60lb coke haul found in NS

| 07/05/2013

Suspected Cocaine North Side May 2013 (186x300).jpg(CNS): Another major cocaine haul has washed up in the Cayman Islands, this time on Grand Cayman. Following the discovery of two 60lb plus loads of the drug that police recovered from the shore on the South Side of Cayman Brac last month, another 61lbs was discovered in the district of North Side on Monday afternoon. A police spokesperson said that the large bag, containing twenty-five packages of what is suspected to be cocaine, was found washed up on the beach off Old Robin Road. The packages, all wrapped in plastic, measure approximately 7”x 5”x 2”, only slightly smaller than the 8”x6”x2 packages found in the two Brac hauls.

Police have retained the latest batch for forensic testing and while the likelihood that the three hauls are all connected is quite strong, the police have drawn no conclusions yet about the appearance of over 180lbs of the drug on local beaches in the last two and a half weeks, which in total is approaching a street value of some $10 million.

Anyonewho has any information about the drugs, or of any drugs activity in the Cayman Islands, is asked to contact the Drugs and Serious Crime Task Force on 949-4222, the RCIPS Tip-line 949-7777 or Cayman Crime Stoppers on 800-8477(TIPS).

    It might seem like a good idea to think finding COKE and talking about making money from it. But Karma is a she dog. Just have to see what those drug pushers do to our kids. Maybe they dont force them to take it, But im sure the Drug Pushers dont want to see there own kids end up addicted to this stuff. So next time you think its funny about finding and getting rich, think of how many families are distraught over this substance abuse. The few families that know about it support it because of fear of there own drug pusher kids, so we sit back and say that his mother know about so and so, then we wonder why they dont kick these Drug Pushers kids out of the family home, but if you report them to the police the police will tell the drug pusher "what kind mother you have that would report you to the police". Well mr babylon, the kind that reports there kids is the ones that care and want to see them help through the legal system. Some mothers will tell you they prefer to know there kids are locked up in Northward , safe and sound , than to be dreading those after midnight calls. COKE IS NO JOKE.

    If this huge amount of drugs are washing up on our shores one can only wonder how much drugs and other items actually makes it here illegally?

  9. put that in your pipe and smoke it says:

    10 mil… That could help balance the budget or help our churches pastors buy new rims for their mercs or put solar pannels on a lot of roofs or help build the nation or send our MLA's on lots of extravagant trips…
