It took only a few hours to catch the 38 yr old woman red handed once police informed Safeway of information received from a Crime Stopper’s tip.
“ The police are only as good as the information we receive from the community. In this case, this is a good example of how the community has had enough of their local stores being robbed blind, “ says Cst. Angela Rabut, media relation officer Terrace Detachment.
The woman was arrested on February 6, 2012. Charges of theft and breach of probation are being forwarded to Crown Counsel for approval.
Crime Stoppers is run by a group of volunteers in the community. It is funded by public donations and various fund raising events, like the annual Jail n’ Bail. It acts as a medium for the public to get information to the police. Calls are sent thru to a call center, and then the information is relayed back to the police. Your name will remain anonymous. Crime Stopper’s common saying is, “We just want your information, not your name!”
Information that leads to an arrest is eligible for up to a $2000 reward.People with information on crime are asked to contact the Terrace RCMP at (250)638-7400 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers by telephone at 1-800-222-TIPS. Or a Tip can be left anonymously online at www.bccrimestoppers.com
