The reward for information leading to an arrest of the perpetrators who fired a barrage of bullets at the home of two Camden County Police officers last week increased to $100,000 Friday afternoon, authorities said.
The reward had reached over $50,000 late last week as investigators continued their search for the people who fired 10 shots at the home of the married cops who were on the second floor of their Clinton Street home with their newborn baby.
The nine organizations have pledged money are:
The New Jersey Policemen’s Benevolent Association (PBA) – $20,000
Federal Burau of Investigations – $10,000
Lawmen Supply Company – $10,000
Anonymous Donor – $10,000
U.S. Marshals Service – $10,000
FOP Lodge 218 – $5,000
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) – $5,000
Miller Mendel, Inc. – $2,500
First Colonial Bank of Collingswood – $2,500
Fraternal Order Police, New Jersey State Lodge – $25,000
“On behalf of the entire Camden County Police Department, I want to express my sincerest gratitude to each of these organizations that have stepped up to aid us in this search,” said Camden County Police Chief Joseph Wysocki has said. “This was an attack on two members of our department who have not only sworn to protect the people of this city, but who have worked tirelessly to better their community each and every day. We are continuing to ask that anyone with information that may be related to this crime to contact our department.”
The only clue police have divulged to the public is that three people were in the vehicle that fired upon the home and they identified a 1998 dark-colored Honda Odyssey with a temporary paper tag in the area during the incident. Last Thursday, police located and towed the minivan for further investigation, police said.
Since that time, no other information about the search has been publicized.
Anyone with information on the shooting or the vehicle that was used in the shooting was urged to call the department’s tip line at 856-757-7420 or use the STOPit app. More contact information for the agency can be found at www.camdencountypd.org and the public was reminded that all tips and information will be considered anonymous.
