Former Missing Teen Now Wanted For Questioning in 2018 Armed Robbery

CHRISTIANSTED — Police said on Monday that they are trying to find a St. Croix man who is wanted for questioning about a 2018 armed robbery of a jewelry store.

Abijah Isaac, 20, is a black male who stands 5-feet, 9-inches tall and weighs about 160 pounds. Isaac has black hair, brown eyes, a brown complexion, has a slim build and wears a short haircut.

“Abijah Isaac  is wanted for questioning for an armed robbery that occurred in December 2018 in Christiansted town,” VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte said. “Isaac is possibly armed and dangerous.”

The Sion Farm man was reported missing by police as a teenager in February 2016. He was 17 then.

The VIPD said his age is 22. Virgin Islands Free Press records indicate that he is 20.

The VIPD spelled his name as “Abijah Issac” at that time.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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.
