Country Name: SVG
Location Detail: Bequia Princess Margaret Beach
Stolen Items: Cash
DETAILS: Crew and guests left charter yacht around sunset to go ashore for dinner. Companionway was still locked upon return, nothing noticed until the next morning when additional cash was needed for shopping. Cash belonging to crew and guests had been removed from five separate places, leaving behind papers, electronics, etc. Upon investigation it was found that the handle locks on a deck hatch were ineffective, allowing the hatch to be opened even with locks in locked position, the presumptive method of entry. Charter company was advised of this problem at the conclusion of the charter. The crew reported to the local police and returned to the boat with coast guard members who took statements onboard.
