Drug arrests North Side, West Bay

| 16/01/2009

(CNS): Police arrested three suspected drug sellers this week. One man was arrested in North Side Thursday, 15January, and approximately 4 pounds of ganja was seized during an operation by Bodden Town Police and the Drugs Task Force (DTF). The 29-year-old man was arrested at an address in Old Man Bay on suspicion of possession of ganja with intent to supply. The man remains in police custody at this time.

The arrest comes after a number of others that were made in West Bay earlier this week. Overnight Wednesday into Thursday two people, one man and one woman, were arrested for possession of ganja with intent to supply following an operation at an address on Watercourse Road. They remain in police custody at this time.

On Tuesday January 13, West Bay officers arrested a 20-year-old man on suspicion of possession of ganja and consumption of a controlled drug. In a separate incident, a 56-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of cocaine and consumption of a controlled drug. Both have been released on bail pending further investigations.

“Tackling drug related crime is one of our top priorities,” said Detective Inspector Livingston Bailey ofthe Drugs Task Force. “We’re working hard to address the use and sale of illegal substances and anticipate more arrests over the coming weeks. In addition, the arrival of more vessels for our Marine Unit will assist greatly in intercepting illegal drugs destined for our country. Those involved in drugs should take this as a warning. If you haven’t been caught yet, it’s only a matter of time.”

Anyone with information about criminal activity should contact their local police station or call Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS) to pass on information. 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.

    A JOB WELL DONE

    Good Job done Bodden Town, DTF and WB Police,  and nice words of encouragement from Det. Insp. Livingston Bailey, but I encourage the  police to try and find the GUNS in Cayman..  That will put a star in your crown.

    I am absolutely positive the police is doing a good job in keeping down crime, but remember the public is not as much afraid of  the weed heads, but we sure as —– are afraid of the guns, which I am made to understand is enough to start a war.  Be vigilent but stay safe.

    Support the police in their efforts, help them that they may protect you.

    Blessed.
