HANNAH’S ESTATE, Tortola, VI- The C&D Supermarket in Hannah’s Estate in Sea Cows Bay, Tortola is the latest business establishment to be robbed.

At about 10:45 PM on April 22, 2017 a lone gunman held up one of the owners of the supermarket and made off with cash.

According to reports reaching our newsroom, the gunman pounced as the owner of the establishment was about to close the business for the night.

Police were on the scene moments later conducting their investigations.

The robbery of C&D Supermarket comes on the heels of a lone gunman robbing Riteway Food Markets in Road Town, Tortola on April 19, 2017.

On March 30, 2017 a lone gunman also robbed the Lower Estate Superette on the main island of Tortola.

No one was injured in the three recent armed robberies.

      @ Xxx: I am making 60 years in a few and not among the oldest persons in the territory but I find myself making the same statement: I personally think that the issues the territory have now is a result of unregulated progress(who so ever will)....some of these crimes are committed by non belongers and poor law enforcement

        FYI as a born here your statement is so very wrong and untruth. Most of these crimes are committed by belongers but we are always looking to blame the outsiders for our troubled kids stop blaming others and let's find away to take back our youths from the streets and start being better parents that holds our children accountable for their wrong doing

    Very sad the way that people are trying to make a living. Very sad how this new culture is endorsed by so many people. I never seen anyone from VIP or NDP doing these things. People should post positive post towards the crime etc that's affecting us and hope the persons involved in the crazy stuff see it and feels guilty. Sadly ain't everyone want to look soft by speaking on social issues....... it's not cool to endorse crime. I've been a high school dropout student longer than I've been an entrepreneur/businessman and had to excuse or reasons to Use a gun or rub anyone or push drugs. I've packed bags Bobby's, wash dishes at restaurants/ pump gas, labor in construction etc. there's lots of legit ways to make an income to without causing harm to ourselves or to others. Sadly not all young people have the Gumption to step out and up and be an example and sadly those who do step out and up tends to get try get discouraged by the already sad individuals.

      I see many of your post where you even try and I say try to diss your local brother when they make statement on local social issues and here you are preaching SAD.


      I, in no way, shape, or form support crime but many of this nonsense is happening because of the example set by those white collar crooks at the top but they don't get no accusations because they laugh up with you and big you up on your accomplishment from a billionaire hand out.

      Why don't your billionaire friend invest their money on fighting crime on all levels that they live in the same society around???????

      Because they are caught up in buying those same white collar crooks (Government Officials) out so they can get what he wants also but what the territory needs are jobs and other educational incentives to encourage and divert these young thugs from what they are doing.

      Big ups to you on the path where you came from to what you are today but again who feels it knows it and if you are not guilty of any crime in the past, pick up a stone and throw it at those who are living hell on earth here in the BVI right now. You will say you haven't committed any but I will say that you did not get caught cause I know you well.

      Stop feeling pitty and tell those influential billionaire friends of yours to step up because you brothers and sisters are hurting from all angles. No VIP and NDP talk crap. Talk PPP (People Power Party) with your billionaire friends. Remember you could become a target also doing your business.

      Help save our youths because without them there is no country.


      A hard working Business Man who know you from small.

        Are you trying to say the young men and or women who are committing these crimes is because of financial hardships? The BVI is one of the richest islands in the Caribbean - it may not seem that way but it is. These wanna be thugs are doing this for sport. If you are having hard times, there are many other positive ways people can help you. People who are having hard times, don't have means to smuggle guns, people who are having hard times, don't have $800 cell phones and the latest brand purses and shoes. Please, we are not a country struggling that bad the way we as people present ourselves in our daily lives. I bet, if someone was to describe the gunmen shoes, he was not bare foot - he had on the latest Nikes - stop making excuses for wanna be thugs.

          @gumption.Offical. The individuals who's doing the things their doing have made a choice of how they would like to make a living. So many things can push and motivate someone to do the things their doing. A new trend have affected the BVI that's the always on (Fleek) movement where you have always have on the latest items ect and push those who can't afford it but be in thing to push their boundaries and said due to not want to work an legit job then steeling from hard working people or striving people/businesses have become their choice. However we're not given up on our country/community is the key.... something's are temporary.

    You might get in but you will not get out. Just like you planning for me, I am planning for you. I'm not going to kill you but I am going to take you out back and use my chainsaw to remove your hands and private parts. Fair Warning.

    While my opinion is a lot of these crimes are being committed by locals....both the natives and the I born here.......the issue is not who doing it but more as to why?

    No job availability....some of these youngsters just lazy and don't want to work while another set feels entitled to everything and don't want to work for it while others look for work and can't get them because they don't have the required education or work experience....

    So for some of them they think their only choice is to rob, steal, and act the fool.....our youth needs real guidance not fake promises of an easy life.....they need something concrete and realistic to really start to take life seriously and realize life is not easy......

    Just my opinion

    No! This is not good for our peaceful BVI. As a matter of fact, this is among the things that have led to the moral decade in our nation. To make it worse, it desecrates the day our once beloved nation used to call holy. It is nothing but a mockery.
