In 1916, the General Hospital in Nassau, New Providence had a few problems with personnel.

Richard J. A. Farrington, a former superintendent at the Bahamas General Hospital had embezzled funds through the classic way, by fiddling his accounting books. When found out, Farrington managed to skip town and made it all the way to New Haven, Connecticut, where police were finally able to grab his collar.

Farrington was put in jail in the US while the British government of the Bahamas filed papers for his extradition.
