POLL COUNTY, Fla. – The Polk County Sheriff’s Office arrested two murder suspects from the Virgin Islands on Thursday.
Deputies, supported by K-9 and Drone units, responded to a residence at 107 Arizona Avenue in Lakeland and quickly arrested the suspects, 30-year-old Jonathan Rivera, and his girlfriend 28-year-old N’zinger Williams at about 5:16 pm.
Both suspects were taken to the PCSO Sheriff’s Processing Center to be booked in and will await extradition to the Virgin Islands.

“The suspects are wanted for the murder of a 28-year-old St. Croix man in June of this year. They are both from the Virgin Islands and came here in late June apparently thinking Polk County would be a good place to flee to. They were obviously wrong,” said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd.
The Virgin Islands Police Department St. Croix District is charging Jonathan Rivera with 1st Degree Murder, 1st Degree Assault, 3rd Degree Assault, Unauthorized Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Crime of Violence, 1st Reckless Endangerment, and Unauthorized Possession of Ammunition.
N’zinger Williams is facing charges of 1st Degree Murder, and Accessory After-the-Fact.
