CrimeStoppers cashes in

Because CrimeStoppers was running tight on funds, Channel 12’s Deb Dixon had sought independent funding for the Wednesday Wheel of Justice rewards since its Feburary debut. (She spins a carnival wheel plastered with a dozen police mugshots, and police go after that person. So far they’ve caught 26 people in 21 spins!)
