Crimes of the Week: Crime Stoppers Needs the Community's Help

Crime Stoppers is asking the community to help the VIPD solve the following crimes:
St. Croix: Police on St. Croix are seeking information on the whereabouts of Marcos Gomez who is wanted in connection with an assault third degree and carrying or using a dangerous weapon during the commission of a violent crime. Gomez is a light-skinned Hispanic male whose last known address is the Walter I. M. Hodge Pavilion housing community.
St. John: Police on St. John are asking for specific information on suspects involved in burglaries at rental villa properties, private homes and businesses.
St. Thomas: Police on St. Thomas are asking the community to come forward with any information they might have in connection with the shooting deaths of two people at about 1:28 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 25, in the Double Play Bar and Restaurant on lower Kronprindsens Gade.
Crime Stoppers is pleased to report it paid its first cash reward last week. In addition, we received 12 new tips, which brings our total tips received to 46. Law Enforcement Coordinator, Lt. Thomas Hannah, VIPD, made the following statement: “To all residents, thank you for what you are doing for our community. To the tipsters, your tips have assisted with the recent arrests of robbery and assault suspects, the recovery of illegal drugs in the Frederiksted area and have provided helpful information on pending investigations. Thank you for your valuable assistance to VIPD and law enforcement agencies in the Virgin Islands. We received seven valuable tips in a recent 24-hour period. Keep up the great work!”
Anyone with information on these or any other crimes can immediately call Crime Stoppers USVI at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can also submit a tip online at crimestoppersusvi.org, or by texting "USVI" plus your message to CRIMES (274637). You will remain anonymous and you do not have to testify in court.
