STT Man Gets 10 Years on Firearm Charge

Arthur Greaves Jr., 20, of St. Thomas, was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in prison after being convicted of possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number, U.S. Attorney Gretchen Shappert announced.

District Court Judge Curtis Gomez also sentenced Greaves to five years of supervised release and 300 hours of community service, and ordered Greaves to pay a special assessment of $100.

According to court documents, on May 17, 2018, Greaves pointed what the U.S. Attorney’s Office called “an A-15 rifle” at an individual as the individual and his four-year-old-son attempted to enter a residence on Garden Street. Greaves grabbed a gold chain from the individual’s neck and ran to a building on Bunker Hill.

Responding officers discovered him hiding under a stairwell, the court records shows. Greaves directed the officers to an adjacent abandoned building to reveal the rifle, which had its serial number removed, along with a double stack magazine and cartridges.

This case was investigated by the Virgin Islands Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Everard Potter.
