LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – It has been a busy week for Bluegrass Crime Stoppers. Since Sunday, the organization has had a hand in the arrests of four dangerous criminals, all thanks to anonymous calls to the tip line.

Trust in the tip line has never been higher. All you have to do is look at the explosion of activity since the organization set aside $10,000 of donated money to arrest some of central Kentucky’s most violent offenders.

“Every single tip has value. We look at and pass along and move on every single one of them,” said Detective Anthony Delimpo.

The first $2,500 reward from a summer initiative to solve 2022 unsolved homicides will go out this week to the anonymous tipster who helped lead Lexington police to 44-year-old Demonte Cowan for the June 19 murder of Randy Wise on Charles Avenue.

This week, a tip to Crime Stoppers also led Lexington officers to the whereabouts of Nicolas County escapee Jennifer Tolson.

Tuesday night, after numerous dead ends trying to track down Timothy Newsome, Lexington Police surrounded a home on Nickwood Trail and ultimately ended Newsome’s two-year run from investigators.

“Huge, I can’t even say how awesome it is to have Crime Stoppers as a tool,” said narcotics Lt. Corey Doane.

Lexington police provided FOX 56 with a photo showing what detectives churned up during a search warrant on the home. Drugs and multiple guns are now being run through databases that might link them to other unsolved crimes.

“I think the picture says it all,” Doane said.

And finally, Christopher Brown, a two-time Wanted Person of the Week was arrested in Elizabethtown Wednesday morning closing the book on open investigations in at least four Kentucky counties.

“If I could speak to those tipsters that are reaching out, they are making their community safer,” said Delimpo.

The Crime Stoppers tip line is manned 24/7. Leave your anonymous information by calling 859-253-2020 or by going online to p3tips.com.
