Police Investigating Armed Robbery Of Super Save Supermarket In Concordia

FREDERIKSTED – Police are investigating an armed robbery of a grocery store on Concordia Road that netted cell phones and the proceeds of a cash register on Monday night.

The 911 Emergency Call Center dispatched police to a robbery at Super Save Supermarket in Estate Concordia at 8:43 p.m. Monday, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

A preliminary police investigation revealed that an unknown black male entered the store and walked behind the counter where the store owner and another employee were standing, according to the VIPD.

“The male pointed a gun at them and demanded that they open the cash register from where he took the days proceeds and a cell phone,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said. “The suspect then ordered both individuals on the floor and left the area. The suspect was described as short and wearing a purple hooded jacket.”

The suspect hid his face with the hoodie and his hand, Derima said. No injuries were reported.

This case is presently under investigation.

If anyone has any information on this matter, please call 911, the Crime Tip Line at (340) 778-4950, or Crime Stoppers USVI at 1(800) 222-8477.
