Wrapped packages of what appeared to be ganja were found last weekend near 12 Mile Bank by boaters traveling in the area.
Royal Cayman Islands Police Marine Unit officers received a call from the boaters around 10 a.m. Saturday. Officers discovered 10 packages floating in the sea near 12 Mile Bank, which is due west of Grand Cayman.
The packages weighed a total of 77.6 pounds, according to police – making the estimated street value of the drugs around $280,000.
Marine police transported the packages to the George Town Police Station and shortly afterward they were destroyed at the landfill, police said.
