DNA Match Leads To Glenn David’s Arrest On Gun Charges In St. Croix

FREDERIKSTED — On June 14, 2018, at approximately 11: 25 a.m, detectives from the Criminal Investigation Bureau made a traffic stop on a vehicle operated by Glenn A. David at the intersection of River Road and Upper Love Road.

Because of the stop an unregistered firearm, ammunition and other illegal items were discovered in the vehicle, the Virgin Islands Police Department said. All items were seized; however, Glenn A. David was released pending further investigation.

The investigation revealed that David, 22, is not authorized to possess or carry a firearm or ammunition in the territory of the U.S. Virgin Islands. DNA was obtained from the firearm and other evidence and sent for examination at a DNA Lab.

The examination revealed that David’s DNA profile was on the firearm that was discovered in the vehicle he was operating, according to the VIPD.

On February 26, 2019, an arrest warrant was obtained for the arrest of Glenn A. David for unauthorized possession of a firearm and other firearms related charges.

On Friday, David appeared with his attorney at the Wilbur Francis Command Police station and surrendered himself to authorities.

Bail for David was set at $50,000. Unable to post bail he was remanded to Golden Grove Detention Facility pending further court action.
