RCIPS recover 2nd major Brac cocaine haul


Pin It

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) have recovered another huge haul of what is believed to be cocaine on Cayman Brac on the south side of the island.

The haul consists of the same size packages that washed up between the Brac Reef and the Divi Tiara resorts more than one week ago,

It was discovered on Monday (29 April ) evening at around 6:45pm by customs officers, who alerted the police when they spotted the suspected drugs. The twenty-five packages measure around 8”x6”x2” and in total weigh around 60lbs, similar to the hail found on the island on Saturday 20 April. The packages are now in the hands of the police, who said they are carrying out forensic testing.

The drugs have an estimated street value of at least $3 million dollars. Combined with the previous batch of a similar value which washed up earlier this month, the loss of more than $6 million will be a significant issue to whichever drug group was involved in the shipment of the contraband.

Anyone who has any information about the drugs, or of any drugs activity in the Cayman Islands, is asked to contact the Drugs and Serious Crime Task Force on 949-4222, the RCIPS Tip-line 949-7777 or Cayman Crime Stoppers on 800-8477(TIPS).
