Criminal Investigation Bureau detectives on St. Croix arrested 23-year-old Jaheem Benjamin based on an arrest warrant charging him with Grand Larceny. Police said that on December 29, 2010 Benjamin stole the service revolver belonging to his sister, who is a law enforcement officer.

Benjamin, who is a resident of Estate Upper Love, was arrested at about 9 a.m. on Wednesday, February 2 based on a Superior Court arrest warrant dated January 28. He was held on a $75,000 bail and remanded to the custody of the Golden Grove Adult Correctional Facility pending further court action.
