CHARLOTTE AMALIE, St Thomas, USVI- A former [U.S.] V.I. Port Authority officer and current Kenneth E. Mapp administration security detail, serving as a security guard for Juel Molloy, was apprehended at the Cyril E. King Airport on St Thomas, US Virgin Islands on Saturday September 3, 2016, multiple sources with knowledge of the incident have told this publication.

A veritable federal source, who’s made available breaking information to The Consortium in the past, verified the info, telling us that Neal Chesterfield was arrested late Saturday with about 25 grams of cocaine.

Over $10,000 was also found in his possession.

[U.S] V.I.P.D. Commissioner Delroy Richards said Saturday night that he’d heard of an arrest, but could not comment on the matter, as the Police Department had not made an arrest. An email sent to U.S. Attorney Ronald Sharpe was not returned at time of writing.

Mr. Chesterfield, who was assigned to Government House by former Governor John P. de Jongh, had only in June gotten married, and the couple are expecting twins, according to people close to the family. These people said the news of his arrest came as a surprise to many, and described him as a good man.

Mr. Chesterfield, who has a home in Florida, was attempting to board a flight on Spirit Airlines when he was apprehended, according to these sources.
