GREENFIELD – Officials from the Greenfield Police Department (GPD) say a Richmond man is behind bars as a result of tips received from the public through the new GPD 411 tip app. Greenfield Police Detectives had been seeking the identity of a person who had exposed his genitals to people Sept. 23 at Walmart.

Community members submitted tips through the new GPD anonymous app tip platform called, tip411. Officials with GPD say that led to the positive identification of the suspect, Charles G. Moore, 61, Richmond. Detectives arrested Moore Wednesday. He was taken to the Hancock County Jail and charged with public indecency, a Level 6 Felony.

“We are very pleased with our new tip411 platform and want to encourage people to use it,” said deputy chief Chuck McMichael. “We have received multiple tips from this service already and have been able to clear three missing persons cases with information received from the public.”

The Greenfield Police app can be downloaded for both Android and Apple devices by simply searching for “Greenfield Police” in the app store. Information can also be sent to the GPD by text message. To send information via text, enter 847411 in “to” line and begin your message with GPDTIP and then the information. Another way of sending information to the GPD is with the online form on their website at www.greenfieldin.org. All information received from these methods of submission is completely anonymous.
