International criminals targeting Bermuda’
Police expect more convictions in connection to thefts from banks involving foreign nationals.
Six foreigners have been jailed for between nine and 19 months this year for thefts from financial institutions in Bermuda.
Police said the convictions, which include residents from Eastern Europe, France and Puerto Rico, came after investigations between January and October.
Charges included conspiracy to steal, possession of equipment made or adapted for making false debit and credit cards, possession of false debit and credit cards, theft and attempted theft.
A Bermuda Police Service spokesman said: “With clear indications that the island is being targeted by international criminal enterprise, the Bermuda Police Service Criminal Investigations Unit continues to work closely with our overseas partners to put an end to this illegal activity and is following a number of specific lines of inquiry, which we are confident will lead to further successful prosecution before the courts.”
