Crime Stoppers offers text messaging tool

By Scott Harvey

Greenville – Hunt County Crime Stoppers can now receive crime tips through text messaging.

Tipsters should begin their message with "HuntTips," followed by the crime information, and send to "CRIMES" or 274637.

Once the text is received, the sender will receive a unique tip identification number. This secure application allows the tipster and the investigator to have two-way dialog while keeping the individual anonymous.

Tips can also still be made by phone, at 903-454-2929.

Hunt County Crime Stoppers provides rewards of up to $1,000 for arrests in unsolved crimes.
