The car was found burned Friday night around 10 p.m. A picture of the vehicle can be seen on our website. The minimum reward for the arrest of the killer(s) is $1,500.
St. John: On Wednesday April 20 at about 12:30 a.m., a manager’s white Apple MacBook with a Hitachi hard drive were stolen from a table at Jake’s restaurant in Cruz Bay. The total value of the equipment is $2,100. The minimum reward for the arrest of a thief is $714 plus 10% of the value of any property recovered. There is a good chance that the person who stole this laptop will try to sell it. If someone offers to sell you an item at a bargain price, please assume it is stolen property and report the attempted sale to law enforcement, or if you want to remain anonymous, report your information to Crime Stoppers. Remember that receiving stolen property is also illegal.
