Tulsa's Crimestoppers program, a major key to solving local crimes

Tulsa's Crimestoppers program has helped solve more than 4,000 felony cases since it began.

The most recent example was Wednesday's arrest of two teenagers in two convenience store robberies and shooting. 17-year-old Darrell Miller [pictured] is charged with murdering Git-N-Go clerk Paul Silkey.

The arrests were possible because of a tip to the anonymous line, that some believe would have come without the extra $10,000 that the company chipped in on the reward. Robert Stark, Git-N-Go President, "I tend to think the clues that came in on this case, that broke the case would've come in whether it was there or not, but I think the 10,000 definitely showed that we were committed to teaming up with the Citizen's Crime Commission and actively looking for a solution to this case."

The Citizen's Crime Commission will hand over the $11,000 dollar reward to one person.
