Police Find Another Female on Foreign Fishing Vessel

The joint law enforcement initiative to stop criminal activity associated with foreign fishing vessels known as Operation Clean Harbour continued today.

Officers from Customs, Quarantine and Police boarded a foreign fishing vessel this morning and found a female onboard.

Initial inquiries indicated the female did not have the appropriate permits to be on the foreign fishing vessel.

She was subsequently transported to the Police Wharf for questioning.

Police and Customs inquiries are continuing to determine if any criminal action should be taken against the female and the crew of the foreign fishing vessel.
