St. Croix Man Arrested on Firearm and Drug Charges

St. Croix, USVI – Rahem “Kimby” Hendrickson, of St. Croix, appeared before Magistrate Judge George W. Cannon for an Initial Appearance on April 17, 2019, after his arrest by Homeland Security Investigations Special Agents on the charges of Possession of a Firearm within a School Zone, Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute, and Possession of a Firearm in Furtherance of Drug Trafficking.

According to court documents, on February 16, 2018, a search warrant was obtained for Hendrickson’s vehicle that was located at the Dynasty Grocery Store, aka Paul’s, in Sion Farm.  The search subsequently revealed a loaded Glock .40 caliber pistol with various additional ammunition, over a kilogram of marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and $2,584 in cash.

The case was investigated by the Virgin Islands Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations, and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel H. Huston.

United States Attorney Gretchen C.F. Shappert reminds the public that an arrest warrant is merely a formal charging document and is not evidence of guilt.  Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
