To be eligible for cash rewards, tipsters must provide information to authorities using one of the following methods:

· Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).

All tips are anonymous, regardless of how they are submitted, and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.

All fugitives on the list are considered armed and dangerous.
