Parcels washed up on the shores of Little Cayman

(CNS): Between Friday and Sunday (20-22 October) the police recovered five packages containing what is suspected to be ganja along the shoreline of Little Cayman. After the police were notified by members of the public on the island that parcels had washed ashore, officers on the ground, helped by the RCIPS helicopter crew, conducted extensive searches around Little Cayman’s coastline and collected the parcels, which together totalled around 80lbs.

Thanking the public for notifying them about the parcels, the police said they are now seeking help in trying to find their source. But they gave no indication that they were aware of any suspicious vessels in the area before the parcels were recovered.

Anyone with information that could assist the police is asked the call CBPS at 948-0331. They can also contact the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777 or Crime Stoppers at 800-TIPS (8477) to remain anonymous.

    Keep cruising over salt water at that height and you will pay a dear price in corrosion damage. Of course its not your money so why would you care. Show boating for the cameras perhaps?

      I was thinking the same when I saw that pic. I hope they gave her a good bath with salt away when they got home.

        Any cannabis could have been transported by car to the airport for the chopper to collect. There is litterally zero reason for them to be flying that close to salt water.

    Shipment can only come if there is a demand for it. Its about time we amend our marijuana legislation.

    Well not surprised. I am sure criminals keep spreading word that there is minimal law enforcement in Cayman and low changes of being caught. Perhaps time to start weeding criminals out from top down instead of from the bottom up?

    I wish that Cayman was like the people of Little Cayman , sounds like they are not taking any of it from drug smugglers or criminals .

      Cigarettes completely legal and fine, but somehow marijuana is a drug. If we are against all drugs at least be consistent ban alcohol and cigarettes too. We can pick and choose what substances to like or not but it just makes us hypocrites.

        Why would they ever legalize the herb? Hmm.. the outcome –

        Create jobs in agriculture by allowing local farmers to grow the herb and selling it at licensed and regulated dispensaries,

        remove the major incentive for illegal boats coming over,

        reduce the rate of ruining young people’s lives by giving them a criminal record / conviction over a spliff,

        and create a new revenue system for government by taxing sales?

        Lol no, makes too much sense to do. Enjoy your more harmful and addictive tobacco cigs, though.

          @Charles Darwin you and I both know they are too scared to get voted out by the fundamentals, give them till the next election by then I’m quite sure that they will begin having discussions at the very least. Slowly but surely Cayman is beginning to be influenced by the up and coming generations, the old ways are dying off (metaphorically and literally).

          I know if I personally was an elected official currently I would be pushing for a large referendum covering multiple topics that are relevant to Cayman today, Establishing a second house in the LA (for a multitude of reasons, gonna try to write a VP on this topic when I get some free time, hopefully CNS will post). The legality of marijuana, Plans for cruise facilities in town, Marriage laws and legal discrimination, certain Constitutional missteps regarding an specific groups and persons, Environmental directives ( focusing on conservation), self defense and the possession of items to that effect ( leaving guns out of that conversation because sometimes the majority as a group doesn’t make the best decisions, it’s called mob/herd mentality) and a myriad of other topics.

          For such a small community our legislators seem to spend most of their time in the LA chasing their tails instead of doing the people’s work, they lack the clear political direction of other jurisdictions. Considering the political parties are two sides of the same coin that don’t like each other it isn’t surprising that people are unhappy with the election results basically all the time.

          I’ve had a good amount of tourists asking if we have such a place to buy it legally, because we’re an island in the Caribbean. Imagine the boost tourism would get.. Look at Colorado’s tax revenue boost after legalizing. People from all over the world have traveled there for their next vacation just because they know they can relax with a joint legally instead of getting drunk.

            They would rather continue to have the arbitrary moralistic policing and puritanical society than create another revenue stream for the islands. Wonder what the results would be of a mandatory MLA drug test…

    This can be turned into a substantial volume of cannabis oil. Why can this be made into oil at secure lab facility in Cayman instead of it being burned at the dump incinerator? Our forensic lab has the equipment to assure its quality.

    Oh I forgot the RCIPS need to stock pile it again then allow it to be secretly stolen and put back into circulation. What a waste.
