Cops seize 185lbs ganja

| 28/09/2013

(CNS): Marine unit officers patrolling the Sister Islands intercepted a drug canoe off the coast of Cayman Brac last night. The police seized around 185lbs of ganja and arrested seven people. Three Caymanian nationals and four Jamaican nationals are currently detained in police custody after the drug laden boat was spotted at about 9:35 last night, Friday 27 September. The officers were aboard the Guardian on routine patrols when they came across the canoe and triggered a land and sea operation involving officers from Cayman Brac Police Station, Special Constabulary, Drugs and Serious Crime Task Force and the Immigration Department.

The successful operation resulted in the seven men being arrested, a second boat, as well as two motor vehicles and the drug haul being seized.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Drugs and Serious Crime Task Force at 949-7710.Information can also be passed via the RCIPS tip-line 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers on 800-8477 (TIPS).

    And if marijuana were legalized, we would have made a fortune on taxes, save 1000's on the police efforts, reduced crime and everybody would be happy, except the dealers.

    But for some religious reason we don't . . . . . .

    O my my, ganja on the Brac -what is the world coming to!!!!  Drug canoes regularly use Brac as drop off – all you got to do is look for certain people from Grand Cayman to be on the Brac – XXXX  and then connect the dots.         There you go case solved

    Us Caymanians are really going to feel this.  Prices will rise and I fear we may even go dry for up to a week.

    And who's saying the RCIP aren't doing a good job.  Thank you RCIP.  Despite the criticism, you still do your jobs with pride.  If many of those who criticize you all had to take the risks you do, live with the stress that you do, work the hours you do, they would sing a different tune.  Thank you for doing a thankless job.  There are those of us law abiding citizens who appreciate what you do.

    If Cayman would wake up and realise the economic value of decriminalization or legalisation of cannabis then we'd spend much less on our prisons, police force and more on other areas like Education & Health Care.  It's a plant that has never directly killed anyone, yet cigarettes and alcohol kill millions every year.

    Boy that is a major haul deh? Bigg up the RCIPS If you sold that you would just have enough money for fuel and food and accomodation at the Alexandra hotel for a couple of days. The sisters islands has alway been a transhipment point for drug traffickers but 185 lbs is not even a drip drop in a glass of water but i guess some will milk this for every little drop of publicity they can get these days might even get special mention by our premier as proof of his fictionally crime strategy. Stiil Kudos to Boys for a job well done!
