August 27--  The Vidalia-Area Crimestoppers are offering rewards for information in local crimes.

The board voted Monday to authorize a $500 reward in the theft of more than $10,000 worth of gas from the Vidalia City school system.  The thief used a gas card stolen from a school bus and made the purchases from Gay Oil in June and July.  In another case, tools valued at more than $1,800 were stolen from two school system maintenance vehicles.

The board also approved a $500 reward in two burglaries.  Police say tools valued at $10,000 were stolen from Rhodes Electric at the J.D. Dickerson Primary School renovation work site in June and July.  Rhodes Electric will match the $500 Crimestoppers' reward.

If you have information about any of these thefts, call Crimestoppers at 1-866-439-6313.  You do not have to give your name and the cash reward will be paid if your information leads to an arrest in the case.
