Crime Stoppers Needs Your Help

Crime Stoppers needs your help to solve the following crimes. If you know something, say something, as law enforcement cannot control crime without your help. Even the smallest bit of information may be just what law enforcement needs to solve these cases.

St. Croix: On Thursday Sept. 8 at 5:10 p.m., VIPD was notified of a burglary at #25 Estate Carlton. The burglar(s) made several attempts to gain entry into the home and finally succeeded by breaking and cutting the metal louvers of a door. Items stolen included a Play Station 2, a Dell laptop, and various pieces of jewelry. If you saw anyone in the area of the new Carlton development or on the road leading to the Carlton Condos, please let us know so law enforcement can capture this burglar.

St. John: On Saturday Sept. 3 at about 11:30 a.m., a resident visiting Chocolate Hole Beach noticed a black male acting suspiciously in the area where his car was parked, but did not report it. Later when the resident returned home, he realized his cell phone was missing from under the seat of his car. VIPD is asking all persons using Chocolate Hole Beach to take notice of all suspicious individuals and to call police with a physical description and the exact location of the individual at the moment.

St. Thomas: On July 7, 2008 at about 3:30 p.m., in the Shop Rite Grocery in Lindbergh Bay, retired police Sgt. Liston Gumbs observed a robbery in progress. He came to the aid of a cashier and in the process he was shot and later died. Police believe there were witnesses to this robbery and murder. Please assist us in bringing closure to the family of Sgt. Gumbs.
