Two Arrested in Pizza Hut Burglary

Police on St. Thomas arrested 20-year-old Christian Rojas and 19-year-old Bradley Simmonds after they were discovered inside the Water Front Pizza Hut after normal business hours and without permission.
According to the preliminary police report, patrol units were dispatched to the business and saw the lock on the exterior gate appeared to be cut off. Investigating further, they heard voices inside the business. When one of the suspects looked out and saw the police, both suspects ran from the building.
Police chased and apprehended the suspects and arrested them. The suspects gained entry to the business through the gate and a back door, police learned. Once inside, the suspects allegedly took cash from the cash register and four gaming machines.
Rojas and Simmonds were each charged with third-degree burglary and placed on $27,000 bail. They were remanded to the custody of the Bureau of Corrections pending further court action.
