FREDERIKSTED — Police said on Sunday afternoon that they are still actively searching for wanted fugitive Samuel “Ghost” Roberts on St. Croix.

The Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) said that Roberts “is a person of interest in a homicide,” according to VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte.

The VIPD said that Roberts stands about 5-feet 6-inches to 5-feet 9-inches tall, weighs about 150 pounds, has black hair, brown eyes and a low haircut.

He is known to frequent Lorraine Village, Mutual Homes and Estate Tortola in Estate Grove Place, Frederiksted, Dratte said.

Police warned the public that Roberts is considered to be armed and dangerous and should be approached with extreme caution.

If you see Roberts on St. Croix, police ask that you call the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) at (340) 778-2211 or the anonymous tip line Crime Stoppers USVI at 1-800-222-8477 or 911.

Crime Stoppers USVI will pay up to $2,500 cash as a reward for information that leads to the arrest of Roberts.

Police said that anyone harboring a wanted fugitive from justice such as Roberts is subject to arrest as an accomplice to murder.

Police admit that they have been searching for Roberts since Feb. 4, 2017 but have been unable to locate him on St. Croix.
