4 Masked Men Rob KFC In Nisky Center At Gunpoint On Monday Night: VIPD

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Four masked men — one of them armed — held up a fast food restaurant in a St. Thomas shopping center on Monday night, authorities said.

The 911 Emergency Call Center dispatched officers to KFC near Nisky Center in reference to a robbery about 9:46 p.m. Monday, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

“The employees at the establishment reported that four males wearing all black with their faces covered entered the restaurant,.” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said. “One of the males brandished a handgun, demanding the money from the restaurant.”

The suspects made off with at least $1,000 from the restaurant and fled the area in an unknown direction, Derima told the Virgin Islands Free Press this morning.

This case is currently under active investigation by the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB).

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
