Operation Game Thief pays for information

The Maine Warden Service wants to remind everyone that Operation Game Thief pays up to $2,000 for information that leads to an arrest and prosecution.

Since its inception, Operation Game Thief has received more than 8,000 calls about poaching. More than 2,500 convictions have resulted in more than $70,000 being paid in rewards.

Callers do not have to reveal their names or testify in court. All the money to support the program comes from donations.

To report an act of poaching, call (800) ALERT-US (253-7887).
