Cocaine found on Jamaican national at the ORIA

Jamaican national Michael Palmer was remanded into custody Tuesday (13 November) after he appeared on possession and importation of approximately five lbs of cocaine charges.

The 30-year-old man was arrested on 9 November for drug offenses at the Owen Roberts International Airport.
According to a joint Customs and police statement on Tuesday Mr. Palmer arrived on a Cayman Airways flight from Kingston, Jamaica and was held at Owen Roberts International Airport with the drugs which were concealed in food product containers. Customs officers at the scene tested the containers’ contents and they said it was positive for cocaine. Police Commissioner Derek Byrne issued a statement saying, “This is a significant arrest and proves once again that by pooling our resources we are more effective in ensuring the national security of the Cayman Islands.”

Mr. Palmer was denied bail and he is set to appear back in court on 20 November.
