Crime Stoppers Needs Your Help

Crime Stoppers needs your help to solve the following cases. If you know something, say something, as law enforcement cannot control crime without your help. Even the smallest bit of information may be just what law enforcement needs.

St. Croix: VIPD would like to remind everyone to keep a watchful eye for suspicious activity that might be related to the theft and resale of copper and other metals. Unfortunately, copper theft has become all too common throughout the United States, so it is not a problem unique to the Virgin Islands. Please notify law enforcement if you observe any suspicious behavior, especially around construction sites or vacant houses. In the event you feel a need to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers.

St. John: Law enforcement is still looking for Seara Samantha James, who was reported missing in October of 2011. Miss James was last seen at the foot of Power Boyd Plantation Hill. Please help locate her by telling us what you know. A picture of Miss James is available on our website at www.CrimeStoppersUSVI.org .

St. Thomas: In the early afternoon of Saturday, April 14, Majestic Jewelers, located in the Al Cohens Mall, was robbed by two armed, masked men. They entered the store and demanded that the employees “get down on the floor and don’t move.” The robbers then removed jewelry from the show cases, and drove off in a silver or grey Dodge Caravan. The minivan was later discovered parked in the Paul M. Pearson Gardens housing community.

Let’s continue to help make our community a safer place to live by submitting information 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 speak several languages. If your tip leads to an arrest or the recovery of stolen property, illegal drugs, or weapons you will receive a cash reward to be paid according to your instructions. The minimum reward for the arrest of a thief is $536. For the arrest of an armed robber it is $900, plus in all cases, 10% of the retail value of property recovered, up to a total reward of $2,500.
