St. Thomas police investigating a residential burglary that occurred about 11 a.m. Friday in Estate Contant have arrested three suspects and charging them with possession of stolen property.
Items taken from the home were recovered, the police said in a news release.
The police arrested 46-year-old Dean Henry of Estate Thomas, 24-year-old Walter Hill who resides in Estate Charlotte Amalie and 30-year-old Kareem Joseph of Paul M. Pearson Gardens housing community.
The suspects were arrested at about 10:15 p.m. Friday.
Police said an elderly couple had reported that their home was burglarized and a flat-screen TV and generator were taken. Police wrote an initial burglary report and later that day Crime Prevention officers visited the couple at their home to make a security assessment and employ community-oriented policing services.
While Crime Prevention officers were advising the couple about better ways to secure their home and making recommendations on securing the open perimeter of their property, they discovered the stolen items hidden in a busy area several feet away from the home.
The Intelligence Unit and the Crime Prevention Unit collaborated in the arrests of Henry, Thomas, and Hill.
The suspects were held on $60,000 bail each, and they were remanded to the custody of the Bureau of Corrections.
