ROAD TOWN, Tortola — British Virgin Islands police are investigating an incident in which marijuana was discovered in boxes of baby products that were imported into the territory last week.

The police report that the packages entered the country late last week through a well known multi-national courier service.

They say customs officers at the Terrence B. Lettsome International Airport received the packages and on inspecting the items, the drug was found.

The marijuana was compressed and hidden in products such as diapers.

No arrests have been made in connection with the find.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
