REPORT A CRIME
Since its inception in 1991, the Thurston County Crime Stoppers program has resulted in 905 arrests, $1.8 million in recovered stolen property, and $6.8 million in seized narcotics. More than $160,000 in reward payments have been made to local citizens that have anonymously reported the crimes.
Crime Stoppers pays up to $1,000 for information leading to arrests made in connection with stolen property, wanted persons, illegal drugs and other serious crimes. How does it work? Callers simply leave a crime tip without anyone ever knowing who provided it:
|Simply call 1-800-222-TIPS to anonymously report a crime that has been, or is about to be, committed; Collect calls are accepted. Or, visit www.crimebusters.org and use the anonymous online form.|
||During your call or online session, you will be assigned a secret code
that protects your identity.|
||Wait one week and call 1-800-222-TIPS. Using your secret code,
anonymously check the status of your tip.|
||Once an arrest is made, your reward will be authorized. Go to a
participating bank, provide your secret code, and receive a cash reward,
no questions asked!|
