Crime Stoppers Empowers You to Make Yourselves Safer

Crime Stoppers empowers you, the law abiding citizens, to make your neighborhoods, schools and businesses safer by reporting information while remaining anonymous. If you know something, say something.

St. Croix:
In the past two weeks, the Castle Burke area has been plagued with robberies and burglaries. The victims of these crimes are the most vulnerable: our young and our elderly. In one incident, two minors were accosted in the area of the bus shanty by two males with a gun. In others, several homes occupied by elderly people were burglarized. The crimes have occurred between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. The suspects have been described as a young black male and a young Hispanic male, using a dark colored older model Jeep or Ford SUV and a small green pick-up truck. Help police identify and arrest these criminals.

St. John:
On Nov. 29, 2012, at about 10 a.m., a woman placed her wedding ring on the sink in the bathroom at Grande Bay Resort while she washed her hands. At 3 p.m. she realized she had left her ring in the bathroom and went back to get it, but it was gone. The ring, valued at $10,000, has a 3-carat center stone set in white gold with 1.8 carats of circular diamonds throughout the band. Help the police find this ring.

St. Thomas: On Jan. 29 at 5 p.m., a woman returned to her home in Estate Hull Bay and discovered it had been burglarized. The burglars(s) stole four 18-carat gold chains that were engraved with the initials “B Q S J,” $100 in cash and the alarm system, including cameras. Tell us what you know about this burglary.
