CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) -- Federal agents and
police in the U.S. Virgin Islands have seized a haul of cocaine
worth about $16 million at a house on St. Thomas.
A Tuesday statement from U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement says officers found 531 kilograms of cocaine, some
marijuana and two pistols.
Authorities have not disclosed more details about the raid other
than to say there were no arrests.
Over the last six weeks, federal agents in the U.S. Virgin
Islands and Puerto Rico have seized more than 2,250 kilograms of
cocaine with a street value of roughly $67 million.
The neighboring U.S. territories serve as a transit route for
South American cocaine en route to the U.S.
