Drug enforcement officials reportedly intercepted cocaine in a shipment of dried coconuts at the Hewenorra International Airport on Sunday.
The discovery was made around noon today, October 2, 2016.
The cocaine was detected in the coconuts moments before it was loaded onto a flight destined for the United Kingdom.
According to information received, the cocaine was detected during an inspection of the produce by drug enforcement officials.
A senior police source confirmed the incident with St. Lucia News Online but could not provide any details.
A reliable source at the airport has also confirmed the incident.
