The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service has destroyed 130 pounds of ganja and two pounds of cocaine in Little Cayman by burning them at the government owned incinerator.
The substances were seized by officers from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service and Customs Department after washing ashore in Cayman Brac and Little Cayman over the last few months.
This destruction procedure is required to take place if and when the illegal substances are no longer needed as evidence by the courts.
During the burn security is of the utmost importance and an independent justice of the peace is required to be in attendance, checking the drugs as they leave their storage location and re-checking them when they reach the burn site. In the burning process all material is destroyed including the packaging or casing in which the substances were held.
