Morgan Howard

A man was arrested in Forrest County after an anonymous caller tipped the sheriff’s department off.
38-year-old Jonathon Robertson was listed on the Forrest County Sheriff’s website on the Most Wanted page.
A tip called in to Crime Stoppers led authorities with Metro Narcotics to a location where Robertson was taken into custody without incident.
Metro Crime Stoppers Board President Charley McCaffrey said “The board is glad that Crime Stoppers tips are leading to more arrests and solved crimes in the Pine Belt. It’s good to reward citizens for their information. We also appreciate the dedication and professionalism of the Forrest County Sheriff’s office for their involvement in our mission.”
FCSO Sheriff Charlie Sims “Let’s face it, there are crimes that occur that could not be solved without the help of our citizens. Crimestoppers is a great tool for law enforcement and allows the public to help without the fear of reprisals and be rewarded at the same time.”
If your tip leads to an arrest or a crime solved, you could be rewarded with up to $1000. Tips can be sent anonymously through a link on our website:
As the Crime Stoppers Lady Diane James says: “All we want is your information, not your name!”
