Jonesboro (KAIT)-- Two huge arrests for Crimestoppers this week. Just more proof that Crimestoppers works. Let's go back to last month. I showed you this video of an armed robbery at the Sonic on Stadium. Thanks to a Crimestoppers tip, JPD has their suspect. They say Jayce Addison is the man holding the gun and forcing the manager to empty the register. Right now Addison is in jail in Crittenden County as a suspect in two other armed robberies. Thanks to the tip he's now a suspect in a third.
Last month, Crimestoppers put up $500 for information leading to the arrest of Marcus Antonio Smith. Smith was wanted for the December murder of 19-year-old Charles Whitney. It was a Crimestoppers tip that gave U-S Marshalls the fresh trail they needed to capture this suspected killer in Memphis. So we say "thank you" to our anonymous tipster.
On to Warrant Watch. Say an early happy birthday to Christopher J. Wagner. Later this month, he'll turn 31. Let's see if he can blow out his 9 warrants by then. All of them are non-payment of fines warrants.
Mark Ryan doubles up our total for the week with nine warrants of his own. He has six non-payment of fines, two public service, and one contempt of court warrant out of JPD.
Telling police where to find Mark Ryan or Christopher J. Wagner is worth cash. Call Crimestoppers to get your anonymous tip number, 935-STOP. Then, keep watching each week for your suspect to get the stamp. When you see it, call or email Sgt. Steve McDaniel and tell him your tip number. He'll tell you if your tip is worth cash. And remember, when you see crime, call Crimestoppers, 935-STOP.
Recently, Chief Meteorologist Ryan Vaughan asked his Facebook audience to text their mom and ask how long it would to take to cook a 25 lb. turkey in a microwave.
