Dominican arrested in U.S. Virgin Islands with cocaine worth $6 million
CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands -- Federal authorities say they have seized 228 kilograms (502 pounds) of cocaine during a traffic stop in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

U.S. officials say St. Croix police officers stopped a Dominican national Sunday while he drove in the town of Christiansted. Officers allege a search of the car turned up seven large bags in the back seat and trunk holding cocaine.

Authorities say the drugs had an approximate street value of more than $6 million.

A statement Monday from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency identifies the suspect as Miguel Pascual, a Dominican who lives on the nearby U.S. island of Puerto Rico. It was not immediately clear if Pascual has a lawyer.
