THREE SUSPECTS PICKED UP AND RELEASED

St. Thomas police have reportedly released three males who were picked up Monday as suspects in a downtown store holdup.
The three have not been charged as the investigation continues into the armed robbery of the Snap Shop photo studio on Norre Gade.
The owner, Betsy Berretta, was injured during a struggle but no shots were fired by the three armed suspects who stormed the business at mid-afternoon Monday.
The three were picked up several hours later in Four Winds Plaza, and because one of them was wearing a cast on his arm, police believed he fit the description of one of the holdup men.
It is not clear whether police still consider the three prime suspects. At last word, authorities were seeking eyewitnesses who may be able to provide positive identification.
Police have asked anyone with information to contact police detectives at 774-4050 or emergency 911.
