VALLEY, Virgin Gorda, VI - Two male Virgin Gorda residents were charged with firearm-related offences in relation to a robbery over the weekend.

Richard Creque, 44, of North Sound was charged will robbery and possession of an illegal firearm with intent to injury while Neil St. Rose, 42, a native of St Lucia, residing in Gun Creek was charged with possession of illegal firearm and criminal damage.

Inquiries indicate that the two men were entering a vehicle outside a bar in Virgin Gorda on Saturday night when a firearm fell from the pocket of Creque. A patron in the parking lot picked up the firearm and placed it in his pocket. St Rose’s threats of having another firearm resulted in the patron agreeing to a search. The firearm was retrieved and then used to rob the patron of money and his car keys. 

The patron subsequently ran and a firearm was discharged. Both men then fled the scene.

No one was injured in the incident. The firearm is still to be located.

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) continues to make its appeal for information into individuals in possession of illegal firearms. Persons can contact the RVIPF Intelligence Unit at 368-9339. All information will be held in the strictest confidence.
