An anonymous tipster got a $5,000 dollar check today for helping solve an arson case. The person gave information that led to the suspect in an arson at a home in Worth County in 2007.

Today, the District Attorney, the Arson unit case manager for the state insurance and safety fire commissioner's office and other local officials highlighted this case and encouraged others with information about arsons to come forward.

"People want to live in neighborhoods where they can raise their families and in order to have those kind of neighborhoods you have to have people like this who will report crime and cooperate with you," said District Attorney, Paul Bowden.

The state hands out rewards of up to 10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of an arsonist.

The arson information hotline is 800-282-5804.
