ROCK CITY SHAKEDOWN: Dante Tonge Arrested In Robbery Of $2,005.00: VIPD
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A St. Thomas man was arrested on Tuesday after he “shook down” a man and removed at least $2,000 from him last month.
Dante Tonge, 28, of Charlotte Amalie was arrested and charged with aiding and abetting–grand larceny, conspiracy to commit robbery and third-degree robbery, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.
“On Saturday, March 30, 2019, at approximately 5:10 p.m., it was reported that Dante Tonge grabbed the victim while another unknown male individual without authorization, searched the victim’s pockets and removed cash in the amount of two thousand and five Dollars ($2,005.00) U.S currency,” VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte said.
Tonge’s bail was set at $50,000.00 by the order of the V.I. Superior Court.
He was processed and turned over to the Bureau of Corrections pending an advice-of-rights hearing.
