An Immigration officer has been arrested and charged with theft, according to reports reaching BVI News.

The Immigration Officer in question is said to be a resident of Virgin Gorda.

He allegedly stole the funds sometime this week while working at the St Thomas Bay Jetty on the said island, BVI News understands.

It is further understood that the accused law enforcement officer allegedly used an office key to enter and raid the Immigration office at the Jetty.

It is not clear how much cash the officer allegedly stole.

But, it is said that another Immigration Officer alerted police after discovering that cash from the office’s coffers had gone missing.

Police arrested the accused officer after visiting the facility and conducting investigations, BVI News understands.

It is not clear when the accused man will appear before the Magistrate’s Court.

Meanwhile, reports that an Immigration officer allegedly stole from his department comes weeks after BVI Ports Authority worker, Nicklin Joseph was caught stealing on camera.

He was handed an eight-month suspended sentence in the Magistrate’s Court recently.

        The card numbers do NOT print out fully on the receipt. You would be stupid to stand there and let them write down you card number. She is wrong for what she did and government won’t get back that money. We I’ll have to pay for her to eat up balo

    Cards are being used world wide. It eliminates the need for cash. It decreases the chances for theft of cash. Finances are better controlled
