From now until Thanksgiving, Crime Stoppers is giving its usual cash reward along with a grocery store gift card for tips that help arrest the eight accused or convicted burglars pictured below.
Sgt. Dave Reagan described the eight as a "a bevy of baddies who like to break into Spokane-area homes."
Burglaries usually increase around the holidays, and Crime Stoppers " wants to make the Thanksgiving holiday memorable for the burglars and not just their victims," Reagan said in a news release. The gift cards can be used for Thanksgiving turkeys, hence the name of the promotion.
"Rat on a rat this November, and stuff two turkeys for the price of one," Reagan wrote.
Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or go online at www.crimestoppersinlandnorthwest.org.
URM Cash and Carry donated grocery cards for the promotion; Lamar Advertising is featuring the fugitives on electronic billboards.
