Wanted man arrested

A former prison inmate that police have been searching for since mid-April on suspicion of entering the Cayman Islands illegally has been arrested.

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, working in conjunction with Customs officers and the Department of Immigration, apprehended the wanted man, 36-year-old Marlon Crowe, on Thursday morning.

He was found at an address on Frank Sound Road, arrested and taken into custody. A second man, age 30 of Bodden Town, was arrested at the same location on suspicion of harboring a fugitive.

Both men remained in custody by press time.

The police issued a request for public assistance in the search for Mr. Crowe on April 16.

The suspect, a Jamaican national, was deported from Cayman in October 2017 after serving a sentence for conspiracy to import 194 pounds of ganja to Cayman. He is believed to have returned to Cayman illegally earlier this year.
