Another aircraft detained for breaking Customs laws
The Customs Department yet again has detained another aircraft at the Terrance B Lettsome International Airport for breaking Customs regulations.
Commissioner Wade Smith said the aircraft arrived from Puerto Rico last Wednesday with cargo for a business place in Road Town.

Smith said the pilot, a Puerto Rican, was fined $10,000 for breaking the Customs Management and Duties Act.
