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, as law enforcement needs to know what you know. Even the smallest bit of information may be just what is needed to identify and arrest the criminals involved in the following crimes.
St. Croix: There have been several incidents of gun shots being discharged in the Frederiksted town, La Grange and William’s Delight areas over the past week that have led to death and injuries to residents. Tell us what you know so police can identify and arrest the shooters. Let’s work together to keep our families and children safe.
St. John: On Jan. 19 about 10 a.m., officers responded to a call of a male lying dead in his apartment in Chocolate Hole. The victim, 41-year-old James “Jim” Malfetti, had fatal injuries in his neck area. Help police solve this homicide by telling us what you know.
