The holidays can be stressful especially when we're shelling out big bucks for groceries, decorations, and presents.
WITN talked to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office who told us residents are turning to one tool to bring in some extra cash this season.
Karen Ball is the Crime Stoppers coordinator at the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.
She says calling in with a tip is an easy way to make some holiday cash.
She told us Crime Stoppers received six more calls this month compared to last and that calls have been increasing since July.
Ball says law abiding citizens get fed up with criminals, especially during the holidays.
Whether it's to help clean up the streets or for monetary reasons, authorities say they appreciate any and every tip they get. Crime Stoppers is anonymous.
