Crime Stoppers: Help Stop Crime

Crime Stoppers needs your help to solve the following crimes. If you know something, say something, as law enforcement cannot control crime without your help.

St. Croix: On Feb. 13 about 8:50 a.m., Quisqueyana, a money transfer agency located west of the Jiffy Mart in the Bassin Triangle area, was robbed by an armed male. He forced his way in just as an employee had finished serving a customer and was closing the door.

Police believe the customer may have been an accomplice. The robber is light skinned, about 5-feet-9-inches tall, and was wearing a black hoodie and a gray mask. The possible dark-skinned male accomplice is also about 5-feet-9-inches tall, has long braids or dreadlocks, was wearing a white T-shirt and was clean shaven. The two were last seen running through the Bassin Triangle Apartment Complex. Tell us what you know about this robbery.

St. John: On Saturday about 4 p.m., a man parked his vehicle in the area of Annaberg. When he returned an hour later he discovered someone had removed the hard top cover from the passenger side of his silver Jeep Wrangler and stolen $350 from his wallet.

St. Thomas: On Feb. 8 about 10:45 p.m., an employee of Texas Pit BBQ was driving his car near the rear parking area of the business’ storage facility when two armed, masked individuals, wearing all black, pointed what appeared to be an AK-47 in his face and said "get out of the car, turn around, and walk."

He complied. The carjackers then drove away in an eastern direction with Texas Pit’s bank deposit, firing a single shot as they left.

Tell Crime Stoppers what you know about these, or any other crimes, at www.CrimeStoppersUSVI.org or by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You can also text “USVI” plus your message to CRIMES (274637). 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.
