Crime Stoppers Pays; Crime Doesn't

Crime Stoppers pays. Let’s make sure that crime doesn’t. If you know something, say something as law enforcement cannot control crime without the assistance of the community. Even the smallest bit of information may be just what law enforcement needs to solve these cases.

St. Croix: On Jan. 5 between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m., a residence in Estate Diamond was burglarized. Items stolen include a Mac Book Pro 13-inch silver laptop computer and more than $5,000 worth of jewelry. For a complete list of the stolen jewelry, click on “Crime of the Week” on the Crime Stoppers website.

St. John: On Dec. 13 at 9 a.m., a couple staying at the Westin Resort discovered several of their personal belongings had been stolen from their suite. The items stolen include a woman’s John Hardy bracelet and Maui Jim shades, and a man’s Essa Kawaja watch. Total retail value of the stolen items is more $11,000.

St. Thomas: On Dec. 8 at 3:50 a.m., police officers responded to a call of shots fired in the vicinity of the Metropolis Night Club and Doctor’s Choice Pharmacy in the Sub Base area. The officers were advised that a volley of gunfire erupted between at least two shooters and that a male victim was being transported to the Roy L. Schneider Medical Center. The victim, Keith Dawson Jr., died at the hospital from a gunshot wound.

The minimum cash reward for the arrest of a burglar is $714 plus 10 percent of the retail value of property recovered. The minimum reward for the arrest of a homicide suspect is $1,500. Crime Stoppers’ maximum reward is $2,500.
