PEORIA, Ill. -- Police are thanking some unknown citizens for helping to catch home invasion suspect Perry Rosetto.

Police said two tips from the Crimestoppers hotline lead to Rosetto's arrest. The tips came in a few days ago and may be because of a Crimestoppers re-enactment that has been airing on local TV stations.

"The tips came in were specific and that definitely helps in helping detectives on any case, whether it be this home invasion or other cases, to be able to know which road to go down and who to talk too, who the players are,” said Crimestoppers Coordinator Officer Mike Eeten.

If Rosetto is convicted for the home invasions, the two tippers may see a check of up to $1,000 coming their way.
