The Criminal Investigations Department arrested three more men in relation to burglaries in and around Road Town.
According to police, K’Shoy Alexander, 18, of Huntums Ghut and Juwan Potter, 22, of Baughers Bay were both charged with illegally entering the Royal Shop on Flemming Street late last month. A third male, Kyle Baronville, 28, was also charged with burglary and handling stolen goods in relation to a separate burglary.
Commissioner of Police Michael Matthews commended the CID burglary team specifically set up to identify the culprits responsible for the most recent business burglaries.
“The CID Burglary Team is making great inroads in apprehending those few individuals who obviously intend to make a living from businesses trying to get back on their feet from the storms of last year. I appreciate the long hours already spent by the burglary team and I expect there will be more arrests,” he said.
The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force continues to make its appeal for information into other persons who are breaking and illegally entering business premises. Persons can contact the RVIPF Intelligence Unit at 368-9339. All information will be held in the strictest confidence.
Detectives are also encouraging owners of electronic items, jewelry and tools to mark these items in concealed places, so they can be identified if recovered by Police.
