Jamaican drug smugglers remanded in Cayman

Four Jamaicans who were arrested and charged last week following the seizure of  513 pounds of  ganja in Cayman were remanded until September 25 when they appeared in court on Monday.
They were nabbed 27 miles east of  Grand Cayman.
Crown counsel Greg Walcolm told Magistrate Adam Roberts that the police had video footage of  the four Jamaicans offloading a boat. They have been identified as 32 year old Martin Anthony Trench; 31 year old Kendale Jerome Straumann, 33 year old Andre Junior Russell and 45 year old Basil Anthony Smith. 
Mr. Trench is from Hanover and the other three from Westmoreland.
A police news release issued on Friday indicated that officers of  the Air Operations and Joint Marine Units were conducting border patrols when they observed men on a boat throwing packages overboard. The packages were retrieved and the men taken into custody.
