Police recover 56 pounds of ganja floating in the ocean

On Tuesday, the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) received two separate community reports pertaining to packages that contained what was suspected to be ganja in two separate locations.

These were recovered by the RCIPS and Coast Guard 

At about 1 pm members of the Cayman Islands Coast Guard were alerted to and recovered a package that had been found in the waters off Andresen Road in West Bay, by members of the public. Upon realizing it might contain ganja, the persons turned the package over to Harbour Patrol officers, who contacted the Coast Guard. The package was found to weigh about 26lbs.

Shortly after 5.30 pm members of the public found a package floating in the waters off Rum Point Drive. The persons contacted 9-1-1, and officers attended the location and recovered four parcels containing suspected ganja, which weighed about 30lbs.

The RCIPS has commend the members of the public for doing the right thing and turning these packages over to the authorities, and advises anyone who discovers any package that may contain illegal substances, to do the same.
