On the night of December 2 to 3, 2018 in Saint-Martin, a ship carrying 285 kg of cocaine was intercepted by the Coast Guard brigade (DF24) in the bay of Grand-Case. One of the individuals on board is arrested and placed in police custody while two other individuals manage to flee.
The investigations carried out by the detachment of the Saint-Martin Research Section in co-referral with OCRTIS make it possible to locate one of the accused in mainland Guadeloupe. On January 29, 2019, he was spotted in the Gosier sector. He will kill himself to escape his arrest.
A vast judicial operation was then launched simultaneously in Guadeloupe and Saint-Martin. It led to the arrest of eleven individuals and gave rise to the seizure of several vehicles, boats and large cash sums in cash.
Four people are placed in pre-trial detention. The judicial information opened with the specialized inter-regional Jurisdiction of Fort-de-France (972) continues.
