This week the U.S. Marshals Service has asked us to feature the following story in an effort to find a fugitive believed to be on St. Croix. If you know something, say something.

J’wa Charlery, a 19-year-old black male who goes by the street name “Balla,” is wanted on first degree murder charges stemming from an incident in Virginia on Nov. 2, 2014. Charlery allegedly shot a female at a hotel in Richmond and is now believed to be in St. Croix. Charlery is 6 feet tall and weighs 160 pounds. If you have seen him or know of his whereabouts, please let Crime Stoppers know.

It is a crime to harbor a fugitive.

Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters.
