ST. THOMAS, USVI - Aubrey Meyers was charged with possession of cocaine, United States Attorney Gretchen C.F. Shappert announced Friday.

The court filings allege that Meyers purchased a ticket for a flight leaving the Cyril E. King Airport in St. Thomas on October 27. At the airport, Meyers was referred to secondary inspection.

A search of his luggage uncovered five small clear plastic bags containing approximately 136 grams of a white powdery substance that tested positive for the presence of cocaine. 

This case is being investigated by Homeland Security Investigations. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Adam Sleeper.  

United States Attorney Shappert reminds the public that an information is merely a formal charging document and is not evidence of guilt. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless found guilty.
