$4 MILLION IN DRUGS CONFISCATED

As the result of a drug seizure Wednesday, $4 million worth of illegal drugs are off the streets of the Virgin Islands.
Federal agents and local police officers confiscated 360 pounds of marijuana and 324 pounds of cocaine from No. 65 Agnes Fancy.
No arrests were made during the raid, primarily because no one was at the residence when the agents descended on it.
The anti-drug initiative was carried out by FBI agents and officers in the Safe Streets Task Force, which includes local police, FBI agents and federal marshals.
An FBI spokeswoman said the raid was one of the largest that her agency has been involved in in the territory. The agents were acting on information that "drug trafficking activity was taking place at No. 65 Agnes Fancy," the press statement said.
The confiscated drugs are being kept in FBI custody in a secure facility in Puerto Rico, the release noted.
