              ARRESTED: Moses Laronde

CHARLOTTE AMALIE – A 21-year-old St. Thomas home invader who broke a window in broad daylight to gain entry to a house in Estate Bovoni was nabbed by a timely police response as he exited the residence.

Police said that Moses Laronde of Estate Thomas was arrested and charged with second-degree burglary, possession of stolen property, and destruction of property.

Bail for Laronde was set at $71,000.00 as per chart. Unable to post bail, he was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending an Advice of Rights hearing.

The 911 Emergency Call Center dispatched police to Bovoni about 12:29 p.m. Wednesday with a report of a burglary.

The homeowner told police that she was in her home resting when she heard a sudden noise of glass breaking coming from her bathroom window.

When the woman heard the footsteps of someone walking on the recently-broken glass she immediately called 911 to report the incident.

A preliminary investigation revealed that Laronde entered the eastern window of the residence and placed several items in a bag while inside.

Shortly after, as Laronde exited the residence through the window he had broken, police arriving on the scene quickly were able to capture the suspect.
