Several persons being questioned after ‘large’ cocaine seizure in EE

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) has seized a significant quantity of cocaine during an operation on the eastern end of Tortola.
The police did not specify the exact quantity but it said the operation was carried out on Tuesday morning.

In a press release issued today, the RVIPF said investigations are ongoing and several people have been interviewed in relation to the drug seizure.

The law enforcers did not release the names of the persons or indicate whether any charges have been laid.

“No other information can be released at the time,” the RVIPF stated.

The RVIPF’s press update comes less than 24 hours after our news centre reported that the brother of a prominent local businessman — who is also a high-ranking member of a government statutory body — was being held at the East End Police Station for a drug-related matter.
