Crime Stoppers: Is pleased to report we received four new tips this week, which brings our total tips received to 30. Law Enforcement Coordinator Lt. Thomas Hannah, VIPD, says many of these tips are very promising giving the VIPD the kind of information that is going to lead to arrests just as soon as the investigations are completed. Lt. Hannah also said he wants to thank the tipsters who provided the information and to let the public know that any information you have, no matter how insignificant, might be the one piece of information needed to allow our detectives to solve another crime.
Anyone with information on these, or any other crimes, should immediately Call Crime Stoppers USVI at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can also submit a tip online at "www.crimestoppersusvi.org, or by texting “USVI plus your message” to CRIMES (274637). You will remain anonymous and you do not have to testify in court. If the information you provide leads to an arrest, or the recovery of stolen property, you will earn a cash reward of up to $2,500. Only anonymous callers to Crime Stoppers are eligible for these cash rewards.
