Man arrested with $100,000 cash & undocumented passengers

This newsroom has since been reliably informed, there was a total of three persons on board the ‘fast boat,’ including the captain (whose name, photo, age and place of work we have but will withhold at this time, since the man is yet to be formally charged with an offence). Photo: Internet Source
WEST END, Tortola, VI - Police and Customs Authorities have reportedly detained a young Virgin Islander, who is alleged to have landed—via a go fast boat—on the western side of Tortola on Monday, June 25, 2018, with $100,000 cash, and two undocumented passengers.

According to reports reaching Virgin Islands News Online, the boat captain never checked in with Customs and Immigration, as such, he would have illegally entered the Territory.

This newsroom has since been reliably informed, there was a total of three persons on board the ‘fast boat,’ including the captain (whose name, photo, age and place of work we have but will withhold at this time, since the man is yet to be formally charged with an offence).

The other two passengers were also arrested on suspicion of being undocumented immigrants but gave St Croix, United States Virgin Islands (USVI) addresses. 

Their confirmed nationalities are unclear at this time but Virgin Islands News Online will provide an update as details emerge, as Law enforcement investigations are ongoing.
