Turks and Caicos problems

Jump to last reply

The Turks and Caicos are now having problems at their airport. Departing American Senior citizens beware. Several people have had 1 single bullet round slipped into their bag. Then the security does a search and finds the single bullet. Last week an 80 year old
American tourist was arrested and placed in a jail cell. He was there over the weekend because the judge decided to leave her office early on Friday, so he spent 3 days in a cell with murderers and thieves. In another case a 60+ year old American grandmother was locked up as well. They are targeting American seniors who appear to have money..
Adding insult to injury, they then charge you $4000 USD cash to get out of jail. Please see details in Sarasota Herald Tribune article. Link is listed below or google "Herald Tribune Turks and Caicos".
