Crime Stoppers Needs Your Help

Crime Stoppers is asking your help to solve the following crimes. If you know something, say something. Even the smallest bit of information may be just what law enforcement needs to solve these cases.

St. Croix: On Tuesday June 15, between midnight and 3:30 a.m., burglar(s) broke into the Grove Place Fire Station through a locked door while fire fighters were out working to protect the home of a citizen. When the fire fighters returned to their home away from home, they found it had been desecrated by the thieves who had stolen three laptop computers, a DVR, and other items used by fire personnel during their tour of duty at the station. Help law enforcement identify the person(s) responsible for this shameful burglary.
St. John:
On Tuesday June 22, a villa on Ridge Rock Road was burglarized. The suspect entered through the kitchen door and removed a red Toshiba laptop, two book readers, a Zeiss spotting scope, and three cable boxes.
St. Thomas: On Saturday June 26 at 4:45 a.m., police received a call from the emergency room that two black males had dropped off an unresponsive male who had been shot several times, and who died of his injuries. Please help police figure out where, when and why this shooting occurred.
Community members can submit tips on these or any other crimes at www.CrimeStoppersUSVI.org or by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Your tips are completely anonymous, and the stateside operators are bilingual. If a tip leads to an arrest or the recovery of stolen property, illegal drugs, or weapons, the tipster receives a cash reward to be paid according to their instructions.
Only anonymous callers to Crime Stoppers are eligible for these cash rewards. Our technology makes it virtually impossible for anyone to trace your tip back to you. To learn how it works, visit www.CrimeStoppersUSVI.org .
Thanks to law enforcement successfully closing two more of your tips, Crime Stoppers has recently authorized two rewards totaling $2,857 that have not yet been paid. Please check the status of your tips to see if you are one of the tipsters.
