| 13/03/2024

(CNS) UPDATED FRIDAY: Two Jamaican men aged 38 and 59 who were arrested following an interception at sea by the coastguard earlier this week have been charged with the importation of Ganja. The men appeared in court Thursday and were remanded in custody until their next appearance at the end of the month. Both men were also arrested at the time for importing exotic birds but the men were not charged with that offence.

ORIGINAL STORY: Cayman Islands Coast Guard officers on patrol at about 10:00pm on Tuesday, 11 March, intercepted a grey and blue vessel with two people onboard who appeared to be engaged in criminal activity.

According to a press release from the RCIPS, both occupants were arrested on suspicion of importing ganja and importing exotic birds, which are understood to be parrots. They have since been handed over to the RCIPS for further investigation.
