St. Thomas Man Wanted For Armed Robbery Outside Sports Bar Charged: VIPD

CHARGED: Dante Tonge, 24, of Contant Knolls, St. Thomas.

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A St. Thomas man wanted for an armed robbery that took place outside a Crown Mountain sports bar earlier this month has been arrested by police, authorities said.

Dante Tonge, 24, of Contant Knolls was arrested about 2:50 a.m. Thursday based on a warrant issued by the Superior Court that charged him with first-degree robbery, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

Tonge was identified as one of two men who robbed a victim at gunpoint outside La Delicia Sports Bar on Crown Mountain Road in Contant on March 6, VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said.

Bail for Tonge was set at $100,000. Unable to post bail, he was remanded to the custody of the Virgin Islands Bureau of Corrections pending an advice-of-rights hearing.

This incident is currently under active investigation.

According to police records, Tonge was charged with aiding and abetting grand larceny and related charges in April 2019.
