Police have charged 29-year-old Deron Walters of Fat Hogs Bay on Tortola following the seizure of 14 blocks of cocaine, which the law enforcers said has a street value of $1.5 million.

He is charged with unlawful possession of cocaine, unlawful possession of cocaine with intent to supply, unlawful possession of marijuana, and resisting arrest.

According to police, the cocaine was found during a search of Walters’ vehicle in Baughers Bay yesterday morning, March 16.

Commissioner of Police Michael Matthews noted that the police officers were simply on patrol when they made the find.

β€œIt is the extra efforts of my officers that brought about this discovery, since they were just on patrol in the area when the suspect was met and questioned. He [allegedly] became verbally abusive and, as a result, he and his vehicle were searched. I commend the officers for their diligence,” he said.

Investigations are ongoing in the matter, added the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force.

      Its street value meaning the est value when broken down to the smallest form for street sale.

      They didnt say wholesale (by the key) value. Cook, cut etc to the bone for street sale and its over 1 mil in value easy and it never said street value in BVI it just says street value.

    Whether or not it was simple patrol or they’ve been watching him, I think it is good riddance.

    It’s time we as a community stand behind our police officers to clean up our community. Many of you (my generation especially – the 20 somethings) are having kids now and I’d hate to see their future destroyed because we pity people like colony who refuses to go out and get a “regular job” and work hard.

    No one should feel sorry for him! You must be a bold mother-you-know-what to be allegedly traveling through a main area in broad daylight with that much drugs after we had two murders and knowing the police are now out in numbers.

    I don’t feel an ounce of pity for him.

    It’s suppose to be 1.4mill street value. Dude above got 168 gran cause he counted it whole sale as in 12G’s a key 12,000 X 14 gives you $168,000.

    Street value goes by grams one (1) gram of coke goes for $100 in a key of coke there’s 100 grams

    Street value 1 key can get you $100,000 if you sell it by the gram…14X100,000 give you 1.4mill….just saying am good in maths…..not sure how they got 1.5 🀐

    The need becomes a greed. Young men hustlin’ m pimpin’. Hard work don’t land you before the law. Some people are an embarrassment to their family. Seize the time.

    Fellows when you know you are riding DIRTY please be respectful and courteous the the officers…by doing so one doesn’t have probable cause to search you without a warrant. When keeping it hood goes horribly wrong.

      Pocket change for one person might be suitcases for another.

    Not one positive comment so far and we wonder why the BVI have so much crime? ting to talk.

    No one is saying well done to the officers of the RVIPF for getting the drugs off the streets to save our people.

    Any well done guys continue doing your best to make tola saver.

    Trust you all to turn this into police corruption.

    This is as predictable as Trump sounding like an idiot.

    Why can’t you all celebrate the fact that drugs are off the street and someone has been held?!
