WHEN TO CALL CRIME STOPPERS?
Maybe you overheard someone bragging about having committed a crime. Maybe you know someone who is driving a stolen car…or is hiding from the police…or is a robber or drug dealer. Or maybe you just see something that doesn’t look right. A strange car. A person acting sneaky. Someone carrying a gun or knife, or keeping a weapon in their locker. If you aren’t sure that what you saw or heard is really a crime, call anyway. We’ll pass the tip on to police and they can decide if it’s worth investigating. It may be a piece of a clue to a big crime.
