Woman admits stealing money from BTA

A 21-year-old Devonshire woman pleaded guilty to stealing $200 in cash from a Bermuda Tourism Authority information booth.

Yasmyne Simons was caught on a cell phone camera footage taking money from the float at the Visitor Information Centre in Dockyard from an orange bag and putting it into her back pocket on August 20.

Her supervisor gave a statement to the police on August 22 and the following day Simons was arrested and detained at Hamilton Police Station where she admitted the theft.

A Social Inquiry Report was ordered and the matter is to be addressed in Magistrate’s Court on November 14. She was released on bail of $2,000.
