Crime Stoppers success stories

Crimestoppers: Positive policing

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Crime Stoppers is celebrating some success stories.
CMPD's gang unit got a Crime Stoppers tip about drug activity at a home on 14435 Whistling Swan Road in southwest Charlotte.

They set up a nearby traffic stop and arrested Nicholas Todd Gaddy of Union County, charging him with possession with intent to sell three pounds of marijuana valued at $3,000.00.

Because of that arrest, search warrants were obtained and detectives went into the home and seized $10,000.00 of marijuana and nearly $19,000.00 in cash.

But this story isn't over.

Police have issued drug warrants for Huy Anh Tran who is a previously convicted felon. Tran is 5'6" and 190 pounds with a bald head.

Crime Stoppers also got a recent tip about marijuana being sold from a home at 2020 Tyvola Road. Officers arrested Joseph Gibson, seizing three firearms, $1,500 worth of marijuana and $500 dollars worth of cocaine.

Now, Crime Stoppers needs a tip to identify a woman.

Police say she and another man pulled what's known as a "pigeon drop" on an 87-year-old victim. They say she somehow convinced the elderly woman to withdraw $1,522.00 from her checking and savings, promising she would share in greater riches, which never came about.

If you know anything, please call Crime Stoppers at (704) 334-1600 and you could earn some bona fide riches.
