There's a new crime fighting tool turning heads off the Eastex Freeway. It's a new digital billboard dedicated to getting wanted criminals off the street. Clear Channel and Crime Stoppers teamed up to bring the first digital Crime Stoppers billboard to the Houston area. It's located off Highway 59 near Bush Intercontinental Airport. Houston is one of 40 cities putting up the billboards. Anytime authorities need the public's help, they can post a suspect's picture in just seconds.

The first person to be featured on the new digital billboard is the "Reckless Robber," wanted for several bank robberies in Houston and San Antonio. If you have any information that can help police, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
