| 03/04/2012

Sunset over North Sound (254x300).jpg(CNS): Four Cuban men were arrested by police at the weekend and their boat seized as officials believe it may have been stolen in the United States. Police said that on Sunday evening at around 8:00pm the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service’s Marine Unit and Drugs and Serious Crime Task Force arrested the four men aged 35, 38, 39 and 40 in the North Sound area of Grand Cayman on suspicion of illegal entry into the Cayman Islands. At the time of the arrests a 36’ Yellow Fin boat with three 350 hp outboard engines was also seized as part of the operation. “It is suspected that this vessel was stolen from Florida, USA and transported illegally to the Cayman Islands,” a police spokesperson revealed.

Officials said that the Cayman Islands Immigration Department is currently assisting the police investigation into the identity and status of all four men, not only in the Cayman Islands but also in the US. They are currently in custody while the investigation continues, the police spokesperson confirmed.

    Because this wet  foot  dry foot policy is set up for human smuggling and the smugglers are probably not us citizens anyway and they are criminals regardless.

    what do you call smuggling, illegal entry, theft etc, etc,.

      Seriously speaking, I feel that is the best thing to do. SEND THEM BACK TO CUBA.  Why is it that everybody take Cayman Islands for fools?  Is it because those in authority do not know how to run this country,.   WELL !!

    Those Cubans are comming here from Miami to wait for the refugee boat when it come out of Cuba.   A boat is probably around the corner.

    I do hope the Police lock them away for this offence.  They are always doing this.

    That's a hell of a raft!


      WeSoF8%#ed , yes we are, you are so correct.   Now let us sit back and watch what the government is going to do with the raft.  When no one is looking, it will disappear.

      In other countries people that do this sh**t is used for example not to do it again or anyone else who have it in mind.

      If it was  from our neighbors from the East, This police and Immigration would have taken boat and skinned them, but these criminals who come here with straight hair and pretty face is lolipop for some departments. Stop it.
