From 2013 to now, they’ve had 200 more tips. The record-breaking tips that led to felony arrests were from the six coastal counties. In all, Coast Crime Stoppers have received just over 600 tips.
Crime Stoppers stresses the importance of reporting any tip, no matter how small it may seem. Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers Coordinator Lori Massey said, “There’s investigators waiting for that one break in a case and, like a missing puzzle piece, it could be something very small. It might not seem a great deal to the tipster but if they do tell investigators something they know about a missing case, a cold case, or any other type of criminal activity, it could be the missing piece to the puzzle that solves that crime.”
