High Country Crime Stoppers and Boone Police seek the public’s assistance in solving the following crime:
On Sunday, February 26, 2018, a set of wheels and tires were removed from a new Honda CRV in the back parking lot of Friendship Honda - 1440 Blowing Rock Road. Surveillance video shows a white or silver Chevy Blazer pull into the back of the parking lot around 6:04 p.m. and it then leaves. The same vehicle returned around 7:18 p.m. and leaves again. At 8:03 p.m. a white male is seen walking around through the dealership. He is also seen walking around vehicles parked in the back near the garage. The male then walks back to where the CRV was located.
High Country Crime Stoppers pays rewards for information, which leads to arrests; recovery of stolen property; seizure of drugs and the location of wanted persons.
High Country Crime Stoppers is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization operated by a volunteer community board of directors serving Avery and Watauga Counties. High Country Crime Stoppers encourages the reporting of information or leads which can assist law enforcement with solving crimes. Its goal is to help in the fight against crime, but it is not part of the local police departments or sheriff's offices. Each County has a law enforcement coordinator who participates as an advisor to the board but is a non-voting member. The citizen's board is responsible for operations of the program, fund raising, public relations, and approval of rewards.
