ST. CROIX, USVI - A 19-year-old man was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary after breaking and entering into his mother’s house in Concordia and taking items without her permission.

USVIPD Public Information Officer, Glen Dratte has confirmed to the Consortium on Friday, October 4, 2019.
