Crimestoppers Program Re-Energized

Cookeville police say they hope to put more emphasis in the coming weeks on the local Crimestoppers program, which offers cash rewards to local citizens who call in tips.  The Crimestoppers "Crime of the Week" this week focuses on a series of burglaries at several Cookeville apartments which occurred during the weekend of January 8th. Lt. Carl Sells reports that the homes were broken into by thieves who forced in the front doors. They made off with jewelry, an 18-inch diameter wall clock ... and a set of deer antlers. He says Crimestoppers will pay a reward of up to a thousand dollars for information on this or any other crime. You can call 520-STOP or 267-TIPS to leave that info.
