Crime Stoppers: Times are Tough, Crime is Not the Answer

Crime Stoppers needs your help to solve the following crimes. If you know something, say something. Even the smallest bit of information may be just what law enforcement needs to solve these cases.

St. Croix: On July 18 about 7 a.m., 40-year-old Edward Williams of Estate Calquohoun was found dead in the driver’s seat of a grey Ford Taurus on Hard Labor Road in Estate Grove Place. The car was parked halfway off the road. Emergency medical technicians said he had been shot. The minimum reward for the arrest of a murder suspect is $1,500.

St. John: On July 15 at 2:45 p.m., a home in Estate Bellevue was burglarized. Items stolen included an Acer laptop computer, speakers and over $3,000 in cash. The victim could not determine how the burglar(s) gained access to her home. The minimum reward for the arrest of a burglar is $714 plus 10 percent of the value of all property recovered. Maximum reward is $2,500.
