Police Bust Up Raft-Up

 Police Bust Up Raft-Up

The Bermuda Police Service, (BPS), is aware of a video clip circulating on social media, showing a raft up with several individuals in attendance.

A Bermuda Coastguard crew on patrol attended the scene. The event was shut down and the vessels involved dispersed.

The Coastguard team took further action to ensure the boats did not move to another location and the activity resumed.

The identities of individuals involved were recorded.

The Coastguard is now collaborating with the BPS to prepare a file to be sent to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions which will make a determination on any possible further action.

The BPS investigation into a similar event hosted by U.S. clothing line Revolve, is progressing apace and we would like to thank those individuals who have so far come forward to assist.

The public is reminded that under the current COVID regulations, raft ups are not permitted at any time.

The regulations state: “No person shall tie a boat to another boat (raft up) for recreational purposes.”

The guidelines for such events can be found in the Official Gazette Notices by visiting, www.gov.bm.
