Crime Stoppers Needs Your Help

Crime Stoppers recognizes that crime is a problem in the territory, and unless we 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: The V.I. Police Department requests your assistance in identifying the individuals responsible for a series of burglaries and robberies throughout the island. Tell us what you know, including the names of the people buying the stolen property, so law enforcement can put a stop to these crimes.

St. John: On Nov. 26 at 7 a.m., an employee of KIWI Construction arrived at a job site in Peter Bay and discovered that an orange steel bender valued at $45,000 had been stolen sometime over the weekend.

St. Thomas: On Nov. 28, a man in the area of Wimmelskafts Gade was stabbed in the lower back by another male who attempted to rob him. When the wounded man was running from his attacker, he noticed that three other individuals were involved.

The minimum cash reward for the arrest of an armed robber is $900. For a burglar it is $714. In both cases Crime Stoppers pays 10 percent of the retail value of property recovered. Our maximum reward is $2,500.
