PHILIPSBURG–Police arrested InselAir’s former St. Maarten manager A.H on Tuesday morning in connection with an embezzlement case involving him and another former employee, for allegedly skimming close to US $100,000 from the company last year.
Police spokesman Chief Inspector Ricardo Henson confirmed that the arrest took place early on Tuesday and declined to comment on the nature of the investigation.
A.H left to island last year and travelled to the Dominican Republic while InselAir officials were investigating him.
The funds were discovered to be missing after an internal audit by an external team of investigators in August last year. Reports of missing funds had started to surface at the main office in Curaçao and top management decided to send the investigators to find out what was taking place.
They discovered that the funds were missing and sent the manager on immediate leave of absence, while the company terminated the other employee’s contract.
