Chili's offered 10 percent of all sales Monday to benefit the Killeen Crime Stoppers group, which operates Bell County's program. Crime Stoppers pays tipsters rewards for leads in investigations.
A Crime Stoppers tipster led Killeen police to make arrests in the murder of Anthony Thompson, 34, in the 4300 block of Secretariat Drive on Oct. 31, said Carroll Smith, Killeen police spokeswoman. An anonymous tipster called Crime Stoppers, which led Killeen police to charge Daren Terrence Walker and Christopher Bryan Gray in the murder.
The tipster received an undisclosed award, as part of more than $11,500 awarded to local tipsters last year, Smith said. Source: Killeen Daily Herald
The motivation of a Crimestoppers reward will often times induce people to come forward with information that helps local police agencies. Killeen Crimestoppers serves city's in the Bell County area.
