Crimestoppers 'Street Sweep' returns today for 90 minutes

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

WALB News 10 will team up with CRIME STOPPERS and area law enforcement agencies Monday to get most wanted fugitives off our streets, after the huge success last year's effort brought. 

Viewers' tips played the biggest part in this crime fighting effort then and will be the focus of this year's special.  

During First News At 5:00 and WALB News 10 at 6:00, our first CRIME STOPPERS STREET SWEEP will be headquartered right here in our newsroom. It's your chance to get the 25 most wanted fugitives off the streets.

The goal of the WALB CrimeSTOPPERS Street Sweep is to get some of South Georgia's Most Wanted criminals off the streets.


For 90 minutes, starting at 5 p.m. Thursday, WALB will show mugshots of criminals and ask viewers to call in tips.


It's an unprecedented crime fighting partnership between WALB and area law enforcement agencies. And its success hinges on public response.


CrimeStoppers volunteers and law officers will work inside our newsroom to take your calls and deploy arrest teams.


Not only will this clean up the streets, but callers who provide helpful information can get a reward of up to $1,000.
