Not any of the cocaine mentioned in the story

Trinidad & Tobago authorities this week intercepted a US$2.9 million shipment of cocaine bound for Tortola.

Some 43.9 kilograms of the drug was reportedly found in a cargo holding facility in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

According to media reports out of the twin island republic, Trinidadian Customs officers discovered 40 bags of the drug packed among crates of bottled beverages.

It is further reported that the drugs were expected to depart Port of Spain for Tortola sometime today or on Saturday, May 26.

Authorities said no arrests were made in connection to the find. Meanwhile, a currency conversion shows that the drug found has a value of 20 million Trinidadian dollars.
