Crime Stoppers features unsolved crimes when a detective has exhausted his leads in a case and feels that information from an anonymous source would reinvigorate his investigation.

Fugitives are wanted criminal suspects who are avoiding capture, and that makes them inherently dangerous.  Call Crime Stoppers immediately if you know of their whereabouts, but take no action to contact the suspects yourself.  You can also submit a WebTip online with the link above.

Vacant Home Thefts Prompt Realtor Aid - $1,500 Reward Being Offered (2011/04/25)

A $1,500.00 reward is being offered for tips that solve a burglary ring that preys on vacant homes.

Crime Stoppers already had offered a reward for tips that help solve 23 burglaries in Spokane Valley in which kitchen appliances were stolen from vacant homes.

Now the Spokane Association of Realtors has pitched in to increase the amount of cash available for tipsters.

Police say the thief first steals the real estate lockbox from the front door of the vacant home that contains the key, then returns with a truck to steal the range and refrigerator.

"The boxes are designed to be difficult to break open, so the thief does that elsewhere," according to a February Crime Stoppers news release.

Anyone with information on the burglaries is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or 509-327-5111 or submit tips online at www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org.

You can remain anonymous and still collect the reward!
