Arrests Made For Drug Offenses Following Altercation with Police
At about 10:00PM on Sunday, 14 March, officers responded to a report of suspicious activity on Ashgo Street in George Town. Whilst investigating, officers approached two men and a juvenile standing near a vehicle.
One of the men violently resisted arrest and assaulted the officers, who deployed OC spray and were able to carry out the arrest. Subsequently, two officers were transported to the Cayman Islands Hospital for treatment and subsequently released.
Following the arrests, the vehicle was searched and officers recovered suspected cocaine and ganja, along with drug paraphernalia. The men, ages 21 of West Bay and 22 of George Town, and the juvenile, were further arrested on suspicion of consumption and possession of ganja with intent to supply, and possession and consumption of cocaine. The 21-year-old was also arrested for resisting arrest and assaulting police.
The two men remain in custody as investigations continue.
