Albany -- The Albany Police Department Investigators say tips to the anonymous  Crimestoppers hotline helped break up a burglary ring.  

Tuesday afternoon, police announced the arrests of five suspects. 18-year old Travis Blocker, 19-year old Dantravious Frazier, 18-year old Antwan Lamons, 18-year old Larrius McCoy, and a 16-year old are charged with 14 burglaries.

 

Police say the arrests prove your tips help them solve crimes. "We want the community to know, due to their input we've got results," said APD Lt. James Williams. "Property, approximately $2000 worth of property has been recovered and some has been returned back to the owners."  

Investigators say over the last six months, the suspects broke into homes and businesses and stole things they could easily sell, like electronics and tools.  

Just last month, Albany Police restarted the long-dormant Crimestoppers program. You can give anonymous tips about any crime by calling 436-TIPS.
