Crime Alert launches 16th year with donation from Redner's

WYOMISSING, Pa. - Crime Alert Berks County is starting another year with a king-sized celebration.

The Crime Stoppers organization launched its 16th year Thursday morning with a party at A to Z Vacuum & Fan showroom in Wyomissing.

The Phillie Phanatic and Jeff Krick, impersonating Elvis, were both on hand to entertain the throng of guests, which included elected officials and police chiefs from throughout Berks County.

Redner's Warehouse Markets presented a check to Crime Alert for more than $27,000.

"We have just printed out our fact sheet for August. We aided the police in solving 350 arrests. We paid out over $334,000 over 15 years," said Barry Rohrbach, founder and president, Crime Alert Berks County.

The largest reward Crime Alert is offering is up to $120,000 for information that helps police arrest the person who killed Gary Redner, one of the grocery store chain's executives, in 2008.

Anyone with information about that case or any other crime in Berks County can call Crime Alert Berks County at 877-373-9913.
