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 identify and arrest these criminals.

St. Croix: On July 16 around 1 a.m., police responded to a call of shots fired at the Lorraine Village housing community, where police found the lifeless body of Francisco "Kiko" Budhoo lying on the ground in the vicinity of Building 27. While Budhoo had a criminal history and was recently released from prison, and it is possible his death was the result of retaliation for something he did to someone else, none of that justifies this killing.

Police cannot identify and arrest Budhoo’s killer(s) or solve any of the other homicides in the territory by themselves; nor can they put an end to the senseless killings of our children and grandchildren. Often it requires citizens like you to speak up. Doing so makes you part of the solution.

St. John: On Sept. 2 at 3 p.m., a man reported that his iPad, which had been packed in his suitcase, was removed by someone when he was on board the Transportation Service Ferry. The iPad is valued at $700. Tell Crime Stoppers what you know.
