Bulgarian Wanted in Antigua Nabbed in Barbados

Martin Mititrov Dachenski was arrested on board a cruise ship which docked in Bridgetown.

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Wednesday April 11, 2018
– The search for a Bulgarian man, who had been on the run after skipping bail in Antigua and Barbuda on electronic fraud and larceny charges, has ended in Barbados.

Martin Mititrov Dachenski, 39, was arrested around 8 a. m. yesterday on board the cruise ship MSC Fantasia which docked in Bridgetown.

He had been on bail from the court in Antigua, having been arrested and charged for electronic fraud and larceny in December 2017. The foreigner allegedly hacked into several ATMs and defrauded a local bank, and faced three additional counts of larceny in February.

Dachenski fled the island and headed to Guadeloupe, before later journeying to St. Lucia and then to Barbados on board the cruise ship.

“As investigations continue, it is anticipated that this fugitive will be repatriated to authorities in Antigua and Barbuda,” the police in Barbados said.
