On Sunday 13 November, around 12.30AM, while conducting ongoing targeted operations, police identified a type of vehicle commonly associated with robberies, and a driver acting suspiciously in the vicinity of the Reflections liquor store on Maclendon Drive.
The driver attempted to avoid police, however the vehicle was intercepted on Crewe Road.
A search was conducted and a quantity of cash found on his person along with packaged drugs found in the trunk of the vehicle. Receipt books commonly associated with gambling were also recovered from the car. The man’s home address was searched under drugs legislation.
The man, a 35 year-old of West Bay, was arrested for Possession With Intent to Supply and Driving While Disqualified.
Leading into the weekend, targeted police operations will continue in their efforts to address the issue of serious crime in the Cayman Islands. The public is advised to expect to see vehicle check points, armed patrols and heightened police visibility.
