Local law enforcement has seized a large number of drugs that were found concealed among bags of cement on Tortola.
“Three pallets containing 200 bags of Thinset were discovered and searched and 44.20 kilograms of cocaine was recovered and seized,” police said in a media release on Tuesday.
The drugs were found aboard the motor vessel, Krautsand, in Purcell Estate Tortola last Thursday, July 18.
The discovery was the result of a joint operation between the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force and Her Majesty’s Customs.
There are no reports of any arrests in connection with the find, BVI News understands.
“Inquiries are ongoing in this matter,” police have said.
