TACOMA, Wash. - In Pierce County, tipping police to the whereabouts of felons can be profitable.
Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is again offering an extra incentive for tips that help get the county's most-wanted criminals behind bars. The special cash-and-gift-card campaign began today with rewards of as much as $500.
Law-enforcement agencies in Pierce County compiled a list of their 50 most-wanted offenders, and have posted information about them on the Stoppers Web site at www.santarewards.com The list includes violent gang members, convicted sex offenders and domestic violence violators.
A similar gas-card giveaway for tips earlier this year got nearly two dozen wanted felons off the streets.
