Two young St. John men went on a crime spree on Saturday night, June 7, stealing a car from The Marketplace, wrecking the car and destroying about $10,000 worth of property at the Sirenusa luxury condominium development.
Management at Sirenusa reported vandalism at the construction site overlooking Cruz Bay around 7:55 a.m. Sunday morning, June 8, according to the V.I. Police Department’s Leader Jurgen Command incident blotter.
Two 18-year-old men stole a Jeep Cherokee from the parking lot of The Marketplace late Saturday night and drove it up to Sirenusa sometime between midnight and 7 a.m., according to management at the condo site.
“It looks like they got the car stuck,” he said. “They destroyed the car and smashed through all the windows. Then they broke two windows in one of the homes at Sirenusa.”
The suspects were in a downtown bar the next night bragging about the incident, according to the Sirenusa manager.
While officials intend to press charges, the suspects had not been arrested as of press time.
