Bemidji Police Chief says public can tip law enforcement anonymously through Crime Stoppers MN

A juvenile was arrested in connection to the shooting at the Ridgeway Apartments last Wednesday.

According to a release from Bemidji Police Chief Mike Mastin, the 16-year-old was arrested last Friday near the Pine Ridge Apartments, and charges are pending.

Mastin says law enforcement needs the public’s help in some active investigations, whether it’s related to the staging of dumpsters with flammable materials earlier this summer, or the disappearance of Jeremy Jourdain nearly four years ago.

“If you have information about these crimes you can report it and stay anonymous by contacting Crime Stoppers of Minnesota at their website, by calling the toll free phone number 1-800-222-TIPS [8477]; or by using the P3 Tip Submit app installable on all smartphones. All contact with Crime Stoppers is anonymous and you may qualify for a reward of up to $1,000. The Bemidji Police Department encourages you to submit information to Crime Stoppers so you are free of retribution and remain safe while ‘doing the right thing,'” said Chief Mastin in a release.
