OTTAWA, Ohio - Putnam County citizens now are eligible for rewards for calling in tips that lead to the arrest or conviction of those responsible for crimes.
County commissioners this week entered into an agreement with Allen County Crime Stoppers to extend the service to Putnam County.
Reward money will be available to tipsters through a $1 additional fee that will be imposed in Putnam County on all municipal, county, or Common Pleas Court cases in which a defendant is convicted or pleads guilty to offenses other than traffic offenses.
