Thats all the looters. For just one location... after so much high day looting in so many places.. Thats it? Was looking to see hundreds being charge....This looting is unacceptable never in my life would i ever think.the bvi would come to this. That this kind of day light parade looting will happen in the BVI.

While you are checking, take a look for some of the gear looted from the boats in VG Yacht Harbour. Stupid to strip boats of stereos and other useless stuff - we could use these boats to bring in building supplies.

So what those people were looking for in BVI communications? Phones or they were planning on starting a radio station or its just bad habit they have to take up what is not theirs.

Looting for survival is one thing, looting useless items is another. Scumbags, if they ain't from here, deport them. We don't need people like them among our community. #sorrynotsorry

check their bags when they are leaving the ports. Ensure they have receipt for new items.
