Wilmington Police Department recently arrested a local man on multiple drug charges after a substantial anonymous tip came through the tip411 application.
According to a correspondent, Wilmington PD’s narcotics received a tip from an anonymous tipster through the WPD tip411 program. After a two-month investigation, they had obtained enough information to execute a search warrant.
The search led to the discovery of 38 grams of cocaine, 30 grams of methamphetamine, 366 grams of marijuana, 82 bindles of heroin, and 118 doses of Percocet in the house. Along with the drugs, Wilmington PD also seized $8,000. Police then arrested Kawaun Marquee Canty, 42, for numerous drug trafficking-related offenses.
Wilmington PD said this case is a great example of how citizens can get involved, utilize the tip411 platform, and provide police with valuable information anonymously.
The Wilmington Police Department mobile app is available to download for free from the Google Play Store and the iTunes App Store. Citizens can also submit an anonymous text tip with their cell phone by texting the keyword “WPDNC” and their message/tip to 847411
