Citizens who provide information leading to an arrest could receive a cash reward.
Frederick, Md (KM) The Frederick Police Department joined Metro Crime Stoppers of Maryland in March.. The organization encourages individuals to report information they have on crimes in the city which could net them a cash reward.
“We hope it will motivate people with knowledge who committed crimes to make those tips, whether it’s motivated out of selfishness or they need the money. To get cash in your pocket for helping solve a crime that’s a just a win-win for the tipster and the police department,” says Lt. Kirk Henneberry, Commander of the Frederick Police Criminal Investigation Division.
He says Metro Crime Stoppers will highlight two crimes from Frederick this month. One of them is the murder of William Goines Jr. “Back in October, 2010, we had that homicide in the 200 block of Madison Street. It’s been unsolved for almost ten years now. So we are hoping someone there, knowing they can get a reward, would be motivated to log into the Metro Crime Stoppers website and give us a tip,” says Lt. Henneberry.

The other case is a kidnapping and rape which occurred on March 25th, 2018. Lt. Henneberry says the victim had been out drinking and passed out; and a person who appeared to be helping her ended up raping her. “Through the investigation, we did get some video footage of a vehicle and a suspect. It took about a year to link that vehicle and suspect, and get that person’s name, and confirm through investigative measures that the person involved, the suspect, was Roberto Carlos Campos-Roque,” says Hennberry.
A warrant was issued for his arrest, but his whereabouts are unknown.
Anyone who knows where Campos-Roque is can go on line to http://metrocrimestoppers.org/can-you-help-find-this-man-wanted-on-rape-and-kidnapping-charges/
Lt. Henneberry says these cases were chosen at random by detectives “We do plan on getting more cases to Metro Crime Stoppers for them to showcase on their website,” he said “But we just got to start with a few and don’t want to inundate them. at this point. But maybe do a couple a month.”
