    “If the information leads to an arrest for the illegal possession of a firearm, the ‘tipster’ will be awarded $500,” the post concludes.

    Clear Channel and Metro Crime Stoppers have teamed up on a “gun tip hotline,” to “get the illegal, functioning fire arms off the streets of Baltimore City,” NBC’s WBAL TV 11 reported Tuesday. The program will reward anonymous tipsters with $500 for each “illegal” gun recovered, and $500 for each felony arrest.

    "This is to promote a gun bounty program that Metro Crime Stoppers is promoting and it’s asking people to turn in their guns,"


    Bunch of pikers! Calls to Crime Stoppers offer up to $1,000 for info that leads to an arrest. Gun snitching in an "arsenal" in NY still only gets $500. At least MD offers a chance to make as much gun-snitching as by using Crime Stoppers.


    stay safe.
