According to court documents filed in the case, on Sunday, October 27th, 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.
