   ARRESTED: Zebedee Schulterbrandt

CHARLOTTE AMALIE – A report of gunshots fired early this morning led police to an address on Vester Gade in Savan where a 36-year-old man was acting suspiciously.

The 911 Emergency Call Center sent police there at 5:07 a.m. where a man at the address given was opening up the door and peeking outside of his residence.

The man, later identified as Zebedee Schulterbrandt, was searched by police and they found an ammunition magazine in one of his pockets, according to police.

The officers then asked Schulterbrandt if he would consent to a search of his residence and he agreed, police said.

The search of the Vester Gade residence yielded three firearms with obliterated serial numbers, two bullet-proof vests and a large cache of ammunition, according to police.

Schulterbrandt was arrested and charged with Possession of Unlicensed Firearms with bail set at $25,000.00.

Unable to post bail, he was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending an Advice of Rights hearing.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.
