Just before 11:00 p.m. yesterday evening, 14 September, Joint Marine Unit officers on patrol off the eastern side of the Grand Cayman came upon a canoe from Jamaica; following a brief pursuit, during which packages were thrown overboard, the canoe was intercepted.
Three men were taken into custody on suspicion of importation, and a large number of packages were recovered. Caged roosters were also on board and confiscated. The three men, all from Jamaica, are currently in Police custody.
Note: Stock photos used. The boat is from another incident in Cayman waters.
