Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Central Alabama CrimeStoppers is releasing its total figures for arrests and reward pay outs for 2013 and the numbers are pretty impressive.

For 2013, up through December 15, CrimeStoppers has seen an increase in cases cleared by just under 200 percent and the number of arrests have increased by almost 110 percent.

For the year a total of 757 cases were cleared, or closed. There were 301 arrests.

When they say "Your tip could lead to a cash reward..." they're being serious. The organization handed out just under $18,000 to anonymous tip givers for the year.

When looking at the numbers going all the way back to 1997 when CrimeStoppers got started, there have been just over 3,000 cases closed, just over 1,400 arrests made and nearly $90,000 given to tipsters.
