Police tracking down group of men suspected of illegal entry

Police tracking down group of men suspected of illegal entry

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) and the Department of Immigration are actively pursuing about 6 to 8 men who entered the Territory yesterday morning, August 22, 2020, and docked at Alfredo Delville Marina in West End, Tortola.

Sources within the RVIPF said the group was seen in a vessel travelling at a "very fast rate" from the direction of St John, US Virgin Islands (USVI).

Eyewitnesses said the men also had a motorcycle onboard the vessel.

By the time law enforcement arrived at the dock; however, the men had already made their escape in two vehicles, one described as a grey pickup truck, which they had attached a dinghy.

One reportedly fled on the motorcycle with a large duffle bag on his back.

More details will be provided as they come in.

The recent spike in positive COVID-19 cases in the Virgin Islands is being attributed to illegal entry.
