Six anonymous tipsters played a vital role in helping Pueblo police catch some crooks.
Police were able to close 11 cases after receiving the anonymous tips. Tips from the callers led to the arrest of four felonious fugitives and 2 unregistered sex offenders this month alone. This netted the tipsters a combined total of $870.
Callers helped police make arrests for cases including fraud by check, assault, burglary, theft, and failure to register as a sex offender.
Two tipsters gave police information about sex offenders that weren’t living where they were registered. This led to an investigation and to felony arrests.
Your information could earn you a cash reward if it leads to a felony arrest.
