Tip Leads to STT Robbery Suspect Arrest

Police have arrested Koi Thomas on suspicion of robbery, based on surveillance video, community tips and eyewitnesses.

Around 10:30 a.m. Monday May 23, police responded to a reported robbery at Nisky Center, according to a Police Department release. Officers reportedly spoke with the victim who stated that she came out of Subway located in Nisky Center, when a Black man asked her for money.
The victim said that she told the person she does not any have money, and the suspect snatched her Gucci gold chain from her neck, reportedly valued at $1500.

On Tuesday, at about 6 p.m. the Criminal Investigation Bureau reviewed surveillance from Subway which apparently showed Koi Thomas who was reportedly known by several Virgin Islands Police Officers.

Detectives of the Criminal Investigation Bureau responded to a tip that the suspect for a robbery was standing around Fort Mylner in the area of the coconut man.
