Nearly 500 ferry tickets found –Speedy’s targeted

Vigilant law enforcers at the Terrence B Lettsome International Airport have foiled what appears to be a ferry ticket racket intended to hit Virgin Gorda Transport, which operates as Speedy’s.

Nearly 500 tickets with the company’s name have been seized.

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force has taken two persons into custody in relation to the find, but only one has been charged.

Yudelka Matos of the Dominican Republic has been arrested and charged with Going Equip to Cheat.

The RVIPF announced the charge, but did not give details of the allegations.

Matos, however, was nabbed after she arrived at the Terrence B Lettsome International Airport from her native Dominican Republic.

A search of her luggage allegedly revealed hundreds of Speedy’s ferry tickets, which were not ordered by the ferry company.

The accused woman is reportedly claiming that she was asked to drop the tickets off to a male person here in the British Virgin Islands.

    Gosh man..Strugglling legitimately providing a much needed service to the BVI and this is his reward? Wonder how much money has been lost by Speedys. Doggone shame. Immigration Dept lack of uptodate restrictions is a contrbutor to this madness.

    Also in the news is a reminder of one who is alleged to have coldhearetedly and brutally murdered a son of the soil a few months ago.

    I’m so honored to be in this country. Why should I make a fool of myself? What is wrong with these people. They make things bad for expats. I hope she gets jail for a very long g time, if found guilty.

    It’s really sad that they welcome us here and this is how we say “thank you” disgraceful and too low to be call decent human being
