This week the Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program is asking for your help to keep the numbers going.
With the third quarter of 2013 behind us, we wanted to update our citizens on our progress to date.
As of September 2013, Crime Solvers had assigned 519 code numbers to anonymous tipsters. During the same period, 126 crimes were solved as a result of information collected from the program. Sixty-eight suspects have been arrested, more than $71,000 in stolen property has been recovered and $3,300 in illegal drugs seized. And, for those who question whether Crime Solvers really pays rewards, more than $11,000 in rewards have been approved in these three quarters of 2013.
Thank you to those who have supported the Crime Solvers program through tips and donations. Let’s finish strong this year.
