No charges after alleged drug find! Ferry captain and crew released pending further investigation

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.

    @Dan especially those morbidly obese women and men, they need to tax these fat people in the territory higher than others, they are a problem to our health care system, if they smoke marijuana maybe they would be able to get up off their fat a$$es and walk, do something with their sluggish behind, all they want to do is eat, most of them are always on a see food and eat diet.
    I hate fat people especially the women, they always smell stinks like sour milk.

    This is how the drugs are moved. The ferries load the suitcases, boxes, and items to transported. Then one or more is kept aboard until the end of day. This is then unpacked and distributed to crew personal baggage. Customs is paid off to look away.

    Nothing new. Been happening for years. ****cop just got lucky
