Crime Stoppers: Be Part of the Solution

Crime Stoppers empowers law abiding citizens to make neighborhoods, schools and businesses safer by reporting information while remaining totally anonymous. If you know something, say something as law enforcement needs to know what you know.

St. Croix: On May 1, police responded to a report of a foul odor coming from a residence in Estate Whim. After gaining entrance to the home, police found the lifeless bodies of calypsonians Kassaun "K-Force" Baptiste and Jose "the Mighty TNL" Navarro. Police suspect the men had been dead for about one week. If you know something police should know, please speak up.

St. John: On April 18 at 3:45 a.m., a woman reported to police that a male had entered her residence in upper Cruz Bay while she and her boyfriend were sleeping. The man stole several items from the residence including a wallet and money. When discovered, he fled on foot towards the Islandia Building. Tell us what you know so police can identify this burglar.

St. Thomas: On April 29 at 11 a.m., a man in the area of Estate Tutu was shot at by an unknown individual. The man was wounded by the gunfire. VIPD is seeking your help in identifying the shooter. Tell us what you know.
