Stakeout in Deli’s Front Window Nabs Wanted Man


ENIGHED – What do you call four uniformed V.I. Police Officers and a V.I. National Park Ranger sitting at a table in the front window of Sam and Jack’s Deli on the third floor of The St. John Marketplace on a Friday afternoon — without any food, or even coffee in front of them?

A St. John stakeout.

The Friday afternoon post-lunch lull at the popular deli/restaurant was broken by law enforcement activity around 2 p.m. June 20 as the V.I. Police Department got their man — putting a 50-something worker for a local small general contractor up against the wall and into handcuffs. 

Someone from the newspaper would have to go to the V.I. Police Department’s Leander Jurgen Command in Cruz Bay and be cleared for public access to the log of activity to provide that information to the public.
