They were on my street (Mt. Pleasant East area) on Wed afternoon when I got home. They were parked at the end of the street and after I passed they followed me up the street and went past my house when I pulled in the driveway.
The info about the truck was posted on Facebook later that day and said these are the guys suspected of the robberies in the Sierra Verde area over the past month. Wish I'd known when I saw them on my street - I'd have taken their picture as I passed by and posted it everywhere for people to see!

Which house in Seven Hills was robbed? I haven't heard from anyone about it.

How is it that the car license plate was obtained, the police stop the driver and just because the driver said he wasn't there he was let go. Wouldn't you think he would be brought to the police station, interogated and have potential witnesses identify him.
How do the police operate down here? Do you have to be caught in the middle of the robbery in order to be arrested? I guess it doesn't really matter because the robbers are probably friends or relatives of some politician and will be let go anyway.

Welcome to the U.S. Virgin Islands where this kind of "crap" happens. I never cease to be amazed, stunned, & shocked at this kind of police behavior.

I'm guessing you haven't been here long.

My home was broken into by armed robbers in '03 in broad daylight. My neighbor saw the unfamiliar truck and knew no one was home and asked them what they were doing. They shot at him, his dog, and his five year old daughter and then escaped in a pickup truck that my neighbor had the presence of mind to GET THE LICENSE PLATE NUMBER FROM. Despite immediate presence of the police and living in a bit of a roundabout (only one way in and one way out), the police were "unable to locate" the robbers. It took two weeks of phone calls to the police department from an attorney to get them to run the plate number and question the owner of the vehicle. The owner told the police that "he forgot" who he lent his car to on the day of the robbery, and the matter was completely dropped.

Welcome to the VI.

Or the upscale condo breakin, 2nd floor, in through the balcony with the residents inside. Gun and knife, for some reason they left the knife behind. The perpetrators were recognized, so folks could tell the police who did it...and the knife was evidence, with fingerprints etc, likely. Supervisory Police response days later when questioned as to why no one was questioned, never mind arrested...there are always two sides to a story. Nothing ever done.

Hey all,
The VIPD has a Facebook page @ http://www.facebook.com/USVIPD

Using their social media page to inform / disseminate this sort of information would be useful.

They claim to have over 3,000 page views on a single posting which is over 10 X the amount that this post has so far.

While traffic stops and silly* theme songs may be having a positive effect, we need to remember that the VIPD works for the residents of the VI and we have the responsibility to publicly hold them accountable. So far, they have been responsive (if somewhat defensive) to criticism, which is a good start.

Jesse

Or that shooting by an Assistant AG at Mill Harbor a couple of years ago when the cook tried to attack the owner and customers with a machete? That was twenty yards from my condo. I lived there for two seasons and never got used to the constant gunfire from the public housing complex across the street. I remember once involuntarily diving behind the couch because the shots were so loud and went on for so long.

One of the years I lived there, my upstairs neighbor (a contractor for WAPA) had his girlfriend move in. Girlfriend liked to play country music REALLY loud, and I once asked if she could turn it down. She consistently threatened to kill me and beat me up in the parking lot after that. Turns out she was on probation in the States and didn't have permission to be in the VI. I finally called the VI police about the death threats and when they showed up at my condo, they went upstairs to get her side of the story, came back down, and told me her boyfriend told me she was "sleeping" and "unavailable". I'm like: "WAKE HER THE FUCK UP! YOU'RE THE POLICE FER CRISSAKES!" They left without doing anything. I finally got her evicted after I contacted her boyfriend's boss in Florida.

Wow, I guess I've been lucky the worse thing I've ever gotten was dirty looks from a cop when I took his parking space in fromt of a hotel, that was 15 years ago
