CHRISTMAS EVE A SEMI-SILENT NIGHT ON ST. JOHN

0

St. John police enjoyed a mostly silent night for Christmas Eve, although they had to remind some citizens forcibly about peace on Earth and goodwill toward all.
Four men were arrested in Cruz Bay from Christmas Eve into the early hours of Christmas Day, among them Daryl Ward, alleged to have given a reverse impersonation of Santa Claus. Shortly after 2:30 a.m. Saturday, Zone D Police Command in Cruz Bay got the first of four burglary calls from the Contant-Enighed area. Police arrested Ward at 6:30 a.m. after he was identified by two of the four callers as the man they had seen breaking into their homes.
The others arrested, "Bushio" Bell, Kenneth Smalls and Felix Olivieri, were apprehended in the daylight hours of Friday, Dec. 24, and charged with decking not the halls but their fellow men. Bell was charged with assault, resisting arrest, and possession of a controlled substance with attempt to distribute. Smalls was charged with third-degree assault after a St. Thomas man told authorities Smalls assaulted him with a gun. Oliveri was charged with simple assault. Smalls and Oliveri were released on bail.
