers?

    What are they going to do? Sentence this man to 20 years of growing and smoking ganja behind bars on the public dime?
