Two men have been arrested for illegal entry in the British Virgin Islands.
Charged are 35-year-old Julio Samuel of Cane Garden Bay and 24-year-old Danny Dennevil of Lower Estate on Tortola.
The men, who are BVI Belongers, have also been charged with breach of curfew.
A police media release on Thursday said local law enforcement officers had observed a small vessel on route to the BVI through the Sir Francis Drake Channel on an unspecified date.
The vessel was reportedly heading into Frenchman’s Cay.
Police said Samuel and Dennevil were later apprehended after being observed walking away from the vessel towards a parked vehicle.
“They remain in custody pending their appearance at the Magistrate’s Court,” the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force stated.
