Brac air and sea patrols find ganja

An undisclosed amount of ganja was found in the waters off Cayman Brac during police air and sea patrols last week. 

According to the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, the police helicopter and vessels from the Joint Marine Unit and HM Customs were deployed on Sept. 18-19 to conduct anti-smuggling patrols in the waters between Grand Cayman and the Sister Islands. 

The patrols covered waters between Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac, extending up to 60 miles east of Cayman Brac. 

Cayman Brac station commander Wendy Parchment said the patrols served to reassure Brac residents “because they demonstrate that we in the Sister Islands can look forward to robust support and response when smuggling activity is reported.”
