ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Information reaching our newsroom from reliable sources is that HM Customs has detained a yacht docked at The Moorings.

Information is still sketchy, but sources confirmed the yacht is named ‘One Love’ and sailed from outside of the territory.

Commissioner of Customs Wade Smith declined to confirm or comment on our inquiries.

Police Information Officer, Diane Drayton said the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) has not received any reports regarding the detention of the yacht.

There is also information that a member of the yacht crew is expected to appear before a magistrate here in the Virgin Islands' court as there may be an issue where someone who was deported from the territory allegedly made a return under a different name.

Virgin Islands News Online will update our story as more information comes in.
