Thieves Strike Again Leaving Two Tourists Stranded

24

Two more tourists have been robbed and among the items taken were their passports, IDs, cruise identification tags as well as bank cards, cash, and cell phones.

Daniel Edimanski and his cousin, Alex, were visiting the Pigeon Point Beach along with family when fellow tourists shouted that two men were stealing from them.

Daniel was in the sea at the time but Alex heard the alert as well and chased after the two perpetrators.

The chase led to the gate at the APUA desalination, near the beach, which the thieves hopped over and fled to the mountains adjacent to the plant.

Daniel and Alex provided a description of the men saying they were black and about 5’8″ – 5’9″ in height – one of them was wearing blue pants.

A similar incident occurred last Friday, Rosalinda Scipioni was the victim of theft after after thieves broke into her car and stole her handbag containing all of her travel documents.

    • These thieves from Jamaica and Haiti will continue to ruin Antigua. At some point the government will realize that our tourism economy will decline due to this activity. CARICOM immigration is destroying Antigua at its core.

    • Please don’t mention Barbuda because no tourist is getting Robbed over there. Hate when crimes are done here and someone or the media mentioned BARBUDA…u all need to stop it. Antigua crimes are Antigua crimes. Cho!

  1. I am very sadden to hear this since tourism is our main revenue resource to operate this country. It seem that Antigua is catching up with some of the other Caribbean islands in an upward spike in crime activities. Lord Jesus please heal our nation. When a small island like ours population increases in human resource, crime will increase to.

    • Antigua is not catching up with other Caribbean islands in any upward crime swing. Antigua and other Caribbean islands are catching up with the U.S. in upward crime swing.

    • As long as our government encourages immigration into Antigua from poor CARICOM countries, we will all suffer.

    • At this point it doesnt matter where there from…THEY ARE THERE…

      They are reaking havoc and tourism is going to fall flat.

      What does ANTIGUA HAVE TO OFFER THESE TOURISTS BESIDES BEACHES?

      The PM NEEDS TO ADDRESS TOURISTS SAFETY WHILE ON ISLAND AND FIND WAYS TO PROTECT THEM.

    • Maybe we should focus on catching them first, before we determine where they originate from. This racist negativity does nothing to help the issue. As a people who have been persecuted for our skin colour, we should know better!

  2. Wowwwwww…HEAR ME WHEN I SAY ANTIGUA TOURISM IS GOING TO SUFFER TREMENDOUSLY IN 20/20 …

    THESE FOREIGNERS GOING BACK WITH A SOUR AZZ TASTE IN THEIR. MOUTHS AND WILL SPREAD THEIR NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE TO EVERYONE WHO WLL SUFFER ……

    Look at the foolishness happening with JOLLY BEACH AND ITS SUBCIDERIES ….WHAT IF THE INVESTORS CHOOSE AFTER THIS SEASON TO PULL UP RANKS AND LEAVE …..HOW MANY JOBS WOULD BE LOST.?….
    Where would you be then selling plying your trade WHERE?

    IS BEACH ALONE THESE HOTELS SELLING THE BEACHES ARE NOT THE ONLY BEACHES IN THE WORLD……

    Other prospective investors are now rethinking investing in ANTIGUA
    Jobs that are so needed are now in limbo….yet the continued arrogance entittlement is getting overwhelming…

    Im not saying persons shouldnt voice their concerns over their livelihood being threatened but not with such dunceness and aggression.

    When ALL THE HOTELS LEAVE WHERE ARE YOU GONNA “PLY YOUR TRADE”
    These hotels are PRIVATE PROPERTIES THE BEACHES ARE PUBLIC BUT MOST VENDORS SHOULD SET UP PROPER STALLS INSTEAD OF THE EYE SORES..

    NOW WE HAVING A SURGE OF TOURISTS ROBBERIES ..GOOD LUCK WITH THE RAMIFICATIONS OF THAT ….

  3. These foreigners need to go back to their poverty stricken country. Stop giving my country a bad name.

    • ‘member when people were fleeing to the Virgin islands because Antigua was one of the poverty stricken countries to them? Well, look at Antigua now. People are fleeing to Antigua from their poverty stricken countries now. St.Lucia, Dominica, Trinidad are all developed islands. What’s with Jamaica?

  4. It’s time Antigua deals with these criminals harshly. Time to start dealing with them in ways that will deter them going forward.

    If they are originally from other islands, they need to be deported and flagged in the system never to be allowed access again.

    The laws have gotten so soft that criminals have more rights than law abiding citizens. Sad state of affairs.

  5. The tourists need to be advised to protect their property when on the island. Don’t think they would leave their valuables unattended when visiting a beach in the US as in all likelihood they would be stolen. Crime of opportunity happens everywhere, not just Antigua. One of them should be looking after the personal items while the others go swimming.
    There are a lot of young people out of work and if given the opportunity they will help themselves to other people’s property.

  6. Antiguans can be the dumbest set ah assholes on a daily basis… most times is allyuh own committing these dumb ass crimes… is it only Jamaicans and Haitians or foreigners on a whole that can commit crime? If so, why so many Antiguans get deported from America and elsewhere all the time? Allyuh must think before allyuh talk especially the idiot that keeps calling out Jamaicans and Haitians!! Dumb as hell!!! I’m neither of the two but NOBODY OR NO ISLANDER is without sin!!! Allyuh need to look back at a lot of the robbery crimes exposed and recount who were the perpetrators…. ANTIGUANS!! DUMBASS!!!!

  7. When it comes to that, allyuh blasted families need to come out of America and China and other CARICOM nations and other foreign countries in which they reside and come BODYGUARD Antigua. Get out of other people’s country!!! Allyuh minds so myopic… ( go and look up that word cause allyuh just dunce) How the hell the world supposed to progress if there is not movement… LOOK… allyuh need to PURGE!!! … get some brains and learn to think and speak with more common sense. Allyuh always quick to call out foreigners but when allyuh hear is an Antiguan allyuh can’t talk…

    • No Eyelandgirl, they quick to call out foreigners but they are okay with Antiguans committing crime because as some idiot said in another post basically..”A here dem come from” so they have no problem with that, the problem they have is when a foreigner comes to make a better life for themselves but commit crime.

      Its amazing how ignorant people are. Lowe them

      On another note, there are some Antiguans that are so ashamed of how other Antiguans think and act and wish they could divorce their country

  8. Seriously though, these crimes may not be committed by not be committed by Haitians or Jamaicans, however, Antigua need to consider the number of emigrants. You inherit not just the emigrants, but also their habits and customs. Those responsible for emigration, must consider stricter compliance measures before it become a crisis. Bear in mind that Antigua has no natural resource, therefore, if tourism declines tremendously what will many do?
    Thieves have no limits, so if they now target tourist, certainly the civilians, and businesses will be next. Wake up people.
