Information reaching our newsroom from sources close to the situation is that a male resident of Duff's Bottom, Tortola, was yesterday, August 31, 2020, slapped with the charge of Illegal Entry on landing at the West End Ferry Terminal.
According to details obtained by Virgin Islands News Online (VINO), the individual had left the Territory around mid-July, 2020.

He was held after he hopped off the New Horizon Ferry, following surveillance and intelligence communicated between Customs and Immigration.

The man is suspected to have sneaked into Jost van Dyke (JvD) and was headed home to Tortola when he was held and charged for the alleged offense.

When arrested, he allegedly gave officers a 'false name' and claimed he had been on JvD since the lockdown.
