Former New Hampshire Politician Charged In Frederiksted Waterfront Assault: VIPD

FREDERIKSTED — A former congressional candidate who faked his own disappearance in 2006 is facing new criminal charges after police say he attacked a woman in front of her own children.

Gary Bruce Dodds, 55, of Estate La Vallee, was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault and battery, second-degree robbery, forcible and unlawful entry, and grand larceny, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

“His arrest stemmed from an incident on Strand Street, Frederiksted, that occurred on August 23, where he allegedly assaulted a female and took her cell phone,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said.

Bail for Dodds was set at $25,000. Unable to post bail, he was remanded to the custody of the Virgin Islands Bureau of Corrections (BOC) pending an advice-of-rights hearing.

Dodds is a former congressional candidate from New Hampshire who was convicted of faking his own disappearance in a snowy woods near his home to gain the voter’s sympathy prior to a primary election in 2006.
