Windsor-Essex Crime Stoppers Target Fentanyl Dealers


Windsor and Essex County Crime Stoppers is targeting the dangerous and deadly drug Fentanyl.

Titled 'Find the Fentanyl', it has distributed posters highlighting the dangers of using the drug and other opioids.

"We are distributing it throughout the community at different places that we have identified as being a place where there may be people there who have information about persons who may be trafficking fentanyl," says Constable Kristina Gilboe, police coordinator at Crime Stoppers of Windsor and Essex County.

The Crime Stoppers Board of Directors has also approved a $1,000 guaranteed reward campaign for July and August for tips that lead to the arrest of suspects responsible for trafficking fentanyl.

"We launched a similar initiative last year which proved to be very successful," says Gilboe. We fielded dozens of tips and issued two rewards back in 2017."

Anyone with information on people trafficking Fentanyl in Windsor and Essex County are asked to contact crime stoppers at 519-258-8477 or online at www.catchcrooks.com
