    Even Tourists can spear fish in the Bahamas. Caymanians can’t even catch a prup prup without having the helicopter circling over your head making noise and half a dozen DOE vehicles waiting on shore when you get back to see what you have in your boat.

    Daily patrols through the marine parks and replenishment zones and you will have the guns back in no time……or maybe just check the people that they were seized from in the first place…………

      9:16 alot of those poachers do their activities at night too! So DOE need to be on watch. Ultimately I think a few of those spearguns and parts will end up in the black market here on GCM. So customs might want to start scanning for possible suspects coming through.

      The worst part is that the strong (and wealthy) expat community on South Side is suffering the brunt of the burglaries as the thieves hit up their homes while they are away. Marl road has it that items get shipped to Jamaica for sale. Since an officer told me this when I went to report a burglary, I wonder if the RCIP know yet who these thieves are. Shouldn’t be hard.

    That shouldn’t even be news. You can’t have Spears guns on Cayman Brac and use them unless you want Erbin to bust you. You have to get up pretty early in the Morning to sneak a lobster there.

          Brac problems

          Its a lot of stealing going on in the Brac even the stores are stealing $12 for Mayonnaise $10. for a pack of bacon thin slice Gwaltney.

          The Watering place park is full of drug dealers and drunkards where is the sign for no Loitering.

          Liquor stores open before hours place your order at the park and he runs to his liquor store to get it.

          In the Brac you can get a work permit for someone let them work for other people and they have to pay you a set fee depending on the job.

          They are many in the Brac above law including you don’t throw stone in you live in a glass house.

          What happen to the man that was sexually molesting the kids did we hide that too?
