Reports from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) are that just after 11:30 AM on Tuesday (April 28) officers from the Department of Environment were on patrol in the area when they came across a torn duffle bag containing taped packages.
Police attended the location and took possession of twenty (20) parcels believed to contain cocaine, weighing just over 52lbs.
The parcels are believed to carry a value of approximately $350,000.00 CI.
An extensive search of the affected shoreline was carried out by land-based officers, the police helicopter, and Cayman Islands Coast Guard, to ensure that no other packages had come ashore.
The contents of the packages were subsequently destroyed at the landfill with the assistance of the Department of Environmental Health.
