Cell phone that perp right into a cell:
Looking for help from witnesses who would rather text than talk, the (New Castle County police–ed.) department is the first in Delaware to offer a tip line for citizens to report crime by sending anonymous messages on their cell phones.
Officials are hoping Text-A-Tip will reel in young people who are reluctant to talk to police.
“What we’ve seen so many times is our detectives are out there on major crime scenes, and the kids are out there on the street corner texting each other about what happened,” Senior Sgt. Michael Walsh said. “We’d like to be able for them to text us.”
