FREDERIKSTED — Police reiterated tonight that they are still looking for 19-year-old St. Croix man who is wanted for murder.

On February 4, the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) first put out an all-points bulletin for Samuel “Ghost” Roberts of Frederiksted who they said is “armed and dangerous” and wanted for murder.

Contacted by telephone, Dratte told the V.I. Free Press that he did not have information about which murder Roberts is allegedly linked to.

Roberts is described by police as being a black man who stands about 5-foot, 6-inches tall to 5-foot, 9-inches tall, weighs about, height about 150 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes, with a short “low” haircut.

The Frederiksted man is known to frequent Lorraine Village, Mutual Homes, Estate Tortola, all located in Grove Place, according to police.

Police warned that Roberts should be considered armed and dangerous and that all due caution should be used if you happen to be in his presence.

If you happen to come into contact with Roberts, please call the Criminal Investigation Bureau in confidence at (340) 778-2211, Crimestoppers VI at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or 911.

“We can make our Community Safer, the information you provide may make the difference,” Dratte said.
