ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF),has charged two, additional persons, in connection with a string of burglaries in and around Road Town, in March and April last, perpetrated against ‘I-Smart’ and ‘Infinite Solutions.’

According to a RVIPF press statement dated, June 19 2018, RVIPF Officers of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), have jointly charged 18 year-old, Rashawn Williams, of Horsepath, and a 16-year-male of Pockwood Pond.

The two were charged with illegally entering I-Smart and Infinite Solutions and fleeing these premises with a number of electronic items.

According to RVIPF’s Communications Officer, Ms Diane L. Drayton, in April of this year, RVIPF reported that CID was actively seeking those responsible for a number of commercial burglaries in Road Town and Wickham’s Cay II area.

Police at the time said, “…they believe the same group of offenders may be responsible for break-ins and warned retailers to ensure their premises are properly secured with alarms and CCTV.” 

Electronics

Laptops, video games and other electronic items were taken, as electronic stores, construction offices and worksites where valuable tools and cash are stored, were all targeted by the burglars.

RVIPF Commissioner, Michael Matthews said in the June 15, 2018, statement, the Virgin Islands community continues to benefit from the hard work of the CID burglary team—specifically set up to identify the culprits responsible for the most recent business burglaries.

 “The apprehension of those few, selfish individuals whose intent is to make a dishonest living from hardworking businesses trying to get back on their feet from the storms of last year benefits all of us. I appreciate the long hours already spent by the burglary team,” he said.

    good heavens well i hope Mathews arrests Orlando and the Scotiabank manager if he's serious about cracking
    down on criminals! And whoever the heck organized (named company) to sell defective iphones at over $1,000 each. I've
    seen Mathews many times at Riteway along with the Governor. They look so happy. Maybe they should see to
    it the victims get their money back before they have those satanic smiles on their faces.
