Suspect a No-Show At Advice of Rights Hearing

Police have issued a wanted poster for Justin Likout of Estate Catherine’s Hope, who failed to appear at his advice of rights hearing Tuesday.

Likout had been arrested Jan. 21 and charged with obtaining money by false pretence, grand larceny and drawing and delivering more than $11,000 in worthless checks to several businesses on St. Croix. He was remanded to jail at that time.

On Friday detectves from the Insular Investigation Bureau arrested Likout again, while still in jail, charging him with trespassing and operating a business without a license. His bail in that case was set at $1,000 and he was returned to custody. Likout was bailed out shortly after his return to jail and has not been seen since.

Police said Likout, 35, wore an electronic monitor since his arrest on assault charges in 2010. However, when he was incarcerated the monitor was removed. Police said the monitor should have been reattached to Likout being bailed out of jail, but it was not.
