Anonymous Tip Helps Locate Stolen Car

Last Friday an anonymous person submitted a tip through TipSubmit stating there was suspicious activity at the apartments at 100 Robins West Parkway.  It referenced a gold Jeep and four males that were acting suspicious around the complex.

Officers were immediately sent to the area and found the vehicle.  A continuing investigation revealed the car was stolen out of Florida.  The car was towed and the victim was notified.

The males could not be located in the complex.  No arrests were made.

TipSubmit allows a person to remain anonymous by securely submitting crime information to the Warner Robins Police Department.

The program was successful earlier this year.  An anonymous person submitted a tip regarding suspicious activity around her neighborhood.  Officers were able to locate the car and make an arrest regarding a Felony Violation of Parole warrant and possession of marijuana. 

The program offers three different ways to communicate with law enforcement -

  1. Through standard mobile texting by typing 274637(CRIMES) in the "send to" field number and then type WRPD and the tip into the body of the text message

  2. Access the TipSoft Web Form

  3. Download the free mobile iPhone or Andriod app that allows users to submit photographs with the tip
