Crime Stoppers: Virginia Homicide, Local Burglary, Shots Fired

Crime Stoppers ask you to continue to help law enforcement 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 of the community via higher prices and higher taxes.

St. Croix: J’Wa “Bala” Charlery is wanted for homicide in Richmond, Va. Charlery is charged with the shooting death of woman in a Richmond hotel room in November of 2014.
