DENVER — Metro Denver Crime Stoppers says it received 300 tips over the one-month period from mid-May to mid-June.

The Crime Stoppers board has agreed to pay out $4,000 in tip money.

Crime Stoppers offers up to $2,000 for tips, but not all tips that help police are paid at that amount. Anyone who provides a tip to Crime Stoppers can stay anonymous and still collect reward money.

Board member Sarah Johnston told Denver7 that 14 suspects were arrested thanks to tips from the public.

Those suspects are accused of 47 crimes, she said.

“Several wanted and dangerous individuals were arrested because of calls to the tip line,” Johnston said.
