(CNS): A 37 year old man and a 19 year old girl were arrested on Cayman Brac Thursday morning following a drug bust in Spot Bay. Police began the operation at just after 11:00am, yesterday (4 December) when the Joint Marine Unit (JMU) with Cayman Brac Uniform officers, the Customs K9 unit executed a search warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Law at a residence on Spot Bay Road. As the officers were about to search the residence the occupier ran off into the Bluff Area triggering a major search operation involving the police helicopter before he and the woman were arrested for drug dealing. When officers searched the house, police said they found around two pounds of ganja.

A search of the bluff area was conducted with the help of Air Support Unit and the man was apprehended. The pair were arrested for possession of a controlled drug with intent to Supply, Possession and Consumption of a Controlled Drug. Police said the girl has since been interviewed and bailed but the man remains in custody.

Chief Inspector Owens who heads up the Cayman Brac police said: “Again, the message is clear that illegal drug activity will not be tolerated, I wish to thank the community for their assistance in keeping illegal drugs off the streets of Cayman Brac and the Sister Islands but more so I want to recognize the excellent proactive work being done by our joint unit.”
