Crime Stoppers: Reduce the Cost of Crime

Crime has a cost and it is ultimately paid by law abiding citizens. Reducing that cost puts money back in your pocket. If you know something, say something, as law enforcement cannot control crime without your help.

St. Croix: On Feb. 25 shortly before 2 p.m. on the Drive Inn Road in the vicinity of the shanty and PC Landscaping, a female taxi bus driver had her purse stolen by a male passenger she had picked up in the Barron Spot area. The armed robber ran in an easterly direction into the bushes; he is described as being slim with a light complexion, 5-foot-3-inches to 5-feet-6-inches tall, and carrying a black backpack.

The suspect wore a white T-shirt, black pants and a black baseball cap with a red and white design on the front. There was a female passenger on the bus who exited before the driver turned onto Route 69. If anyone remembers seeing a male during this time that fits this description, let Crime Stoppers know.

St. John: On Feb. 5 about 3:15 p.m., someone entered an office at the St. John School of Arts and stole an employee’s iPhone 5 that was on top of a desk. It had a gray and white cover; tell us what you may know about this theft.

St. Thomas: On Jan. 30 an employee of Native Son discovered that $130,000 worth of commuter tickets were missing from the company. If anyone has, or does, offer to sell you tickets, give Crime Stoppers the details.

Be part of the solution. Tell what you know about these or any other crimes at www.CrimeStoppersUSVI.org or by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can also text “USVI” plus your message to CRIMES (274637).

If your tip leads to an arrest or the recovery of stolen property, illegal drugs or weapons, you will receive a cash reward paid according to your instructions. The minimum cash reward for the arrest of a thief is $536 plus 10 percent of the retail value of property recovered. Crime Stoppers’ maximum reward is $2,500.
