MCPR started printing the paper version back on April 6, 2011. Since then over 128 issues have been printed and the size has increased from 8 pages to 16 pages, with additional pages soon to be added.
The paper is available by both subscription, delivered by the US Post Office, or at over 100 distributors (mostly convenience stores) throughout Montgomery County.
Unlike the web version, we print the complete list of arrest records for the prior week. Around 200 (sometimes more) mugshots of persons arrested are included. Many of these suspects have been recognized by victims of other crimes, who prior to seeing our paper had not known the offender’s identity. Crime Stoppers is included each week with the 10 most wanted felons and news from the past week.
The cost has been $.50 each week, However, due to increased printing costs from the 8 page edition and having to additional delivery people we are being forced to increase the price to $.75 in the near future.
Hundreds of people are currently locked into the $32/ year subscription and have it delivered to their mailbox weekly.
Many of our subscribers are not just from the Montgomery County area. We mail to several military addresses of former residents of Montgomery County who are now located across the United States and yes even inmates in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
Prior to the increase in price for the paper we are honoring the $32 subscription rate. That is $.61 per week delivered to you.
