Police in St Kitts says they have captured the male believed to be from Antigua and Barbuda who illegally entered the country on Tuesday, May 11.
The Police added that the man is in quarantine and will be tested for COVID-19.
On Wednesday, May 12 police said they were searching for a male who would have entered the Federation with a stolen boat from Antigua.
This was confirmed by Divisional Commander for District ‘A’, Superintendent Cromwell Henry, who said the police on May 11 received information about a fishing vessel landing at Lime Kiln Bay, and an individual with a suitcase ran off.
He said the Coast Guard, Police and several Defence Force units responded, and found the abandoned vessel on the beach.
“Our investigations so far have revealed that the vessel was stolen in Antigua on Monday night and this has led us to believe the individual possibly came from Antigua,” Henry told the media.
He added there are concerns about the individual, because of the community spread of Covid-19 in Antigua and Barbuda.
“However health authorities here have maintained that there is no community spread of Covid-19 in the twin-island state.”
