Man Charged with Burglarizing Businesses, Stealing Safes

Warrington Marsham Jr. was arrested Sunday and charged with several counts of burglary and grand larceny. Detectives from the V.I,. Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Bureau said Marsham burglarized offices at the Urman Victor Fredericks Marine Terminal at Red Hook.

The burglaries occurred Sept. 10. According to the case agent, Detective Sehkera Tyson, three offices at the marine terminal were burglarized. The detective said the investigation indicated the safe inside the dock masters office was missing, the safe inside the St. John Ticketing office was missing and the Chief Warfinger’s office was burglarized. Security surveillance equipment was destroyed and several surveillance recording devices were missing.

Security devices located in another area of the terminal were still operational and showed a suspect burglarizing the offices.

Police said Marsham was inside the terminal during business hours and remained inside until the facility was secured for the night. Further investigation by detectives positively identified Marsham as the suspect.

The 38-year-old Marsham was charged with three counts of first-degree burglary, five counts of grand larceny and two counts of destruction of property. His bail was set at $250,000 and he was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections.

Detective Tyson said the case remains under active investigation and Marsham may be linked to other burglaries involving the removing of safes from various premises. She also said Marsham was recently released from jail after serving time on prior criminal charges.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Tyson at 340-714-9801.
