CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A fight between two men led to the discovery of an illegal gun earlier this month, a police source said.

Six days ago, at about 7:58 a.m. on April 5, patrol officers along with officers of the Special Operation Bureau and the Investigation Bureau were dispatched to Lindbergh Bay after a fight was reported between two men.

When police arrived on the scene, they said they found a gun and arrested Lester Charles.

Charles, 30, is charged with unauthorized possession of a firearm, third-degree assault, possession of an unlicensed firearm and destruction of property.

Unable to post bail in an amount the police did not divulge, Charles was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
