Crime Stoppers Needs Your Help

Crime Stoppers is asking your help to solve the following crimes. If you know something, say something. Even the smallest bit of information may be just what law enforcement needs to identify and arrest the suspects.

St. Croix: Our public housing communities are being plagued by vandals, who are stealing aluminum windows, electrical wiring, and copper tubing from propane gas tanks used by residents for cooking; it is all being sold as scrap metal. Most often, the persons involved are not residents of the community where the crime is committed. When we come together to help our neighbors, we are helping our community grow and prosper. Give law enforcement the information to identify and prosecute the ones responsible for these incidents.

St. John: On Saturday, February 18, at 6:00 a.m., the housekeeper for Villa Venuroso at 17A-1 Enighed was robbed by a male who came through the northern front door, pointed a knife at her, and demanded her money. She gave him $300.00 from her purse, and then he slapped her on both sides of her face before running away. The suspect, who was barefoot, was wearing short black pants and a long black hoodie with a black shirt over his face.

St. Thomas: On February 24, at about 6:35 p.m., police responded to a report of shots fired in the area of Pearl M. Pearson Gardens and found a deceased black male lying partially under a truck with multiple gunshot wounds. While on the scene the officers learned there were two other victims at the Roy Lester Schneider Hospital, both of whom had also been shot.
