Sex Offender Daniel Cove Arrested by Authorities On St. Croix

Crime / News / Virgin Islands / October 12, 2019

ST. CROIX – Attorney General Denise George on Friday announced the arrest of 36-six-year-old Daniel Cove, a registered sex offender who was arrested Thursday by Superior Court Marshals at the Village Rehabilitation Center in Sion Hill on St. Croix.

He was charged with failing to comply with registration requirements.

Cove was convicted in 2002 of indecent assault and battery on a child under age 14 in Massachusetts and sentenced to prison. After his release in 2013, he moved to the Virgin Islands and registered as a Tier2 sex offender, meaning he had to register every six months for 25 years.  

Cove was arrested again in 2016 on St. Croix for failing to update his sex offender registration.  His last known verification date that listed his address as 11 Estate Diamond, St. Thomas was in August 2018. 

Cove’s exact location was unknown as investigators from the V.I. Department of Justice were actively searching for him.

Superior Court marshals were notified of Cove’s location and apprehended him.

A team of special agents from the VIDOJ with the assistance of other local and federal agencies, routinely conduct unannounced inspections of registered sexual offenders for the purpose of verifying their locations and other personal information, such as their work and home addresses, the department said.

The Attorney General/VIDOJ is mandated to administer and enforce the sex offender registration laws of the territory.
