Crime Stoppers is asking the community to help the VIPD solve the following crimes, and would like to remind you that any information, no matter how insignificant, may be just what the police need to solve these cases:
St. Croix: Police are seeking additional information on the Jan. 10 shooting at the Frontline Night Club. Several suspects hiding in nearby bushes opened fire, wounding at least three people. We need the names of suspects.
St. John: Police are asking residents who live near rental villa properties to be aware of rental cars with St. Thomas license plates in the area. Police believe some persons may be using these rental cars to burglarize villas and then return to St. Thomas. Please report color, make, model and license plate number.
St. Thomas: Police are seeking information on the suspect in a daylight robbery that occurred Thursday, April 2, in the Havensight area around 2 p.m. The suspect allegedly jumped out in front of a car and when the car stopped, he robbed the victim at knifepoint. The suspect was described as wearing all black, between 26 and 35 years old, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall, slim build with a beard and moustache.
