Crimestoppers thanks community for successful 2013

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Crimstoppers received 1492 calls with information on variety of crimes and suspects in 2013.

Eighty-three arrests were made solving 85 cases as a result of the community's calls, including two homicides, one aggravated assault, four robberies and 14 significant drug activities.

The Crimestoppers Board of Directors approved $25,300 in reward monies for tips that led to arrests, and only 24 percent of the money approved was picked up by tipsters.

Crimestoppers could not be successful without the support and partnership with the community, law enforcement, the business community and the media.
