Our South Florida criminal defense attorneys have learned that an ex-Royal Caribbean employee is charged with robbing the homes of almost two dozen South Florida residents while they were sailing aboard cruise ships. The 38-year-old women was arrested on burglary charges earlier this month and is being held on $70,000 bail.
According to Palm Beach County detectives, the former vacation planner gained access to traveler’s information when she was working at the cruise company’s Miramar offices. Authorities believe that she and her husband began robbing Royal Caribbean customers In 2009. The husband is also charged in this case and was being held at a Broward County jail on unrelated charges.
Royal Caribbean said it would not tolerate criminal activity, so the employee has been let go.
