DEERFIELD – Jim Glorioso, executive director of the Mohawk Valley Crime Stoppers, joined NewsTalk on Thursday afternoon to talk about an upcoming basket drive and auction.

Money raised from the event will go toward reward money for anonymous tipsters who provide information that leads to an arrest.

“This program is amazing,” Glorioso said. “The community really has embraced it here in the Utica-Rome area and that’s what makes it successful. It really is important to have a partnership between the law enforcement, the local media and the community. And with that you get the results, and we’re seeing that.”

A basket drive and auction will be held Saturday, March 31 at the Rome VFW Post 2264 to raise donations for tip rewards. More than 100 baskets have been collected for the event, which will be from 1-5 p.m.
