A stolen car was recovered this past week thanks to a call to CrimeStoppers.

Last month a man who had stolen the identity of a woman in Elmore County and who had eluded authorities for three years, was found thanks to a call to CrimeStoppers.  He was found cooking METH at a home in East Montgomery.

Since CrimeStoppers was started in our region 12 years ago, 750 people have been arrested and 1,500 cases solved.  Many who were arrested were wanted for multiple crimes.

Residents of Montgomery, Elmore, Autauga and Macon Counties are safer because of fellow citizens who call and offer tips on the CrimeStoppers tip lines.  These tips lead to arrests and if they do, earn reward money for tipsters.  Calls are completely anonomous.   

If you see a crime or can help in solving a crime, call CrimeStoppers at 215-STOP.  There is also an Hispanic tipline: 1-888-525-STOP. 

Cheers to all of you who have called and helped keep our neighborhoods safe.  We encourage everyone to keep taking back our neighborhoods by using this great resource.
