    I’m so sorry that Luz got caught up in something like this. No one is perfect and of course no one is above the law but she is truly a very sweet person and she does have a good heart. Good People make poor decisions everyday, and sometimes you get away and other times you get caught. I hope this doesn’t destroy her life and that she can do what she has to do to make things right. Praying for you Luz.

      Mistake and an alleged to have stole $150,000.00 over a period of time? She need to go Ballo for awhile. You have one victim crying because one dishonest person decided that the man's money is hers without working for it.

    I am so disappointed reading this today Luz. I've known you a long time and this is not what I expected from you. I'm not going to judge you. I pray you are found innocent. You have been through so much. I so admired you working at the bank and then at Riteway. I know times are hard but everybody is feeling the pinch. Man oh man. My heart is deeply saddened. Lord Jesus I pray for my friend and her family. Help her through this Lord.

      I thought the same thing. 90% of the times you folks are quick to post pics of a person who is not a Tolan. Just by their name, you go right ahead and post a pic. Where are the pics of the locals who commit such crimes or worse? And this comment is in no way to cause segregation. the biases are there for all to see.

      Have you counted the number of BV Islanders in usvi and USA? (Also u.k. since Irma)
      A lot of these Spanish people have bvi last names and are Belongers. Quite a few of the young people and most of the children are BV Islanders. So don't be quick to call them down. We are all on this earth for a short time. Live and let live. A lot of Spanish people like every other nationality who are grateful to call bvi home are really nice and are hard working. Don't paint everyone with the same brush.

    As a BVI lander am here reading all these comments about who has the most theft. Well it's very unfortunate that this young lady made bad decisions that which she will have to live with for a very long time but let those without sin cast the first stone. Now WHY was miss Sanchez delma topped headline news when all the other WHITE COLLAR CRIMINALS are still sitting behind desks and continued to be promoted and transferred even after they have stolen soo much more. They don't post their pictures up anywhere but instead they sweep it under the rug because of who they are connected to. They have been stealing from that committee for donkey years, so please post the others photos up as well. Miss Sanchez was caught but where are the other CRIMINALS PHOTOS ??????

    The territory start getting rid of the Santos and some of the people from other Caribbean islands the BVI would be a much better place. As soon as they started letting undesirables in the Country took a nose dive. Soon everyone in the BVI will be speaking Gwalla Gwalla.

    Luz was a really helpful person at the bank. I hope that she is not punished too severely.

    Women commit a tiny amount of crime but are often disproportionately punished for them.

    I hope she will be given leniency by the court and avoid prison. She did not commit any act if violence and society do not need to be protected from her.
