BASSETERRE, St Kitts (WINN) — A joint law enforcement operation in St Kitts netted one kilo of cocaine on Tuesday.
The person arrested for the bust is reportedly a female native of Trinidad, who recently arrived in the Federation for a few days.
The bust reportedly took place at a guesthouse in Basseterre where the woman was staying.
Police confirmed that the drugs were found when a search warrant was executed on the room of the establishment at which the woman stayed.
Several taped packages of cocaine were hidden in a secret compartment in the suitcase the woman arrived with.
The woman was taken into custody on Tuesday; however, no charges had been laid up to press time on Thursday.
