Cayman Crime Stoppers pays out US $3000 to an anonymous tipster in November.
It is the largest payment to date handed over to an informant.
According to a Crime Stoppers statement on Monday (3 December,) the individual’s tip-off led to the arrest and criminal charges against a suspect wanted by local police.
The information was called in to the 800-8477 (TIPS) tip line.
Crime Stoppers said the payout follows a recent decision to increase payout limits for certain crimes from $1000 to a maximum of $5000.
The Crime Stoppers hotline 800-TIPS is dialed as a local number but answered overseas. Tipsters are not required to give any form of id or testify in court.
