We are starting off CRIMESTOPPERS 2005 with a bang. Last week we asked you to ID this suspected check forger. You didn't, he did. His name is Vernis Farmer. When he saw himself on CRIMESTOPPERS, he let police know. He'll now face forgery charges.
We also picked up a two WARRANT WATCH arrests. William Gibson was the last warrant watchee of 2004 and the first arrest of 2005. He's not alone Otis Hill joins him as arrest number two of the new year.
Police say they are using someone else's plastic to buy their own stuff. The video was released to CRIMESTOPPERS through JPD. This man, and this woman, are suspected of using a stolen credit card at Wal-Mart to the tune of over $700. If you think you know either of these people, call CRIMESTOPPERS, 935-STOP or toll free, 888-566-STOP. When you give your tip, you'll get a tip number. Don't lose that number! keep watching CRIMESTOPPERS to see if an arrest was made, if it was, call Sgt. Steve McDaniel at JPD to see if it was your tip that led to the arrest. If it was, it's worth cash.
