Man sought in Caribbean robbery of US justice

Police in the Caribbean nation of St. Kitts and Nevis have identified a man suspected of involvement in the robbery of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer.

A police spokesman describes the man as a "person of interest" in the Feb. 9 robbery, but declines to provide details of the man's alleged involvement.

Sgt. Alonzo Carty identifies the man as Vedel K. Browne and says he's a gardener in the town of Gingerland on Nevis island. The spokesman warns that anyone found aiding the man will be prosecuted.

The 73-year-old Supreme Court justice, his wife and several guests were confronted by a machete-wielding robber inside their Nevis vacation home. Officials have said no one was hurt but the robber took about $1,000.
