CHARLOTTE AMALIE, St Thomas, USVI— Police on St Thomas, US Virgin Islands (USVI) on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 arrested a female Home Depot employee after the manager of the department this employee worked in allegedly caught her allowing someone she knows to leave the store with items without paying for them, [US] Virgin Islands Police Department [VIPD] Public Information Officer Glen Dratte announced Friday, June 16, 2017.

Mr Dratte said the VIPD’s Criminal Investigation Unit was dispatched on Wednesday to Home Depot in St Thomas, and met with the store’s lost prevention manager in reference to an embezzlement incident.

The lost prevention manager told police that the employee, 26-year-old Tasanique Murrel, had voided several items on more than one occasion for a particular customer, and allowed this customer to leave the store with the unpaid items.

Ms Murrel was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending her advise-of-rights hearing, after failing to make bail of $75,000.

The VIPD is asking anyone with knowledge of similar crimes to contact the force at (340)774-2211, or the Criminal Investigation Bureau (340)714-9800. You may also contact Crime Stoppers USVI.
