The men, age 34 of West Bay and 33 of George Town, who were arrested following a drug interdiction on Saturday morning, 14 September, have both been formally charged with Importation of Ganja and Possession of Ganja with Intent to Supply.

The men appeared in court this morning, 16 September. 

Just after 6:20AM this morning, Saturday 14 September, the Joint Marine Unit along with the Air Operations Unit were conducting maritime boarder patrols on the northeast coast of Grand Cayman, on board the Motor Vessel M.Luke when they came across a vessel with two men on board.

The captain of the vessel caught sight of the MV M.Luke and proceeded to speed off in the opposite direction. This aroused the suspicion of the officer who then followed the vessel with emergency lights and sirens. The vessel was stopped shortly after and searched by the officers present.

During the search of the vessel 8 large bags filled with packages containing ganja were located. The estimated weight is of over 400lbs which is believed to have a street value of $400,000 CI.

Both men, age 34 of West Bay and age 35 of George Town were arrested on suspicion of importation of ganja and other related offenses.

The men remain police in custody pending further investigations.
