Thieves raid businesses on Virgin Gorda

Since the start of this week, a total of four businesses have been burglarised on Virgin Gorda.

The latest two incidents happened Wednesday night, October 7. Thieves broke into two business establishments, Buck’s Supermarket and a business office. While nothing was reported missing from the supermarket, a significant amount of cash was taken from the business location.

Earlier this week, two villas on Virgin Gorda were also burglarised, one in Spring Bay and the other in Mahoe Bay. Flat-screen televisions and a mattress were stolen.

Head of the Virgin Gorda Policing Division Acting Chief Inspector Selwyn Rock is appealing to the public to come forward with information that can lead to the arrest of perpetrators.

He said the crimes on Virgin Gorda are being committed by a few young people.

“Our desire is to bring a quick end to these burglaries by arresting the individuals responsible and restoring the Virgin Gorda community to its former tranquil existence. There are just a few, mostly young individuals responsible. We are asking the public to give us the help needed to identify these individuals,” Inspector Rock said.

Persons are invited to call Inspector Rock directly at 368-9138.

    Crime and unemployment are the direct result of a monumental local government failure.
    We could have opened up months ago were we not led by this arrogant politician who failed in his basic duty of protecting the people.
    It is instructive to compare Fahie with Trump-
    *Unbelievably incompetent handling of Covid – check
    *Blame of any agency who offers help – check
    Infighting with all agencies to deflect criticism – check
    *Refusal to collaborate with qualified experts and stakeholders like BVICCHA – check
    *Reliance on unqualified and secretive “consultants” – check
    *Overweaning and paranoid self-importance, private security guards, armoured car – check

    this is not about being unemployed or hungry!
    These are young thugs that know they can get away with it because nobody will say anything!
    Somebody knows who they are and are holding their tongue.
    this is bad for the whole Island, It is affecting everyone’s wallet. Tourists are not coming to a place that is lawless.

    maybe the guy bail went to finish his mission

  9. Even if caught what happens says:

    What happened to those that were caught robbing VG Scotiabank a few months back? Did they ever make it to court?

  10. Bvi strong says:

    These police officers on vg need to be moved

  11. You know says:

    People know who these punks are. They just won’t give them up because of their so-called code of silence. That makes them complicit. It also means that they are OK living in a den of thieves. Another one of those “Nature’s Little Secrets”
