On Wednesday 22 April 2015, Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) was notified by fishermen, fishing near the 12 Mile Bank [7 miles west of Grand Cayman] of a suspicious package, they found, believed to be controlled drugs.

RCIPS Joint Marine Unit responded to location, inspected and took possession of 23 individually wrapped packages, (see attached image) which they suspect to be cocaine, similar in quantity and size found in East End recently. The packages were brought to shore, photographed and examined forensically.

Detective Superintendent Robert Scotland of the Drugs and Serious Crime Task Force said, “There is no evidence at this time to connect the drugs found near the 12 mile bank with those found in East End on the Saturday 11 April 2015, however US Law Enforcement were notified of the recent finds and the information was shared, with a view of identifying possible origins and destinations”.

Both parcels found in East End and 12 Mile Bank was destroyed by incinerator, late last week, RCIPS believes the packages street value was around CI $700.000.

RCIPs would like to commend the persons finding these packages and praise them for the responsible manner in which they acted by reporting the finds to the authorities in keeping illegal drugs off the streets, in the Cayman Islands.
