Time for Jail and Bail, Crime Stoppers’ fundraising event, kicking off Riverboat Days this Friday.

Terrace RCMP has been collecting names of people to be arrested and locked up.

Then it’s up to suspects to find someone to pay bail to get them out of jail, minimum of $30, or pony up the money and get themselves out.

There’s always the opportunity to pay more to ensure you won’t get re-arrested by police.

“It is the one time as police officers that we will sometimes accept a monetary payment, commonly referred to as a bribe, to stay out of jail,” says Const. Angela Rabut, community relations/media relations for Terrace RCMP.

Several names have already been reported to police but there’s room for many more.

Suspects will start to be locked up at 11 a.m. thru to 2 p.m. Friday July 31.
