Police hunt for ‘dangerous’ illegal Jamaican

Marlon Crowe

(CNS): Police are seeking the help of the public to track down Marlon Crowe (36) from Jamaica, who is described as dangerous and believed to be in the Cayman Islands illegally. Crowe was deported last October after serving more than half of a 34-month prison term for drug smuggling. Crowe was one of three men caught with nearly two hundred pounds of ganja after the RCIPS Joint Marine Unit found them drifting some 20 miles off the coast of East End. After the men were arrested and the ganja seized, the police also found a handgun hidden in the drug haul.

However, there was no evidence that the men had packed the ganja or knew anything about the weapon. With no forensics to link any of them, they dodged the more serious firearm charges.

Police have not said when or how Crowe returned to the island but believe he has recently landed here illegally. Officers said that anyone who sees Crowe should exercise caution as he could be potentially dangerous.

The police should be notified immediately at George Town Police Station at 949-4222. Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777, the Miami-based call centre of Crime Stoppers at 800-8477(TIPS), or online here.

    Yes 2:01am but the most unusual aspect about this terrible drug situation is the Rcips inability to catch and arrest them.The only police operations we hear or see or read about seem to target locals or Jamaican only Yes and you know what is even more peculiar is the Top echelon of the Rcips are mostly foreign too???? Drug convictions precludes locals from getting jobs too .Food for thought Cayman food for thought Cayman??

    Yas bo they luv dat stuff bad biggest cocaine & ganja hogs around this place is dem and they bring their bad habits and drug addictions and friends wid them too,but so long as we keep following this bull$#[email protected] government work permit addiction and mantra about their here for us and allowing their well placed countrymen and women to hire them and deny locals the opportunity. This terrible drug & crime situation will continue because of their insatiable appetite for drugsI bet you one dam thing that’s not part of their crime strategy they keep touting about town eh Alden? What a disgrace this unity government’s immigration policies are Which are in some instances are actually fueling crime in several ways in Cayman. Simple lessen demand by reducing consumers.

      The war on drugs is a lost cause. Legalize it and use the money for a treatment facilitie to offer help to those that can’t help themselves. Is there even a rehab on this island?!

        It must be a lost cause 1.35 pm when you cannot charge a ganja smuggler with a gun hidden in the weed for illegal importation of a firearm because it “could not be proven that he packed it”. The old saying that “The law is an ass.” surely must apply here! The next time I am found with contraband in my suitcase, my lawyer will argue that “The defendant did not pack it,” LOL where does this crap come from? No, let’s not go there today.

    Unfortunately, someone has to supply our “many British or Canadian or American” visitors and residents with their insatiable demand for illicit substances.

    You seem to have missed the correlation between the increase of the presence of certain groups with that of the rate of the importation of drugs … and unsavory characters like this chap.

    Anyway, it is always nice to be missed. How you doing?

    – Who

    * For clarity, none of the above negates the fact that Britain has proven herself to be an enemy of the Cayman Islands time and again.

    (Btw, I trust your anger and disdain for all things Whodatis allow you to understand the difference between “Britain” and “British people”.)

      But then you have people like whodatis beating their gums all the time about the real enemy being Britain….probably just because some hidjut over there made a disparaging racist remark to him and the poor old snowflake cannot recover from it. Not many British or Canadian or American people are smuggling drugs and killing here and making life terrible for us. It’s the thugs from the West Indies and Central America. And yes, Whodatis, we know the others are sometimes guilty of white collar crime…..and should be locked up for it….but most of us would rather that sort of crime than the vicious potentially life threatening West Indian and Central American sort.

        Maybe not smuggling but consuming. They create the demand which must be supplied. Economics 101!

          Amen and thank you. Never knew what an eight ball was till I hung out with professional expat lawyers and accountants in Cayman… mainly Canadians… and when their dealer walked in he was also Canadian XXXXXXXX it pulled that veil back a bit to see what’s up. One could consider it white-collar-drug crime. So yes… folks like this with disposable income to burn will continue to create the demand that’s being supplied by dealers walking right into their beachfront living rooms.

      • White collar criminals hurt us too buddy. says:

        Um, not to burst your bubble, but the white collar crimes committed by white professionals in this country are just as bad as the violent crimes, if not worse. The Rob Aspinals of this country (and there are many that just haven’t been caught like ol’ Rob was) severely damage our reputation as a reputable financial center, thereby putting Cayman’s entire financial industry, and thousands of jobs, in jeopardy.

    Rather than arrest these smugglers, how about dropping a large block of steel or concrete through the hull of the boat (from the helicopter) when located and leave them to their own devices. The word will get back that smugglers never arrive or return. That would make persons think twice before attempting this.

      The only way Alden will get anywhere close to a 60% cut in gun smuggling is if his government acknowledges the war on drugs has failed and, move forward in the legalisation of marijauna.

      Our government changed the misuse of drugs law to fit their own agenda and in doing so formulated another competitor in the drugs trade. We all know the smugglers will be out of business once there is no demand for supply..but the real question is, who else will suffer from the smuggling trade being ruined if we legalise or even decriminalise marijuana? The answers will shake this island to it’s roots.

    If they keep coming in on ganja boats, maybe the way to fix this is to legalize ganja? Now I’m no rocket surgeon, but I think this could help a lot.

    Let me guess… He arrived on a ganja boat from Jamaica. When will our incompetent representatives finally stop listening to the church and allow us to grow our own plants!?

    The boats will continue bringing people like him and weapons from Jamaica until we take the power away from the growers and runners. Legalization is the only way.

      The Church said what? God said to obey the laws of the land thats all. But he also said in Genesis 1:29 – And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which [is] upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which [is] the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. So it was the pagans who said that.

      They already smuggle guns and apparently fighting cocks too. Legalize gangs and they’ll switch to coke. Bottom line – criminals who see an opportunity to make easy money by smuggling will. Better idea is to make it economically unattractive – interception rate up, confiscation of vessels, major imprisonment terms.
