Strand Street Burglary Suspects Arrested

Christiansted Bike Patrol officers arrested 29-year-old Luis Garcia on Thursday and charged him with third-degree burglary and grand larceny. Police said Garcia and another suspect, who was arrested Monday, were responsible for a series of burglaries committed in Christiansted town, specifically Strand Street businesses.

Garcia was identified as a suspect in the burglaries and a warrant was issued for his arrest. He was arrested without incident at an abandoned building on Hospital Street where police believe he was residing.

Additionally, Anthony Johannes, age 32, was arrested by Christiansted Bike Patrol officers on Monday at about 5:30 p.m. and charged with possession of stolen property. Johannes was observed by police carrying metal louvers which were later identified to be stolen from a residence on East Street in Christiansted. Johannes told police he was going to sell the louvers to a metal shop. Johannes was also in possession of a bag containing a two-foot long pipe, a crowbar and a hack saw when he was arrested.

Police believe these two suspects, Garcia and Johannes, are responsible for a series of burglaries that occurred recently in Christiansted.
