St. John Grand Larceny Suspect Curtney “Ghost” Chinnery Might Be Wanted in New York Too

St. John resident Curtney Chinnery’s past might be catching up with him. Chinnery, known to some locally as “Ghost,” was arrested on August 4 for grand larceny after the owner of Lizard’s Land-ing said he took more than $500 from the establishment — and authorities now believe he is also wanted in New York.

Money Taken From Freezer
The owner of Lizard’s Landing said the money was kept in a locked freezer, in which Chin-nery had a key to, according to V.I. Superior Court documents.

The business owner said Chinnery admitted to taking the money, according to one report.

A nationwide records search performed after Chinnery’s arrest on St. John revealed he is also known as Sid Graham, who was convicted of third degree burglary and fled a work release program in New York, according to authorities.

Matching Scars
Although a scar on the suspect’s forehead matches one identified as Graham, authorities have not confirmed that the two are the same man.

Fingerprints have not been useful in this case because Chinnery has supposedly “shaved off his fingertips,” according to a published report.

On Friday, August 11, V.I. Superior Court Judge Rhys Hodge ruled to hold the man known locally as “Ghost” for 30 days to allow V.I. Justice Department officials to confirm his identity and start the process of extraditing him to New York.

He is being held without bail.
