NASSAU, BAHAMAS — Two women and a man were fined $2,400 each for possessing and uttering forged documents in attempts to travel to the Family Islands on Wednesday.
Alicia Stuart, 32, of Fox Hill; Marilyn Crosdale, 33, of Carmichael Road; and Theran Evans, 35, of St Andrews Estates, appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt yesterday.
The prosecution alleged that on March 31, at Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA), Stuart and Crosdale presented a Western Air agent and a COVID-19 ambassador a Doctor’s Hospital Health System negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test result, knowing it was not genuine.
The pair was arrested and told officers during their interview under caution that they were traveling to Abaco.
Stuart and Crosdale, who visibly wept in the courtroom, both pleaded guilty to the charges.
Crosdale’s attorney said she was traveling to Abaco to attend the funeral of a family member who died suddenly.
