JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Crimestoppers of Jonesboro recently paid for a new security system for Abilities Unlimited, but that hasn't stopped thieves yet.

Better lights and new cameras were added to the donation drop-off location in Downtown Jonesboro in hopes to make that site more secure.

Crimestoppers even bought a large sign warning thieves that they will be seen if they steal.

But people keep stealing. The good news for us, though, is that we get a much better look at them now.

In video of a recent theft at Abilities Unlimited you can see the suspect bring in a dolly to haul away a television.

What's important to remember is those donated items, no matter what kind of shape they are in, are valuable to the store.

Those items help provide jobs for people with special needs in Region 8.

More importantly, it's stealing when people take the donated items.

As soon as someone donates an item, it becomes the property of Abilities Unlimited.

If you can identify the thief, it's worth money. Call in that tip to Crimestoppers at 935-STOP or text it to 274637.

In the text message, type 935stop as one word followed by your tip.

You will get a message back with your anonymous tip number. That number is yours to keep for any future reward.

Sometimes the numbers are just plain surreal on warrant watch. This week, we have a person with 56 warrants.

Wilma Milsap has 56 contempt of court warrants that are split between JPD, Craighead County Sheriff's Department and the Bono Police Department.

Tyrelle Metcalf looks pretty good by comparison.  He only has 20 warrants. The biggest chunk falls under contempt of court.

If you can lead police to Tyrelle Metcalf or Wilma Milsap, it's worth money.  Call in that tip to Crimestoppers at 935-STOP or text it to 274637.
