VI Police Dept. - Friday, January 13th, 2012 at 11:30 PM

Police on St. Croix arrested 20-yer-old Ernesto Guadalupe and charged him with First Degree Robbery after he was positively identified as the person who pointed a wooden handgun at a victim and robbed him of a cellular phone.

The incident happened at about 10:45 a.m. Friday, January 13 in Estate Profit. Police said Guadalupe approached an 18-year-old male and pointed what appeared to be a wooden hand gun at him. Guadalupe told the victim, “give me something” and the victim told him he had nothing to give. Guadalupe then took the victims’ cell phone and walked away.

Criminal Investigation Bureau detectives arrested the suspect at about 15 minutes later.  He was held on a $75,000 bail and remanded to the Golden Grove Adult Correctional Facility pending further court action.

    Wooden, plastic, real or not – when approached with an object that looks like such, the only thing that happens is fear and fear will cuase you to give up everything. Why? Material stuff is not worth more then your life. @baddestVlch – brother or not, because he brandished that weapon, wooden or not, he is still guilty becuase if you look up 18 U.S.C. 2113 (d) it will clearly identify that he is allegedly charged with the right crime. It’s the way a person respond to that wooden gun that allows the courts to function in the way that they are. Who am I? I am studying Law and Psychology and we are actualy working on a case about a wooden gun, thats how i know the answer allegedly.

    There is a whole lot more that is wrong with this story. I personally think that the Police Officer who was investigating this case should be placed on administrative leave without pay, and the same for the Judge who set the bail, because this is a crazy-man that you are dealing with, and crazy people needs help. :-P

    In St. Kitts, years ago one man ran for his life from another man who chased him with a bread in a brown paper bag posing as a gun. Nobody have time to check out or argue with someone who pointed something looking like a gun an them….your first reaction is to either surrender, fight back, or flee in which case somebody can get kill in the process. Life ain’t no joke.

    Guess in a recession, everyone must cut back?!! Let him sit in the jail cell for a while to think about the stupid act he committed and how he is going to make $75k bail.
