Crime Stoppers Asks for Help

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

St. Croix: On the night of June 13, four individuals ran out of the bushes and confronted a man at his home in Mount Pellier, Frederiksted. They took the man inside his home where they tied him up and began to torture him as they demanded money. The four assailants got away with the victim’s cell phone, wallet and $500 in cash. The victim had to be hospitalized for his injuries. The minimum reward for an arrest is $900.

St. John: On the morning of June 12, the director of Public Works discovered that 10 Wanli tires had been removed from the department’s warehouse in Susannaberg. The value of the missing tires is $5,000. The minimum reward for an arrest is $536 plus 10 percent of the retail value of stolen property recovered.

St. Thomas: On Thursday about 12:30 a.m., two men were in the back of a safari leaving Iggies Beach Bar and Grill at Bolongo Bay Hotel and were shot at by unknown persons in an apparent robbery attempt. Both men sustained gunshot wounds. The minimum reward for an arrest is $900.
