BVI News understands that police arrested a woman on Tortola earlier this week who claimed the money she stole was used to purchase food.
Though the arrest was made this week, the theft reportedly occurred some time in August.
The woman was reportedly arrested in the Baugher’s Bay community. However, it is unclear whether she resides in this area.
BVI News has not been able to confirm the amount that was stolen, but the sum reportedly exceeds $900.
It’s reported that the woman stole the money from a vehicle and told police officers she used it to buy food.
She was later charged with theft but has reportedly been released on bail. However, our news centre hasn’t confirmed the amount that was paid for her release.
The woman is scheduled to appear in court in the coming months to answer to the charge of theft laid against her.
