Tip from crime reporting app leads to arrest of fugitive

An anonymous tip sent in through the STOPit app helped police arrest Justin Tomlinson, 29, of Manville, who had skipped a court appearance on burglary charges, Somerset County Prosecutor Michael H. Robertson said.

The STOPit app can be used to submit tips and alert police to crimes. Somerset County began using the app in the fall.

Robertson said the tip came in to the Somerset County Communications Center at 1 a.m. on Friday, and included information on Tomlinson’s location.

Tomlinson, named a Somerset County Fugitive of the Week in December, was arrested by Manville police.

STOPit app is a neighborhood watch on steroids

A warrant had been issued for Tomlinson on Sept. 11 when he failed to appear in Somerset County Superior Court after being charged with third-degree burglary. Tomlinson was held at the Somerset County Jail pending a detention hearing.

The STOPit app allows for anonymous two-way communications with dispatchers and police.

Since 2007, The United States Marshals Service has been partnered with Peter St. James and the “NH Wake Up Show” featuring the “Fugitive of the Week” program for the State of New Hampshire.
