Local law enforcement working together to get illegal guns off the street.
This past week members of Lima Allen County Crime Stoppers announced a new program which would pay tipsters who help remove illegal guns from the hands of dangerous criminals.
To be eligible for a 200 dollar reward the information on the illegal weapon must lead to the recovery of the gun, an arrest and subsequent filing of felony charges.
To report an illegal gun or someone who has used a gun in a crime, call Crime Stoppers at 419-229-STOP.
The rewards for the gun tip program are funded from donations.
Donations can be sent to Lima Allen County Crime Stoppers Gun Tip Program at P.O. Box 582 Lima, Ohio 45802.
