Helping to halt crime

NATIONAL Crime Stoppers Day will be celebrated in Ipswich tomorrow with a crime prevention and information stall at Riverlink from 9am-5pm.

Last year residents in the Ipswich area assisted with information that led to the arrest of 60 offenders on charges relating to drugs, weapons-act offences and armed robbery.

Crime Stoppers Queensland chief executive officer Trevor O’Hara said: “Of note were two major matters cleared up during the year, with the first in January resulting in $10,000 worth of drugs being seized.”

The second was in March with three offenders charged with multiple armed robbery and unlawful use of motor vehicle offences.
