ST. THOMAS - An employee for the Native Son ferry company confirmed Monday that about $130,000 worth of tickets had been stolen from the company some time between June and October 2012.
The theft was discovered in late January after a woman tried to use a stolen ticket to board the ferry service to the British Virgin Islands. Staff conducted an audit and discovered about 31 books of 100 tickets missing from the inventory. The books ranged in value from $30 to $65, according to ticket manager Deshaun Smith.
