Happy new year to you all. Thank you for making 2023 – our 40th year in Hamilton – a successful year for Crime stoppers of Hamilton!
Thanks to your donations and anonymous tips, we have been able to surpass 6000 charges and 6000 arrests since our inception! We’re closing in on 80,000 anonymous tips and almost 1 million dollars in approved reward money! Thank you from us all!
But our work is not complete. Unfortunately, December began in a troubling fashion as there were a handful of very violent crimes that we’re asking for your help with.
On December 1st at approximately 5pm, Police responded to a plaza located at 65 Mall Road for a stabbing. A male was located with a wound caused by an edged weapon.
Later that day, Police attended the area of Bradbury Road and Penny Lane for a shooting into a residence. One party was struck and suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Lastly, On December 3rd at approximately 6am, Police were called to Radison Lane for another shooting.
As always, contact the Hamilton Police Service if you know something about any of these occurrences. However, if you wish to remain anonymous – contact Crime Stoppers. We never ask for your identity, you’ll never have to attend court, and you could earn yourself a reward of up to $2000.00!
Thanks again for your time and have the happiest of new years!
