Officers from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Office on Friday apprehended a man at Cyril E. King Airport wanted for alleged robbery and unauthorized use of a firearm in the commission of a violent crime on St. Croix.
Luis Raul Torres, 31, presented himself for inspection on St. Thomas, seeking travel to Florida, according to the CBP. Officers arrested him when a name check revealed he was the subject of an outstanding warrant for robbery and unauthorized use of a firearm.
After verifying the warrant, CBP contacted the V.I. Police Department, which responded and took custody of the subject.
