Williams Delight Man Arrested In Connection With Drake’s Passage Gold Heist
ARRESTED: Shaquielle Correa
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A St. Croix man has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery that took place near the St. Thomas waterfront area three years ago, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD).
On Monday, September 16, 2013, at approximately 9:50 a.m., several black men entered the Gems and Gold Corner in Drake’s Passage in downtown Charlotte Amalie and robbed the store at gunpoint.
The men removed numerous gold items from the showcase and then exited the business, police said.
“The Criminal Investigation Bureau will continue to follow-up on all leads and make more arrests in pending cases,” VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte said.
On Thursday, September 22, 2016, 21-year-old Shaquielle Correa of Williams Delight was arrested pursuant to an arrest warrant issued by the Superior Court of the Unites States Virgin Islands, for Robbery 2nd, Assault 1st, Assault 3rd, Grand Larceny; Possession of Stolen Property and Aiding and Abetting. Correa was remanded to Bureau of Corrections pending an Advice of Rights hearing.
In August 2014, Correa was arrested on Main Street in Williams Delight in a white Toyota Corolla with Shaquan Prentice of Lorraine Village when police found a loaded AK-47 in the vehicle.
