“Mr. Crime Stoppers“ to be incarcerated in Crime Stoppers Jail
Friends are invited to visit … bring bail money Saturday, June 12, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Elroy Lemke, a/k/a “Heinie,” is in jail. The Crime Stoppers jail, that is. And perhaps that should say will be in jail, as he will be incarcerated on June 12, 2021.
Heinie, age 98, was a founding board member of Crime Stoppers of Lincoln County, and is still affectionately referred to as “Mr. Crime Stoppers.”
Among his contributions to Crime Stoppers was the construction of a “jail” to accompany Crime Stoppers’ promotional appearances. Recently, when the jail was showing its age, he created a new jail. To test out its security, Heinie will be “locked up” awaiting bail at the Crime Stoppers’ fundraising Shred Day, on Saturday, June 12, beginning at 9:00 a.m., in the Kindhearted Home Care parking lot on the corner of East Main and Mill Streets.
His many friends are invited to visit Heinie in the lockup at this time, where visitors’ privilege can be obtained with a donation to his Crime Stoppers bail fund. Photo opportunities will be available.
The Shred Day event will also take place at this location from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. Anyone with confidential papers to shred can bring them and watch them be shredded. There is a suggested donation of $5 per bag which will go to fund Crime Stoppers activities. For more information, call Ken at 715.218.0159.
