The new gun bounty program administered by Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay paid off in the first 24 hours. A man was arrested charged with armed robbery. The suspect allegedly stole a backpack from a HARTLINE patron and when the patron gave chase, the robber displayed a gun and demanded the patron’s wallet.
An anonymous tip about the location of the robber led to the arrest of Shakorreon Elijah Hall in a hotel room. The tipster has seen photographs and video from the HARTLINE bus surveillance cameras posted on the Crime Stoppers website.
