Crime Stoppers: Continue to Speak Up

Crime Stoppers pays. Let’s make sure that crime doesn’t. If you know something, say something as law enforcement cannot control crime without the help of the law abiding community

St. Croix: Copper thieves are not only cutting off communication with families, they are potentially preventing police or EMS from being able to respond to emergencies. Law enforcement needs your help to put an end to these thefts. Tell us what you know or suspect, and if you think you see the thieves in action please call 911 immediately.

St. John: On Dec. 2 about 1:10 p.m., police received a report that a wallet and an iPhone 4 were stolen from Quiet Mon Pub in Cruz Bay. The victim laid her cell phone and wallet that contained IDs and credit cards on the bar counter for a few minutes. When she returned the items were missing. Tell us what you know.

St. Thomas: On Dec 3, two armed Ranger America security guards were in the vicinity of Lockhart Mall picking up a deposit from Kmart when a gunman fired several shots at them. The shooter escaped from the scene with a money bag containing over $33,000. A suspect, 28-yr-old Richard Hodge Jr., was apprehended but the money bag was not recovered. VIPD is seeking the community’s help in recovering the money.
