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.
