Crime Line pays out $15,000 in rewards in four months of 2018

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

If you follow the Lubbock Police Department on Facebook, you've probably seen surveillance videos posted looking for possible suspects. At the end of each of these videos is a graphic asking anyone with information to call Crime Line at 741-1000.

Crime Line has had a busy 2018, paying out $15,000 in total rewards. KCBD spoke with Crime Line President Jim Sexton.

"The situation that occurred at the start of 2018, if you'll recall, there were I think three murders real quick. Starting in February and April just ended, we paid out three $5,000 rewards leading to the arrest of these people for those murders."

Since Crime Line is completely anonymous, LPD doesn't specify which homicide cases Crime Line has helped identify suspects in.

The $15,000 that Crime Line has paid so far in 2018 is notable because the annual budget of the program is roughly $20,000-30,000. 

 Sexton says donations can be mailed to Crime Line at the Lubbock Police Department.
