Crime Stoppers: Help End Senseless Violent Acts

Crime Stoppers is asking you to continue to help make the Virgin Islands a safe place to live, work and raise a family. If you know something, say something as the cost of all crime is ultimately paid for by the law-abiding citizens via higher prices and higher taxes.

St. John: On June 16 at 12:45 p.m., police received a report about a burglary at Calabash Boom. The complainant stated that the apartment was broken into and several items were stolen, including a box spring and a mattress. Other items were moved around. The suspects used a truck or a vehicle large enough to haul the stolen items. Please help police in solving this case.

St. Thomas: On June 7 at 2:30 p.m., a 40-year-old man was in the area of Windward Passage where he met an unidentified man to pick up a package. He was handed a bag with what appeared to contain counterfeit money and other illegal items. A fight erupted when he refused to accept the bag and the other man fired shots. Although he was not shot, he did sustain a stab wound from his own knife when he fell on the ground.

St. Croix: On June 14 about 10 p.m., a 911 operator was notified that three people were injured in a shooting at Aureo Diaz housing community. The three residents of the apartment were shot through the door by an undetermined number of assailants. If you were in this housing community and observed anyone with a gun or anyone running away from the apartment – or you might know the perpetrators – please let Crime Stoppers know. Please help put an end to senseless violent acts in our communities.
