Crime Stoppers: Prevention is Up to Us

Crime prevention is up to all of us. We will not see a significant reduction in crime until more people come forward with what they know. Crime Stoppers allows you to do that anonymously, with no fear of retaliation and without having to testify in a court of law.

If you know something, say something. Even the smallest bit of information may be just what law enforcement needs to solve these cases.

St. Croix: On Nov. 23 between 1 and 3 a.m. in the Diamond Ruby area between WAPA and Kmart Appliances, Caleb Romero was shot to death. If you know anything about his murder, please let us know so police can identify and arrest the killer(s). The minimum reward for the arrest of a murder suspect is $1,500.

St. John: At 11:58 p.m. on Dec. 6 a man was assaulted by five or six males at Island Blues in Coral Bay. He was treated for head and body injuries. Tell us what you know. The minimum reward for the arrest of one of these thugs is $900.

St. Thomas: On Oct. 24 at 8 p.m., a woman discovered that her vehicle parked in the area of Market Square had been broken into. Her bag containing a 40-caliber handgun was stolen. The minimum reward for the arrest of a burglar is $714.

The 1,673 tips that have been submitted to Crime Stoppers are making a difference. So far they have enabled law enforcement to make 176 arrests and take 90 illegal weapons off the territory’s streets.

These 1,673 tips have also allowed Crime Stoppers to pay out more than $54,000 in cash rewards.
