Through Cabarrus Area Crime Stoppers, Kannapolis Police received 25 calls involving tips about five different incidents in April.
Most of the calls were from the same person giving only sketchy information for each call, according to Officer Bryan Ritchie, the Kannapolis representative to Crime Stoppers.
At the group’s May 9 meeting, Ritchie suggested using the Kannapolis Citizen newspaper to publish Kannapolis’ Most Wanted list again.
This would help get the Crime Stoppers name out in the community, Ritchie said, and he agreed to get a legal opinion regarding any liability Crime Stoppers might have for such a list.
(The Citizen has published the list of most wanted.)
Keith Cauthen, the Concord Police Department’s representative to Crime Stoppers, said he received 17 calls and paid a $200 reward. Some of the calls involved local high school students using alcohol and marijuana possession.
Crime Stoppers met in the Conference Room of the Old Concord Courthouse, with Vice Chairman Dale Bullock presiding.
Present were Janet Dearmon, Tim Rowe, Bernie Misenheimer, Linda Spencer, Laura Price, Andy Shuford, Chris Shoemaker, Randy Harrington, Ronn Moore, Bob Davis, Bullock, Ritchie and Cauthen.
Treasurer Tim Rowe updated members on two accounts at Wachovia. The rewards account has a $6,387.49 balance, and the operating account has $5,656.08.
Crime Stoppers has an additional $6,750 from its barbecue fundraiser, and the group determined these dollars should go into the operating account.
Ritchie also reported two tips (one carried over from February) and one arrest in March.
Shoemaker reported that Crime Stoppers is on schedule to sponsor a golf tournament Aug. 17, though the organization has only one sponsor so far.
A hole sponsorship costs $10, a title sponsor costs $1,000, a team fee is $300 and a beverage cart sponsor pays $250.
Suggestions for interesting twists for the tournament: a putting contest, a marshmallow driving contest and a longest drive prize.
