Caucasian visitors have been captured on local CCTV footage openly snorting what appears to be cocaine.
The visitors were seen committing the act while at a well-known beach facility on the island of Jost Van Dyke recently.
The eight-minute-long video shows three men consecutively snorting the suspected substance off the body of a woman who was lying on a beach chair.
After a minute elapsed in the video, a local male believed to be an employee at the beach facility approached the visitors and pointed to the live-recording CCTV camera. The employee’s efforts seemed to be an attempt to discourage and deter the suspected coke-sniffing vacationers.
As the video progressed, the visitors began to make jest that they were being recorded. They were seen pointing and waving to the camera, and before long, they resumed their reported illicit activities.
Nearly six minutes into the silent video, the aforementioned employee returned for the second time to have words with the group.
It is not clear whether local law enforcement has been made aware of the video or whether police made any subsequent arrests.
Over the years, there have been numerous reports of illicit drug possession and drug use in the territory.
Reports show that it is common among visitors and locals alike.
