Police have said they are in “active pursuit” of two gunmen who forced their way into a Virgin Gorda business and stole $30 in cash and coins.
Law enforcers said the masked men broke into VG Graphics early Wednesday morning, September 4.
After successfully demanding the money, the perpetrators reportedly fled on foot.
No one was harmed during the incident.
“The suspects are described as slim built and approximately five feet 5 inches. At the time, they were wearing all black with masks on their faces,” police said in a media release following the robbery.
“Persons with information into the identity of these suspects are asked to contact the Virgin Gorda Police Station directly or call the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) access number, 311. Persons can also call the RVIPF Intelligence Unit at 284-368-9339,” law enforcers added.
The police have made it clear that all information will be “held in the strictest confidence”.
