Time to have someone arrested for their annoying habits

Jail and Bail event is primary fundraiser for Crime Stoppers.

Do you have a colleague that leaves a coffee pot empty? How about a spouse that leaves the toilet seat up? Maybe a friend that constantly texts while trying to have a conversation with them?

This is your chance to have them arrested for their misdemeanors in the annual Crime Stopper’s Jail & Bail.

Crime Stoppers is a group of volunteers that work with citizens, the media, and law enforcement agencies to make their community safe. Crime Stoppers gives anonymity to people that want to provide information on crime to the police.

“Each year the citizens of Terrace strongly support this cause. The event is the primary fundraiser for the Terrace Crimestoppers Society,” says Ian Nankervis, President of the Terrace Crimestoppers Society.

This Riverboat Days Event kicks off the festival on Friday, July 29th, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Bell Media Parking lot. Terrace Sheriffs and RCMP members from Terrace, Nass Valley, and Kitimat will be making the arrests.

Defense counsel Bryan Crampton has volunteered to sit as judge. Mr. Mikes will be on hand cooking up burgers by donation.

If you would like to issue an arrest for a friend, family member, or colleague fill out a registration form and fax it to Barb Petrick at 250-635-7695 or by email to bpetrick@elan-travel.com.

Deadline for registration is July 28th.

For more information and registration forms visit Crime Stoppers Terrace-Kitimat on Facebook or go to www.terracecrimestoppers.ca.
