CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Police say a St. Thomas man is accused of driving off with a truck parked near Sub Base last week.

Burton “Lamb” Fahie, 46, of Bordeaux allegedly stole a vehicle registered to B.G. Transportation of Estate Contant on July 3, the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) said.

Police said an employee of B.G. Transportation on July 5 supplied them with video surveillance  footage that allegedly shows Fahie in the act of stealing the truck, according to the VIPD.

The video shows a black man walk on to the property in Estate Contant about 6:27 a.m. on July 3 and drive off with a truck that was parked there.

Fahie was identified by police investigators — based on similar cases — about 4:30 p.m. on July 10. He has been charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle, police said.

His bail was set at 10,000.00 and unable to post bail he was remanded to the custody of the Bureau of Corrections pending an advice of rights hearing.

On June 11, 2015 Fahie was also arrested and charged on St. Thomas with unauthorized use of a vehicle after surveillance video allegedly showed him removing a vehicle without the permission of its owner, police records indicate.

On social media, Fahie did a Facebook check-in at Estate Smith Bay on St. Thomas’ East End.
