Group celebrates caller tip-offs

A SHADY person loitering or drugs hidden in a mate’s stereo speaker could become vital information to police.

All it takes is two minutes a phone call and these tid bits of information could help put a criminal behind bars.

Crime Stoppers Queensland Warwick branch hosted an information night for the volunteer group’s big wigs and CEO Trevor O’Hara said drug offences were the most common crime called in.

“This year is our 20th year and during that time information given to Crime Stoppers from the public has contributed to 19,087 arrests, 19 murders solved, $9.3 million worth of property and seized more than $2.7 proceeds of crime,” Mr O’Hara said.

“Crime Stoppers is a registered charity and community volunteer group – a community-based proactive group who give information to police. If you call or email Crime Stoppers we can’t trace you but you’re given an identification number so if your information leads to an arrest you can claim a $50 to $1000 reward depending on the information given.”
