St. Croix’s Joseph Hanley Wanted For 1999 Rape, Incest Captured in Maryland

CAPTURED IN MARYLAND THANKS TO THE NCIC: JOSEPH HANLEY, 60, OF ST. CROIX

ROCKVILLE — A St. Croix man wanted for a 1999 rape in Christiansted was arrested in Maryland on Friday thanks to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC).

Joseph Hanley, 60, was arrested based on a Superior Court bench warrant issued in 2004 charging him with incest, first-degree aggravated rape and first-degree rape, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

Hanley was being held at the Montgomery County Detention Center in Maryland where he was met by VIPD detectives from the Criminal Investigation Bureau and transported to St. Croix.

Unable to post bail of $250,000, Hanley was remanded to the custody of the Golden Grove Detention Facility pending an advice-of-rights hearing.

The National Crime Information Center, or NCIC, has been called the lifeline of law enforcement—an electronic clearinghouse of crime data that can be tapped into by virtually every criminal justice agency nationwide, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
