Coast Guard Intercepts Vessel with Ganja; Three Men Being Sought

On Tuesday, 18 October, Cayman Islands Coast Guard officers, on patrol off the shore of East End, observed a suspicious vessel with three men aboard approaching the shore at high speed. When the Coast Guard vessel moved to intercept the suspicious vessel, the men abandoned it and fled onto the shore. They continued across the main road in the vicinity of Paradise Villas, East End, and escaped into nearby bushes.

The Air Support Unit, Firearms Response Unit, and other officers responded and conducted a search in the area where the males were last seen, however, the suspects were not located.

Checks of the vessel resulted in the recovery of several packages containing over 250lbs of suspected ganja, along with two firearms and a large amount of ammunition.

The matter is currently under investigation and efforts to locate the men who fled the vessel are ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Criminal Investigations Department at 949-4222.
