Local law enforcement authorities have released the captain and crew of a local ferry company that had been arrested in connection to a marijuana find on Wednesday.
Reports are that an undisclosed amount of cannabis was discovered aboard their vessel.
When asked if they were released on bail, Police Information Officer Akia Thomas said no.
She told our news centre no criminal charges have been laid against them.
“The investigation is ongoing. They have been released pending further investigations,” she stated.
The full circumstances of the alleged incident are not yet known to our news centre but matters involving controlled substances such as marijuana typically attract charges such as possession of a controlled drug, among other things.
The reported bust was undertaken by officers of Her Majesty’s Customs, BVI News understands.
