Freine added that Crime Stoppers of Dallas County, which began late last year, encourages citizens to provide any information they may have about a particular crime in return for a cash reward.

Earlier this month, Freine announced the first confirmed arrest as the direct result of a tip to Crime Stoppers of Dallas County. Robin Dewayne Helms, who was wanted on several theft-related charges and for failure to appear, was arrested after a tip led law enforcement personnel to the house where he was hiding.

Anyone with information about a Crime of the Week is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-44-CRIME.

Callers will be given a code name. They do not have to identify themselves or testify. If the information provided leads to an arrest or the recovery of stolen property, callers will receive a cash reward of from $25 to $1,000.

Rewards are usually made within a matter of days. A conviction is not necessary to collect a reward, only an arrest or the recovery of stolen property.
