Just before 2:30AM on Saturday morning, 23 December, the Joint Marine and Air Operations Units intercepted a blue-and-white canoe within Cayman waters. Two men on board were arrested and a quantity of ganja seized. Shoreline, air and water checks were carried out later that morning but further parcels that may have been dumped overboard were not recovered.
Both men have been charged with Importation of Ganja. One man, age 48 of George Town, has also been charged with Human Smuggling. The second man, age 26 of Jamaica, has also been charged with Illegal Landing. Both are in court today, 27 December.
