Crime Stoppers: Help Stop Crime

Crime prevention is up to all of us. We will not see a significant reduction in crime until everyone comes 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.

St. Croix: On Jan. 6 about 8:45 p.m., officers responded to a call about a gunshot victim in Mutual Homes. The victim said he was removing items from his car after arriving home with his girlfriend and children when he heard a car drive up. Several shots were fired at him, he said, and he sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was unable to describe the suspects. Help detectives identify the shooters.

St. John: On Jan. 12 at 11:30 a.m., a woman returned to her home in Estate Enighed and discovered her Chase ATM card and $1,000 cash had been stolen from her bedroom. Help police identify the thief(s) by telling Crime Stoppers what you may know.
