The police have arrested two individuals on drug charges in an operation several miles off the coast of Roseau.
The operation netted some 100,000 grams of cocaine.
According to Police PRO Inspector John Carbon, the illegal substance was found when members of the the Coast Guard, Customs and Drug Squad personnel of the Marine Unit intercepted an open keel boat at 10:30 pm on Thursday.
The boat, named “Just In Time”, was powered by two 200 HP engines.
The police have not released the names the individuals who were arrested.
Sources told DNO the cocaine is worth between EC $ 3-5 million.
Meanwhile members of the Drug Squad uprooted and destroyed 11,744 cannabis trees in the heights of Carholm in an operation on Thursday.
One man is being sought in connection with that operation, the police say.
