Police make major drug bust during late-night operation

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) made a major drug bust in the territory on Friday, November 6.

In a brief statement to our news centre on Saturday, the Information Unit of the RVIPF said, “a large quantity of drugs was seized” during a late-night operation.

The RVIPF did not say what type of drugs were seized, the exact amount, or whether any arrests were made in connection to the seizure.

The law enforcers also neglected to say where in the territory the operation occurred.

“No other details can be provided at this time,” police said with no further explanation.

BVI News will provide more information when it becomes available.

    Tell the truth, you don’t want to say because it’s one of your fellow o*****rs, that drives around the j**+*s, there’s always something to it when they don’t want to give out much information.

      You are correct. Corruption within the department…

      Custom and immigration too. Seen it firsthand. Luggage from ferries is routinely let through uninspected by officers. Then placed into personal vehicles.

      Of course limited ferry traffic has created a shortage of drugs. More shootings as gangs lose money, vie for control of territory, and get desperate. Marine patrols have blocked smuggling too. So the third pillar of the economy, drugs, has been collapsing.

      But carry on.

      The day those in the legal system stop avoiding the pleas of the public regarding corruption, is the day a change would begin.

      They see the truth and it’s neither here nor there with them.

      It is not about protecting and serving the people …only protecting their colleagues….but it’s only a matter of time.

    Keep on this story BVI News. This will get swept under the rug if you don’t. There is a cesspool of corruption that goes both ways, Down and high up that needs to be exposed. Society will not see a difference if people don’t object to these corrupt behaviour. Things will only get worst if we continue to live this way, our children’s future depends on it. All the drugs and guns flooding the streets and these senseless murders. How soon before bullets start flying through your very own windows.
    Customs needs an investigation, how did so much drugs get into our ports if we supposedly have floating platforms out there and customs/police….at our ports of entry.
    This smells very very fishy and the news needs to ask the obvious questions.

  19. drug bust says:

    I assume the person/(s) arrested with drugs were fired on the spot… or perhaps a nice little suspension on full pay until it all goes away?
