Crime Stoppers Tip Solves Burglary

July 24, 2011 by Randy Keck

$1000 Reward Paid

An area resident will enjoy a $1,000 award paid by Parker County Crime Stoppers because of a tip that led to the arrest of a suspect in a burglary at the Weatherford Lake Marina in May.

The Weatherford Police Department reported the burglary that occurred on May 18 as the “Crime of the Week” to the local media. As a result, the Crime Stoppers tip-line received several calls identifying the suspect in this case.

On July 13th, Douglas Scott Martin, 41, was arrested for State Jail Felony Theft $1,500 to $20,000 and placed in the Parker County Jail.  

“At the past Crime Stoppers Board meeting it was decided that a $1000 reward would be paid to the tipster,” said Capt. Greg Lance, “We received several calls but the first caller who identified the suspect gets the reward, which is Crime Stoppers policy.”

Parker County Crime Stoppers was established in 1986 and since then it has allowed concerned citizens to assist law enforcement in solving crime.

“The amazing thing about Crime Stoppers is that the callers remain anonymous throughout the entire process,” Lance said. “We never ask for their name or anything else that may identify them, so they have no fear of ever being identified.”

If you have any information on any crime, contact Parker County Crime Stoppers today at 817-599-5555 or 1-800-942-STOP. Up to a $1,000 reward will be paid for information leading to an arrest and you may remain anonymous.
