Security Cameras are great!!
Where did you hear this? What did they charge him with?
One has been apprehended; VIPD is actively looking for the one with short hair (David Armstrong). You will hear the request on the news later today and tomorrow for any information on his whereabouts
The pictures are posted on the bulletin board outside Schoomer Bay Market.
According to CrimeStoppers USVI they were both arrested this afternoon.
What did they charge them with?
Yeah for crime stoppers!!! I agree about posting pics, stores hang bounced check wouldn't we all agree this is more egregious?
We are now in an era on STX where we have some very good, honorable, and diligent police officers. The officer who requested that the pics be taken down was the officer with a warrant for arrest of identified perpetrators on Sunday. They thug was served on Monday, and the other will be caught, regardless of where he tries to run to...he's gotta come out of the bush at some time!
KUDOS to the Good Guys of VIPD. Things really are changing...and it is the community that propels the positive action.

Does anyone know what kind of camera's this homeowner used? Excellent.
someone told me that of course one caught and the other is so scared going to turn himself in.
would like to know the brand of cameras also. just think....is everyone one had some kind of camera outside of business or house the crime could actually go down. i also think that if you install security cameras you should get either a tax break or insurance break on homeowners.
Now lets see what actually happens to these guys. not just a slap on the wrist and don't do it again from the judge.
make an example.
And again, why aren't cameras in every school?
That is great news. They were great PICS.
We had a security camera up at our front door that the last owner had up, no, it didn't work but we left it there hoping it would deter. When we were robbed, they came up to the front door and knocked it down. How did they know it wasn't working? They must of thought it worked because why would they knock it down. That's just plain ballsy if you ask me.
I guess the best way is to install them so they can't knock them down. Maybe up high looking down.
we have cameras up high . i mean really high. course they are fake. (don't tell anyone said that) but they look real and even have a place where you put batteries and they move. but now thinking about real ones. except i dont want to see myself on camera.....hear it adds pounds.
The best way to mount security cameras is so they can't be seen at all.
Think lipstick camera like here. http://www.maxmax.com/aXNiteBulletCameras.htm
Then you put dummies in the center of the visual range of the real (hidden) cameras where it's a good stretch to reach them.
Now if someone goes to reach up and knock down the dummies (bait) you get really nice shots of someone destroying private property.
I got an email that advised me the cameras used in those shots was Toshiba. I checked them out a couple of days ago and the price is about right for the market. However, from my research they are not night vision. I'm looking at night vision ones as well.
Here's the statement about the cameras that was passed on to me, "The security camera that took the photos is a Toshiba IK-WB15A.".
The guy in the tank top was seen in Sunny Isle this afternoon. Guess he made bail.
We got 1 illegal gun off the street and 2 suspects on the books...Good Job STX!!
saw this in the papers today, wish i'd kept the copy but it belonged to someone else. i am interested to see how it all shakes out, because the criminal element is watching too.
2 are out on bail according to today's AVIS; it also mentioned they had past criminal records.
Here's the DN article from today about it:
