Reports reaching BVI News indicate that a daring daylight robbery was executed sometime this morning at Aladdin BVI on Flemming Street in Road Town.
It is not immediately clear what was taken during the robbery or how long the ordeal lasted.
Four masked persons were reportedly involved in the incident but it is not clear how many persons were in the store at the time of the robbery.
Amateur video footage showed one of the robbers fully dressed in black wearing white gloves and holding what appeared to be a high-powered firearm while standing guard outside of the store.
Three other men subsequently emerged, all holding weapons and escaping towards a waiting KIA SUV with their takings from the store.
The men reportedly headed west along Main Street and made their escape.
BVI News will bring more details as it becomes available.
