Puerto Rican pair admit conspiracy to steal
Two Puerto Ricans have admitted conspiracy to steal cash and take it out of Bermuda.
Juan Carvajal, 21, and Avik Rivera, 25, pleaded guilty in Supreme Court yesterday to conspiracy to steal cash from HSBC-owned cash machines in Bermuda and elsewhere.
The pair also pleaded guilty to attempted money laundering.
The theft offences were committed between a date unknown and January 19.
Magistrates’ Court earlier heard that Carvajal and Rivera were stopped by US Customs officers at the airport when they tried to leave the island on January 19.
The court was told that the men had about $2,000 in Bermuda currency in their possession.
The two were remanded in custody for sentencing.
