This information was disclosed by the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) moments ago.
“Police can confirm that as a result of a joint operation involving US authorities, RVIPF and local Customs officers, a boat was pursued into the Fort Recovery area in West End, Tortola and beached.
“A search by law enforcement has uncovered a significant quantity of suspected cocaine in the nearby waters,” the RVIPF said in a brief statement to the local media.
It noted that one person is in custody.
“No other information is available at this time. Investigations continue.”
Meanwhile, Police Commissioner Michael B. Matthews had also confirmed the incident, commenting to Virgin Islands News Online (VINO) that “It’s another significant drugs seizure.”
If the grass is greener on the other side, you can bet the water bill is higher.
