ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The purity test for some $2.5M worth of cocaine is yet to be done in the case involving Lester DeCastro, self employed mechanic and Isaac Caena, who are facing drug related charges.

During a court appearance last week, Crown Counsel Leslie Ann Faulkner told the court that while a preliminary test was done, the actual test was not completed.

To this end, Magistrate Tamia Richards adjourned the matter to March 14, 2012 when the Crown will give an update.

DeCastro and Caena made headlines last November when they allegedly threw packages of cocaine worth $2.8M in the sea near Brewers Bay when they allegedly spotted law enforcement officers on November 1, 2011.

The duo is charged with conspiracy to import cocaine, importation of cocaine and possession of cocaine with intent to supply.

They have both secured legal counsel.
