Traveler Arrested at Cyril E. King Airport for Possession of Cocaine

News / Virgin Islands / October 28, 2019

ST. THOMAS — United States Attorney Gretchen C.F. Shappert for the District of the Virgin Islands announced today that Aubrey Meyers was arrested at the Cyril E. King Airport in St. Thomas for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

According to court documents filed in the case, on Sunday Meyers was attempting to travel from St. Thomas to Orlando, Florida. He was questioned by Customs and Borders Protection officials, and a search of his luggage revealed five clear plastic bags containing cocaine.

This case is being investigated by U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement – Homeland Security Investigations. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Nathan Brooks and Adam Sleeper.

A criminal complaint is merely a charging document, and it is not evidence of guilt. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
