Police Arrest Two on St. John

The V.I. Police on St. John arrested two men Friday on charges including gun violations.

Khalid Smith of St. John and an unnamed individual remain in custody, according to David Cannonier, assistant police chief for St. John.

St. John has recently undergone a rash of crimes including seven car break-ins, three burglaries and three armed robberies.

Smith and the other suspect are “persons of interest” in a burglary and an armed robbery which took place on Wednesday, Dec. 19, but the present charges are for previous events, Cannonier said.
