47 ganja plants seized and man arrested after tip-off

Police seized 47 mature ganja plants at a location on Cayman Brac and later arrested a man after a tip-off.

On May 29, officers conducted an operation under the Misuse of Drugs Law at a location in the vicinity of Songbird Meadows, acting on information that ganja was being cultivated in the area.

During the operation, 47 mature ganja plants were recovered. As a result, a 60-year-old Cayman Brac man was later arrested on suspicion of cultivating ganja.

A search was later conducted at the man’s residence at a separate location and a small portion of ganja seized. The male was warned for prosecution for possession and consumption of ganja.

The man has been bailed as investigations continue.
