Great program results for March!

Posted on 27/04/2018

It was a busy month for the Crime Stoppers SA team, with plenty of great results thanks to information from the community.

In March we profiled the unsolved murder of Elizabeth South grandmother Phyllis Harrison in 1998 and asked for help to identify a man wanted for a serious city assault in Rosina Street.

During the month:

  • We received more than 2400 telephone calls and online reports via the website and Report Suspicious Behaviour app;
  • A total of 1115 intelligence reports were generated, and 913 actions issued for investigation;
  • 7700 people went to our website and generated more than 22,000 page views;
  • 2 clandestine drug labs were shut down, and 10g of meth-amphetamine located;
  • 15 firearms were seized, as well as other dangerous weapons and accessories;
  • Stolen property was recovered, including racing pushbikes, a trailer, tools, jewellery and computers;
  • 71 males and 15 females from right across South Australia were apprehended and charged with a wide range of drug and firearm offences; and
  • 565 cannabis plants and more than 8.5kg of dry cannabis seized.

Don’t forget that rewards are available and you can remain anonymous – so if you have any information about criminals and illegal activity, then call the hotline on 1800 333 000, go to crimestopperssa.com.au or download our free Report Suspicious Behaviour app.
