In a release issued last Friday, just hours after the conviction of the men, Acting Superintendent Sean Field-Lament of the Bermuda Police Service remarked, “This conviction resulted from a multi-agency cross border investigation with fellow law enforcement agencies in St. Vincent, Bermuda, U.S.A. and the Caribbean region. It underscores the value of joined up partnership working and highlights the value of shared intelligence. The Bermuda Police Service is grateful to all its partners and particular mention must be made of the role of the Bermuda Customs Department for their investigative assistance in this lengthy enquiry.

Detective Inspector Tomkins [of the Bermuda Police Service Financial Crime Unit] and his team are to be commended for their perseverance and hard work.”
