CHRISTIANSTED – A 30-year-old Estate Work and Rest man turned himself in to police yesterday after learning that an arrest warrant had been issued for him, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department.

Adam Mason surrendered to police at 3:30 a.m. Wednesday after a search and arrest warrant was issued by the Virgin Islands Superior Court, police said. The Criminal Investigation Bureau served the warrant on Mason at the Wilbur Francis Command in Estate Hannah’s Rest.

Mason was arrested on the charges of grand Larceny, interfering with an officer discharging his duty, and interfering with property in custody of an officer in connection with allegedly tampering with evidence in the homicide crime scene of Roy Henry at the Lyme Nightclub located in Estate La Grande Princesse that occurred on Sunday June 21, according to the VIPD.

Bail for Mason was set at $35,000.00. Unable to post bail, he was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending an Advice of Rights hearing.

The VIPD said in a statement that anyone who tampers with evidence at a crime scene is subject to arrest.
