CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A St. Thomas resident living in Sapphire Village that has been the site of three murders in two years was arrested on charges that he intended to sell marijuana.

Lucias McColgan, 37 of Royal Oak, Michigan was arrested and charged about 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday with possession with intent to distribute after authorities discovered that he had a substantial amount of a green leafy substance that later tested positive as being marijuana, the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) said.

Authorities discovered the marijuana in several zip lock baggies, according to the VIPD.

A police source, speaking to the Virgin Islands Free Press on condition of anonymity, said that Mr. McColgan’s plainly visible injuries to his face were incurred prior to his arrest by the VIPD.

Bail for McColgan was set at $10,000.00 as per chart.

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

MURDER AND DRUGS CENTRAL: Sapphire Village has been the host to at least three murders and one drug bust in the last two years, according to police records obtained by the V.I. Freep.
