Junior Bradford Prince, 56, of Purcell Estate was charged with two counts of unlawful possession of cocaine with intent and one count of unlawful possession of marijuana, police reported on Monday.
A stop-and-search operation late last week by the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force Armed Response Unit lead to the seizure of 12 grams of cocaine and the arrest of Mr. Prince, who was in his vehicle at the time.
Police said a subsequent search warrant carried out on his premises resulted in the seizure of more than 1.5 kilograms of cocaine and a quantity of marijuana that they did not specify.
Mr. Prince was scheduled to appear in Magistrates’ Court on Monday. Investigations continue in the matter.
