Three Dominicans arrested in Caribbean Sea operation

Kingston.– United States law enforcement officials said they had arrested three people and seized more than 900 kilogrammes of cocaine during  operations in the Caribbean Sea this week.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security  Investigations (HSI), together with the Caribbean Corridor Strike Force  (CCSF), said they had arrested three Dominicans for  drug trafficking, seized 918 kilograms of cocaine with an estimated  street value of more than US$22 million.

“In less than one month, HSI and its partners in the Caribbean  Corridor Strike Force have seized more than 2,000 kilograms of cocaine,” said Angel Melendez, acting special agent in charge of HIS.

“These seizures and related arrests are clear proof that HSI, along  with our state and federal partners, are vigilant and will not tolerate  the importation of illegal drugs into the United States through Puerto  Rico,” he added.
