Two Warrants Lead to Successful Arrest

A St. Croix man is facing robbery and reckless endangerment charges after being served with two arrest warrants and a search warrant, the V.I. Police Department reported Thursday.

The robbery occurred January 26, by Valmy Thomas Sporting Goods, where Darnley N. Petersen, along with two others, robbed an adult at gunpoint. The reckless endangerment occurred March 1, on Prince Street, Christiansted, where Peterson was caught on surveillance camera firing his firearm while others were present, according to the report.

The search warrant was executed at a family member’s home, and during the search of the dwelling, a fully loaded firearm with a loaded extended magazine was recovered along with marijuana. Petersen, 22-years-old, was arrested and taken into custody without incident for both charges. The bail was set separately at $50,000 and $75,000 for each incident, the report stated.
