North Side political hopeful, radio talk show host and former Cayman Islands electricity regulator Joey Ebanks has been charged with “drug offences”, according to a press release issued Thursday by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.
According to the release: “The 49-year-old man who was arrested in the Pedro area on 6 March on suspicion of abuse of office, theft and possession of a drug utensil, has been now charged with drug offences. [The release does not specifically identify Mr. Ebanks by name, but it was Mr. Ebanks who was arrested in that location last month.]
“The man, who appeared in court last week on multiple charges of deception, forgery and theft, was charged by officers of the Financial Crime Unit Thursday with one count of consumption of cocaine and one count of possession of a drug utensil.
“He has been bailed to appear in court on Friday 3 May.”
Mr. Ebanks is challenging North Side incumbent Ezzard Miller in the upcoming 22 May general election.
On his Facebook page Friday morning, Mr.
Ebanks posted: “I have just now been arrested again and will now be given bail.
