Break-ins on St. John

Police on St. John are investigating three separate break-ins that recently occurred at the Caneel Bay apartments, Estate Enighed, and Sirenusa Condos.

On Jan. 14, police responded to two break-ins. The victim told police that he was inspecting the Sirenusa Condos and noticed damages to one unit including a broken glass dining room table, broken ceiling tiles, and damage to a door. However, nothing seemed to be missing.

On the same day, another victim told police that when he returned about 11 p.m. to his Estate Enighed home after being gone for several hours, he noticed that someone broke into his apartment through a locked door. Several pieces of jewelry valued at $4,000 were missing.

Saturday police were advised of a break-in at the Caneel Bay apartments. The victim told police that he left the apartment at about 10:45 a.m. When he returned at about 9:30 p.m., he realized that an unknown person entered the apartment through a glass door and removed a 50-inch television and a black and red laptop computer.

These cases are being followed up by Criminal Investigations Bureau detectives on St. John. Anyone with any information regarding these break-ins is urged to call 911, Crime Stoppers USVI at 1-800-222-8477, or the St. John police station at 693-8880.
