Carlton Man Arrested On Illegal Gun Charge After Traffic Stop In Golden Rock

CHRISTIANSTED — A St. Croix man who was driving without a license plate on his vehicle was arrested on an illegal gun charge after a traffic stop on Friday afternoon, authorities said.

Jaime “DaFoxx” St. Omer, 33, of Estate Carlton, was arrested at 4:24 p.m. Friday and charged with carrying a firearm openly or concealed, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

Special Operations Bureau officers were on patrol in the vicinity of the Golden Rock Shopping Center when they conducted a traffic stop on a gray Infiniti, operated by St. Omer, that did not have a rear license plate, according to the VIPD.

“During the course of the traffic stop, officers discovered a firearm in the vehicle. St. Omer admitted to officers that he did not have a license to possess the firearm, and was placed under arrest,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said.
