The VIPD is looking for 20-year-old Samuel ‘Ghost’ Roberts.

Five months after they first issued a call for Samuel “Ghost” Roberts, the V.I. Police Department again issued a call for information leading to his arrest in a homicide case, repeating the warning they issued in February when they called him “armed and dangerous.”

According to the police, Roberts is a “person of interest” in a homicide. The news release didn’t include any information about the crime he is alleged to have been involved in.
