Crime Stoppers: Help Solve the Following Crimes

Crime Stoppers thanks you for making a difference in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Let’s help make the USVI one of the safest places in the world to live, work and raise a family. To do that we have to make sure that no crime goes unsolved – and to do that, everyone needs to speak up. If you know something, say something.

St. Croix: On Jan. 16 the territory recorded its first homicide for the new year. Around 5:05 p.m. police received a report of a shooting in Estate Whim. When police arrived, they found 29-year-old Jose Hernandez of Marley Homes dead from multiple gunshot wounds. Witnesses said that after the shots were heard, they saw a vehicle leaving the area at a high rate of speed. Please help police solve this murder.

St. Thomas: At 3:30 a.m. on Dec. 25, 2014, a 52-year-old black male reported that while walking in the area of Wimmelskafts Gade (Back Street) he was shot in the leg by someone he could not see. If you witnessed this, please let Crime Stoppers know.

St. John: On Jan. 2 about 11:20 p.m., officers were dispatched to the area of Estate Adrien in response to a burglary. The resident informed the officers that between 6:15 and 9:45 p.m. someone broke into their home through the bathroom door by jimmying the lock. A large sum of cash, bankcards and an iPhone 4S in a purple case were stolen.

The above crimes could easily have happened to you. Please continue to work for the good of all. Tell us what you know about these, or any other crimes, at or call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can also text “USVI” plus your message to CRIMES (274637).

If your tip leads to an arrest or the recovery of stolen property, illegal drugs or weapons, in addition to having made your home a safer place, you will receive a cash reward to be paid according to your instructions.

Please note: our technology makes it impossible for anyone, including Crime Stoppers, to find out who submitted a tip.
