WEST END, Tortola, VI – Last night, January 6, 2015 sometime after 9:00pm when passengers finally landed on the shores of Tortola via Road Town Fast Ferry, they were all very frustrated, tired and upset at the delay but, according to several persons who spoke with this news site, it was no fault of the ferry service but that of Customs and Immigration in the US Virgin Islands.

According to them, the authorities in US Virgin Islands caused the ferry to delay since they seemed to have a particular interest in the husband of a woman who was found with heroin in her vagina in Santo Domingo.

“He went down this morning on one of the early boats and Customs held on to him. I was on that ferry trip too. When we ready to come back on the last trip we arrived around 4:00 – 5:00 pm on Tortola but we just reach (sometime after 9:00pm) because they took a whole heap of time to process he and I see they had him when we reach here so I don’t know what it is or was,” said a passenger last night.

This was the story of at least three other persons who this news site spoke with last night. The person they were referring to allegedly is the husband or partner of Elizabeth Testamark-Venesia, the woman who was held at a Santo Domingo airport with heroin stashed in condoms in her vagina on September 24, 2014.

The woman was identified as a resident of Tortola by Dominican Republic law enforcement personnel, something which was deemed as true as she was well known here.

Valiant efforts up to press time to contact officials of the USVI Customs Department have been futile.

    Herion stashed in condoms in her vagina? wow! the risks people take these days. The bible says that the love of money is the root of all evil. Just supposed that stuff had burst out inside of her? Did she ever stop to think about the deadly consequences her actions would have posed.
