Police confirm that on Friday, 24 May, officers approached two men at an address on West End Road, Cayman Brac, who appeared to be acting suspiciously. One of the men was observed to be in possession of receipt books used in illegal gambling. Officers searched both men and found a large quantity of cash and several other receipt books in the possession of the first man.
The man, age 70 of Cayman Brac, was subsequently arrested on suspicion of illegal gaming and possession of criminal property. The second man was warned for intended prosecution for illegal gaming (buying lottery tickets).
Following further investigation a warrant was executed and a search of the first man’s home was conducted. Additional cash and gambling paraphernalia were recovered at the location. In total, over $3000 in CI and US cash was seized.
The man has been bailed while investigations continue.
