Crime Stoppers: Step Up

Crime Stoppers asks you to continue helping law enforcement control crime. If you know something, say something, as the cost of all crime is ultimately paid for by the law abiding citizens of the community via higher prices and higher taxes. Even the smallest bit of information may be just what is needed to identify and arrest the criminals involved in the following crimes.

St. Croix: On Sept. 29 at 6:45 p.m., 30-year-old Leodel Isles was shot and killed in the vicinity of a vacant parking lot across from Cane Bay beach. A witness gave a description of a light-skinned male with dreadlocks leaving the area on foot. Tell us what you know and help stop the violence that is taking the lives of our young men.

St. John: On Sept. 27 at 12:30 p.m., police received a report that an iPhone had been stolen from the area of the High Tide Restaurant in Cruz Bay. Please help police recover and return this phone.

St. Thomas: On Sept. 28 at 11:25 p.m., officers were called to the Frenchtown area during the "Night Out Against Gun Violence" event. Officers discovered an unresponsive black male lying on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds. The man, identified as 27-year-old Andre Christian, died at the scene. Another man that had been shot several times was taken to the hospital in a private vehicle. If you know anything about these shootings, please tell us as your information will help to put an end to the violence.
