NORTH SOUND, Virgin Gorda, VI – A quantity of cocaine that was destined to land at North Sound, Virgin Gorda, in the Virgin Islands was this week intercepted by authorities in Trinidad and Tobago.

According to media reports (T&T Newsday), 16 packets of cocaine hidden in six buckets of Readymix Compound Cement destined for the VI, were seized at Queen’s Wharf, Port of Spain, on Wednesday, November 21, 2018, by Customs and Excise officers working closely with officers from the Organised Crime and Intelligence Unit (OCIU).

The cocaine was supposed to be received by a woman at North Sound, Virgin Gorda.

The buckets were found on a palette on the western side of the port and were about to be loaded onto a cargo ship named ‘Sea Elizabeth’ when the seizure took place.

Documents seized revealed that the sender of the drugs was from south Trinidad.

The information given on the documents also named the owner of a store in Debe, in south Trinidad.

    This business can be very lucrative and rewarding. Can also be very risky and depressing . This is the depressing and losing part of it.....Demand dictates... Stay away . The stress and risk is too much...

    with all the modern day electronic surveillance not to mention the highly paid informers: these days the same persons you conducting your drug transactions with is an undercover: this territory have mountains of social issues and rising political issues: I honestly understand the investment of money into tourism related developments but money have to be invested into national security such more effective border patrol measures: Our country continues to be used as a transshipment point for dope: however some of the dope ends circulating right in our territory and history have documented the killings over the same dope: our customs, our immigration and our police are not given the money to purchase boats to patrol the costal waters....we want areoplanes; we want bigger cruise ship faculties while the residents of this territory endure to many hardships: fix our country first: people have been visiting and people will continue to visit these beautiful Britain Virgin Islands......

    Too many well connected people here have a finger in the pie but nobody wants to stop the party. Old habits die hard when it's easy cash in bundles.
