The Fulton County Crime Stopper program board of trustees announced last week they authorized the payment of a $100 reward.
It was paid to a Swanton man for information he provided that resulted in the indictment of a Tontogany man on a burglary charge.
The man provided a description of a suspicious vehicle, information which was valuable to authorities.
Joe Damman, a trustee, said in a press release, “The trustees commend this individual for his brave actions and are pleased to recognize him for his efforts.
“Community involvement does make a difference in the fight against crime.”
The Crime Stopper is seeking the help of the public in solving a theft.
Between Dec. 2011 and April 7, 2012, several antique engines were taken from a barn, located on property in the 2200 block of Co. Rd. F in the Swanton area.
Engines taken include a 1.5-horsepower Fairbanks- Morris; a 12-hp Wisconsin, and a Mercury 10-hp outboard motor. Also missing were four carts on swivel casers. Total loss: $1,050.
Those with information should call 800-255-1122. Calls are confidential, anonymous. Informants are eligible for rewards of up to $1,000 cash.
