Crime Stoppers Needs Your Help

Crime Stoppers is asking for help in solving the following crimes. If you know something, say something, as law enforcement cannot control crime without the help of the entire law abiding community.

St. Thomas: On May 17 about 12:40 a.m., a man in the area of Bethlehem House Hospital Ground was heading towards his safari taxi when he was held up by two masked men who were armed with a silver hand gun.
