The members of the National Security Council (NSC) have been briefed by the Commissioner of Police on today’s armed robbery at the Cyril B. Romney Tortola Pier Park.  We are thankful to God that no one was physically injured during the incident.

The NSC wishes to assure everyone that the security of the people of the Virgin Islands is of paramount concern and that no stone will be left unturned in bringing the perpetrators of this crime to justice.

The NSC is therefore appealing to anyone with information on those responsible for this violent act to contact the Police with tips at Crime Stoppers and/or the confidential and untraceable hotline 800-8477[TIPS], 800-847-8477 and 368-9339. Meanwhile, there will be an increased presence at the Pier Park and at other events taking place in the Territory this weekend to help ensure the public’s safety.
