Brackers help cops to net drug dealers

| 20/10/2014

(CNS): Two men from Grand Cayman were arrested on Cayman Brac Thursday in connection with reports of drug dealing in the Watering Place area. After receiving information, a response team made up of local police, special constables and officers from the customs department stopped a white Hyundai car in the Creek Road area and recovered a vegetable matter resembling ganja. The 37-year-old driver and the 23-year-old passenger were both arrested. Chief Inspector Frank Owens warned anyone going to the Brac planning on committing crime that he has over 1,500 people watching.

“Every now and again we have some people coming to the Sister Islands who think they can commit crime here without repercussions, whether it be breaking into people’s property or being involved in illegal drugs,” said Owens.

“I have 1500 plus eyes and ears on the Sister Islands who care for these islands and want to keep them safe for our residents and people who want to come here to enjoy themselves. So the message is we are watching you, with the support of the community and the excellent co-operation of our partner agencies we will deal robustly with any illegal activities, which has been shown by successful operations and arrests in the last year”.

The two men in this case were both arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply/possession of a controlled drug and consumption of a controlled drug. Police seized the drugs and the car and the suspects were interviewed before being bailed to return to Brac Police Station at a later date.

    Everyone knows that this happens every day at Watering Place. The only reason someone got caught was because he was from Grand Cayman. Cutting in on someones territory.
