Holiday Rewards for Turning in Crooks

It`s the ultimate naughty list and not quite what you would call a Christmas card: pages and pages of people wanted by police. 

“The awareness of criminal activity is heightened during the holiday season because there are so many people out and about,” said Chip Washington with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

The Sheriff’s Office hopes you’ll be one of their elves and take a look at this website called idthisperson.com.

If you recognize someone just type their name in and push enter.

The website will pass the info to the Sheriff’s office.

It is the Season of Giving so the private company running the website will stuff your stocking for helping out.

If you positively id someone they’ll send you a $25 gift card.

Washington says they’ve made arrests because of the site, and with so much exposure on the sheriff`s office Facebook page and websites like this it’s getting pretty hard for wanted fugitives to stay hidden.

“In this city you either know someone, or you`re related to someone, or know someone who knows that person,” said Washington.
