Information provided to Crime Stoppers SA by the community directly led to the discovery of an array of weapons and drugs during May.

Cannabis emerged as the most common drug to be seized for the month, with 651 plants and more than 26kg found at numerous locations across metro Adelaide and country South Australia.

In May we profiled the disappearance and suspected murder of Brahma Lodge woman Gail King, called for help to identify a man wanted for an assault, profiled the unsolved stabbing murder of 36-year old mother Suzanne Poll at the Parabanks Shopping Centre, Salisbury in 1993, and showed a man caught on CCTV wanted for an aggravated assault at the Elizabeth Shopping Centre in February.

We also delivered our online fraud awareness campaign in partnership with Police Credit Union in support of National Scams Awareness Week, to encourage the community to be aware of the different types of online scams.

During May:
– We received 2,151 telephone calls and reports via the website and Report Suspicious Behaviour app;
– We generated and passed on a total of 1167 intelligence reports that resulted in 1045 actions issued for investigation by the police;
– Nearly 8,000 people went to our website and generated 24,297 page views;
– 5 firearms were seized, along with ammunition;
– 29 males and 12 females were charged with offences that included Trafficking a Commercial Quantity of Cannabis, Grow Large Commercial Quantity of Cannabis, firearm offences and more.
