Drug Arrests on Little Cayman

| 05/09/2008

(CNS): Three men were arrested on Thursday 4 September, two on Little Cayman after a
vehicle failed to stop for police. Once stopped, the vehicle was searched and a quantity
of Ganja was found concealed in buckets. The two men, a 47 year-old and a 36 year-old, were arrested for Possession of Ganja with the Intent to Supply.

They were transported to Cayman Brac Police Station. Another man was subsequently arrested in Cayman Brac for Being Concerned in the Possession and Supply of a Controlled Drug.

These arrests came even as the Sister Islands were recovering from the damage done by Gustav, and the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) pointed out in a release that police, customs and marine enforcement officers continued with their crime fighting responsibilities despite the storm.

“This was a significant arrest which resulted in more drugs being taken off our streets. We continue to be vigilant and have a zero tolerance for the use and sale of illegal drugs.” Stated Acting Chief Inspector Patrick Beersingh.

“Even though we were dealing with the aftermath of Gustav and its effects on the Island, the officers did not fail their duties. I commend them for their diligence and hard work through what was a very stressful time. They are a credit to the Police Service and these Islands,” he added.

Anyone with information about crime taking place in the Cayman Islands should contact their local police station or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS). All persons calling Crime Stoppers remain anonymous, and are eligible for a reward of up to $1000, should their information lead to an arrest or recovery of property/drugs.
