PROFILE WAS AIRED WEEK OF FEBRUARY 9-15, 2018
Crime Stoppers is committed to assisting the police in the fight against crime and to keep our communities safe. The presence of fentanyl continues to be a concern on the streets of Durham Region. Opioid related incidents saw a 170% increase in 2017. Of the 12 confirmed opioid related deaths, 11 were fentanyl related. In an effort to combat the illegal distribution of fentanyl, Crime Stoppers is again increasing rewards during the months of February, March and April 2018. During this time, Crime Stoppers will pay a $1000 reward to tipsters for information that directly leads to the seizure of illicit fentanyl, or its derivatives, for the purpose of trafficking and/or the arrest of individuals involved in the trafficking of fentanyl. Crime Stoppers is asking members of the community to do their part in keeping Durham Region safe. If you have any information, please call Crime Stoppers. Callers never need to give their name or testify in court and we do NOT use call display. Remember: CRIME doesn’t pay but Crime Stoppers does.
