3 Illegal Residents Are Suspects in Home Invasion

Aug. 20, 2004 – Three men picked up by police on St. John and subsequently found to be Jamaican nationals in the United States illegally are suspects in an Aug. 15 home invasion and robbery on St. John's East End.
Sgt. Thomas Hannah, police spokesman, said the three have not been arrested or charged with any crime, but they match descriptions of the assailants.
He identified the three as Sakee Scott, Andre Scott and Junior Miller and said that police after interviewing the men turned them over to immigration authorities. They are now in federal custody, he said.
According to police, a check into the men's background found that Miller has a lengthy criminal history, is the subject of an outstanding arrest warrant, and was previously deported from the United States for illegal entry.
Hannah said all three men have been living in the Coral Bay area.
"Information from citizens of the Coral Bay area led to those individuals being picked up," he said. "It was learned that these were three Jamaican nationals … They are undocumented persons. They are being held for being in the territory illegally."
Hannah commended the St. John residents for their cooperation with authorities that led to the apprehension of the three men.
The investigation into the Aug. 15 armed robbery of a couple in a house on Privateer Road continues, he said. According to authorities, three men entered the home around 4 p.m., threatened the occupants with a gun and a knife, robbed them, and left them bound with duct tape.
St. John Deputy Police Chief Angelo Hill "was out there with the guys doing the footwork to find out what happened," Hannah said, "because, remember, Deputy Chief Hill also lives on St. John, and he cares about his home."
