August results announced

Posted on 03/10/2018

A total of 40 people were charged with a range of serious offences during August thanks to information provided by the community, along with three firearms seized by police.

During August our weekly crime segment on 9News Adelaide supported National Missing Persons Week and called for any information about several long-term missing South Australians, profiled the unsolved disappearance and presumed murder of young mother Tanja Ebert and the $200,000 reward on offer to find her remains, called for help to solve the murders of Damian Cauchi and Russell Bradshaw and sought assistance to identify a man wanted for a brutal one-punch attack at the Salisbury Interchange.

During August:

  • We received nearly 2000 telephone calls and reports via the website and Report Suspicious Behaviour app;
  • We provided police with a total of 971 intelligence reports;
  • 894 actions were issued, resulting in 55 apprehensions;
  • More than 10,000 people went to the Crime Stoppers SA website and generated more than 27,000 page views;
  • 3 firearms were seized amongst an arsenal of other dangerous weapons;
  • 81 cannabis plants, 2.2kg of dried cannabis and 128g of Amphet-Meth was located;
  • 29 males and 11 females were charged with a range of serious offences.

If you have any information about criminal activity and unsolved crimes, then don’t forget that you can call our free hotline on 1800 333 000, go to crimestopperssa.com.au or download the free Report Suspicious Behaviour app for iOS and Android phones.

And as always, rewards are available and you can remain anonymous.
