Cocaine shipments wash ashore in Brac, Grand Cayman

For the third time within 17 days, a substance suspected to be cocaine weighing around 60 lbs. and wrapped into 25 separate packages has washed up in the Cayman Islands.

Monday’s haul, found on the beach in North Side district, Grand Cayman, was discovered around 1.45pm on 6 May.

According to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, officers received a report that a bag had been found on the beach off Old Robin Road containing wrapped plastic packages with a combined weight of about 61 lbs.

The packages will undergo forensic testing.

The find in North Side comes about a week after a package of cocaine washed ashore in Cayman Brac.

The RCIPS reported in late April that a number of wrapped packages, suspected to be cocaine, washed up on Cayman Brac Monday evening, 29 April . The packages were reported to police around 6.45pm Monday.

It was reported that 25 packages had been found washed up on the iron shore in Southside, Cayman Brac. The finder alerted customs officers who, in turn, contacted the RCIPS. The packages all measure approximately 8”x 6”x2” and have a combined weight of around 60lbs.

Police seized more than 60lbs. of cocaine in the Brac on 20 April as well.

That seizure also involved 25 packages containing 61 pounds of white powder resembling cocaine. Those drugs were also found on a beach on the south side of the Island.
