Immigration officer robs woman on VG, police allege


An Immigration officer has found himself on the wrong end of the law and is now facing robbery charges.

Charged is 35-year-old Virgin Gorda resident, Donald Hanley.

Police allege Hanley approached a woman one night in March while she was on her way home in Virgin Gorda.

The Immigration officer allegedly robbed the woman of ‘proceeds of a business’.

No one was injured in that incident, police said.

Police also mentioned two other robbery-related arrests they made recently.

One of the two accused persons isMervin Flaherty, Jr who police said was charged after being identified as the lone masked gunman who entered a business in Port Purcell last July. The second is an unnamed assailant who was reportedly involved in an attempted robbery at the weekend.

Giving details of the latter incident, police said: “In the attempted robbery, two armed males dressed in black hoodies reportedly held up workers of the food stand.”

“Initial investigations indicate that one of the armed males tried to grab a bag of money from a worker but was fought off. In the struggle, the gun was extricated from that assailant and his partner ran off through the parking lot.”

Persons in the area at the time reportedly mobbed an beat the assailant who was, thereafter, taken to Peebles Hospital for treatment.

He escaped custody at the hospital but was later recaptured.

      Real Talk – The Immigration officer allegedly robbed the woman of ‘proceeds of a business’.
      What a ting. Who vex dead. It is alleged.

    • ; ) my opinion says:

      Did i just read that comment correctly,he made a “mistake” he probably regrets the act or getting caught at best but i dont think mistake applies in this situation. A mistake is when you’re washing a white load of clothing and a colored sock gets mixed in by accident and turns the entire load a diffrent color NOT RUBBERY.

    Probably reportedly stealing to afford A REAL HURRICANE SHELTER. BVI, your time is in the past. With immigration officers allegedly robbing other locals on Virgin Gorda of all places, your tourism program will never recover. It was nice while it lasted. Seems like “nature’s little secret” is that the BVI is now a third world country and a dangerous one to boot. SMH. Some fools just can’t have enough, ever.

  11. Huh says:

    Proceeds of a business sounds fishy to me. He allegedly rob a hooker or something?
