Local Burglary Suspect Also Wanted in Miami

Police on St. Thomas arrested a man for burglary Monday and discovered he was also wanted by Miami-Dade County police.

Mario C. Vanterpool, 33, was arrested around 1:50 p.m. Monday and charged with third-degree burglary when surveillance cameras showed him breaking into a Fort Mylner nightclub, stealing a television and personal documents, police said.

A routine check of the National Crime Information Center revealed that a warrant had been issued for his arrest by the Miami-Dade County Police Department in Florida. Officers there charged Vanterpool with possession of dangerous drugs, tampering with physical evidence and fleeing to elude police.

Police said Vanterpool’s extradition is pending.
