Crime Stoppers is said to be the second best tool the police have for catching criminals – the first is the user of finger prints.

Crime Stoppers is always looking for help.

It takes time to solve a crime – which is not always something the police have.

Crime stoppers brings old crimes to the public’s attention – more often than most people realize, someone reads the document and remembers something – they call Crime Stoppers and the crime get solved.

Each month the Halton unit of Crime Stoppers reminds the public of a crime that has yet to be solved. Here is the most recent crime they are bringing to the attention of the people of Burlington:
