Crime Stoppers: Crime is a Problem

Crime Stoppers recognizes that crime is a problem in our territory, and unless we, the law abiding citizens, do our part, we fear it is going to get worse. 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 Oct. 30 at approximately 11:30 p.m., Winnelta Frederick became the latest victim of gun violence. Be a part of the solution by telling us what you know so the police can arrest the killer(s) and help bring closure to Frederick’s family.

St. John: On Oct. 18 between 2 and 3:30 p.m., a locked rental jeep was broken into in the Salt Pond Bay parking lot. The burglar stole a $4,000 engagement ring from the locked glove box. The ring belongs to a couple who were celebrating their engagement. Help put a smile back on their faces by telling us what you know. A picture of the ring is on our website.

St. Thomas: On Sept. 7 at 10:30 p.m. in the Anna’s Retreat area, 30-year-old David Payne was found lying motionless and unresponsive near the entrance to his residence, having died from multiple gunshot wounds. Tell us what you may know about this senseless killing.
