FBI Offers $25,000 Reward For Information Leading To The Arrest Of Third Suspect Wanted In East End Carjacking Rape On St. Croix
WANTED FUGITIVE: Hubert Lee easily outsmarted the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) by simply flying off island before local police got around to arresting the first four people wanted in connection with the widely publicized carjacking rape incident that took place on St. Croix’s East End on May 6. The VIPD took nearly three weeks before making the first arrests in the shocking incident. Lee was last seen in North Carolina, according to federal law enforcement authorities.
CHRISTIANSTED — The Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) said early this morning that a third man is now wanted in connection with the carjacking rape that took place on the eve of the St. Croix Half Ironman competition.
The VIPD said that Hubert Lee, who was last seen in North Carolina, is the third man wanted in connection with the brutal rape of a visitor to St. Croix on May 6.
Police said that Lee is a black man aged 23 to 25, who stands about 5-feet, 6-inches tall, weighs about 160 to 165 pounds, has a “low haircut/low Afro” and a “dark complexion.”
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is offering a $25,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of Lee, who is considered a wanted fugitive on the run from charges related to the carjacking rape in early May on the East End of St. Croix.
Police Commissioner Delroy Richards Sr. said that Lee is believed to be a person who used to live full-time on St. Croix, but who left the island prior to the first wave of VIPD arrests that occurred in the case nearly three weeks after the carjacking rape incident took place.
