According to information reaching this media house, the robber stole a total of about US$1200 and fled the scene without further confrontation.

The Judge, The Observer was told, is a regular vacationer to the island and was traveling with his wife and several friends on this sojourn.

The Observer understands that the U.S. Federal Agent arrived in Nevis on Friday, however it was not confirmed if he is observing the local law enforcement’s handling of the case or working in conjunction with Nevis police.
