What surprised me is Telone’s claim that it has already paid $20 000 thus far this year, when this programme (of rewarding people for reporting vandalism and theft criminals) was not publicly known. So, it stands to reason that Telone was quietly rewarding people who reported criminals that vandalized and stole its property. And now it thought it wise to publicize the programme.
