Crime Stoppers: Reduce the Cost of Crime

Crime and corruption has a cost which is always paid by the law abiding citizens of the community through higher prices and higher taxes. Reducing that cost puts money back in your pocket. If you know something, say something, as law enforcement cannot control crime without the help of the community.

St. Croix: During the last two weeks, robberies have occurred throughout St. Croix by masked men dressed in black carrying various types of guns. In most instances, the robbers were described as being black or Hispanic and less than 6 feet in height. The robberies occurred primarily in Estate Glynn, Williams Delight, and Christiansted town. Help police identify and arrest these robbers before someone is seriously hurt or killed.

St. John: Sometime between July 15 and 18 at the dock at Coral Bay, someone stole a Yamaha boat engine from a dingy. The model number of the dingy is E15CMHS. Tell us what you know so police can identify the thief and recover the engine.

St. Thomas: Police need your help to identify and arrest the person(s) involved in a rash of vehicle break-ins that resulted in a substantial loss of personal items by the victims. The break-ins occurred from April 20-29, mostly between midnight and 2 a.m. from Norre Gade to Market Square, including near Seven Wonders, the Lutheran Church, Nye Gade, Kronprindsens Gade, Wimmelskafts Gade, and Veterans Drive near the Windward Passage Hotel.
