Whenever a state lists the most wanted criminals on a web site and asks for information about them, the capture rate is high. Take for example in Colorado, when Crime Stoppers and Fugitive Location Apprehension updated their 50 Most Wanted Criminals List, it resulted in six arrests within a few days. Many of the criminals who were spotlighted were wanted for murder or were sex offenders and even some were wanted for white-collar crimes.
Law enforcement can’t do this without the support of the community and their tips. In Colorado alone, some 39,000 people have warrants out for their arrests. Many of these people are career criminals. When they are not in jail, they are out victimizing people. That is why it is important to help law enforcement catch these people.
To help law enforcement in Minnesota, a good web site is Minnesota’s Most Wanted. This web site breaks out the most wanted by Fugitives, Unsolved Crimes, Cold Cases, Escapees and Absconders, Bail Jumpers, Missing Persons, Child Support Enforcement, Incarcerated Offenders in jail or prison, recently released offenders and registered sex offenders.
If you have a tip, you can anonymously call crime stoppers and may receive a reward for your tip. Let’s get these criminals off the street and in jail where they belong.
