Police reportedly nab Purcell Estate man with cocaine, marijuana

Not the cocaine mentioned in the story

A 56-year-old man has been taken into custody on cocaine and marijuana charges.

Charged with two counts of unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply is Junior Bradford Prince of Purcell Estate.

Police allegedly held Prince with more than 12 grams of cocaine during a stop-and-search operation last week, according to the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF).

“A subsequent search warrant carried out on his premises resulted in the seizure of over a kilo-and-a-half of cocaine and a quantity of marijuana,” said the RVIPF’s Information Unit today, June 18.

Investigations are still ongoing in the matter.

In the meantime, Prince is scheduled to appear in the Magistrate’s Court today.

      One person in no way indicates an “immigration backlash”. Immigrants are the only reason BVI has an active economy in banking and tourism. You made a nationalistic statement based upon a person’s origin. We call that racism and facism in the rest of the world. Be ashamed. Immigrants aren’t all bad because of a single person.
