American supermodel Gigi Hadid recently made headlines when news broke of her arrest for possession of cannabis while on vacation in the Cayman Islands. Reports from multiple media outlets confirm that the 28-year-old model was taken into custody at Owen Roberts International Airport on July 10 after arriving in the Cayman Islands via a private plane with a friend.
According to E! News, local outlet Cayman Marl Road reported that customs officials discovered “ganja and utensils used for the consumption of ganja” in Hadid and her friend’s luggage during a routine search. Following the discovery, both individuals were arrested on suspicion of importation of ganja and importation of utensils used for the consumption of ganja.
After their arrest, Hadid and her friend were taken to the Prisoner Detention Centre, where they were released on bail. It was revealed that the quantities of marijuana and related equipment found in their luggage were minimal and appeared to be for personal use.
