Van Zandt County Crime Stoppers has designated another $1,250 in rewards for the latest anonymous tips that led to the arrests of three individuals on various charges in the county.
One of the tips, which alerted deputies to the sales of methamphetamine, led to the arrest of a Canton woman on charges of selling and distributing drugs. Crime Stoppers set aside $450 for that anonymous caller.
Two other tips led to the arrests of a Wills Point man whom deputies had sought on a felony theft warrant and Joseph David Rose of Mineola who was wanted on a robbery warrant. Those two tips yielded the anonymous callers $400 each.
“Crime Stoppers continues to generate good tips that are helping deputies and police throughout the county catch criminals,” said Andy Flowers, president of Van Zandt County Crime Stoppers. “We are more than happy to keep paying out generous rewards to keep those calls coming in to 903-567-STOP. Everybody wins when callers can get no-questions-asked cash rewards for helping put criminals away.”
Calls to the Crime Stoppers tip line, 903-567-7867, are always kept completely anonymous. Callers are given a code for their tip, and when the arrest is made, they can collect the reward for their tip.
“With the holidays coming, it’s a good way for people to pick up some extra money for gifts,” Flowers said. “We say, turn in a criminal and have a merrier Christmas.”
