Crime Stoppers: Make Sure No Crime Goes Unsolved

Crime prevention is up to all of us and, thanks to the community, we are seeing a reduction in crime. Please continue to speak up so the USVI becomes one of the safest places in the world to live, work and raise a family.

If you know something, say something. Make sure no crime goes unsolved.

St. Croix: On July 23, 2013, in the Mt. Victory area, the body of Earl James was found inside his burned vehicle, a white Toyota Tacoma with the license plate CEQ-323. The night before, officers received a call that unknown individuals had stopped a truck similar to the one owned by Charles in the vicinity of Concordia Villas Housing Community and the Alexander Henderson Elementary School. The stopped vehicle was described as a white Toyota Tacoma driven by a black male. Tell us what you know about the people who were involved in stopping this vehicle.

St. John: VIPD continues to seek the community’s assistance in solving the homicide of James “Jim” Malfetti, who was found dead in his apartment in Chocolate Hole. A 46-inch Sanyo TV and a gray iPhone 5S were stolen from his home. Please tell us what you know about this murder or of anyone selling a similar TV or iPhone.
