Man arrested on suspicion of drugs possession on Little Cayman

A 48-year-old-man has been arrested on suspicion of possession of cocaine and suspicion of possession of ganja near a liquor-licensed establishment on Little Cayman.

This arrest was made just before 4:30pm on Saturday (April 13) as a result of officers making checks at the establishment and observing a man acting suspiciously.

When police approached the man, they saw him throw something away. The officers retrieved the object, which was a plastic wrapper containing a powdery substance believed to be cocaine.
