Police Looking For White Chevy TrailBlazer Stolen From BIR Parking Lot
STOLEN FROM BIR: 2003 Chevy Trailblazer (LGO-6)
CHRISTIANSTED – Police on St. Croix today announced that a government vehicle parked in the parking lot of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) near Sunny Isle was stolen last week and that the fence around the lot was damaged.
The 911 Emergency Call Center notified police at 8:33 a.m. on December 18 that property damage had been reported at the BIR’s headquarters located at Estate Diamond.
Police on the scene and met with the chief financial officer of the IRB, who said that the facility’s store room manager had informed her that morning that the electric fence on their property had been damaged.
When police inspected the fence they noted that it appeared to have been taken off of its rail track, slightly bent outwards and the chain link appeared to have been cut; with a hole big enough to drive a vehicle through.
Police gathered all pertinent information at the crime scene and left the premises only to be called back there again by the 911 Emergency Call Center at 12:27 p.m. Thursday after BIR officials noticed that a vehicle was missing from the fenced parking lot.
An employee with the Office of the lieutenant governor told the police that on December 17 she parked a white, 2003 Chevy Trailblazer (LGO-6) into the BIR’s parking lot at 2:45 p.m. and when she arrived the next morning, it was gone.
Police are investigating the theft of the vehicle.
If anyone has information about the theft please call 911 or the anonymous tip service, Crime Stoppers USVI at 1-800-222-8477.
