Another GT ‘session’ busted

Another illegal street party was busted up in George Town over the weekend, with Royal Cayman Islands Police officers seizing alcohol and cash.

A 41-year-old man was arrested for allegedly allowing a home on Shedden Road to be used for illegal liquor sales.

The bust follows another police raid in October at a business on Sparkys Drive that was allegedly being used for an after-hours party known as a session.

Three people were arrested and liquor and cash were seized, along with a sound system, following the police raid in early October.

For several weeks beforehand, police said late-night festivities had been carried on at the premises of a business on Sparkys Drive during the overnight hours of Fridays and Saturdays.

Police confirmed in September during a meeting of the Liquor Licensing Board that they were aware of a mobile liquor license being used to cater street parties held late Friday and Saturday nights at the Sparkys Drive location.

It was claimed by other liquor licensees at the meeting that the weekend events often served liquor well past 3 a.m. – going to 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. some nights – and that the licensee wasn’t there to regulate the consumption of alcohol.

The three people arrested in October were taken into custody on suspicion of selling alcohol without a license and breaches of the territory’s music and dancing law.
