Million dollar reward for alleged cop killer: LA mayor
LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Sunday announced a US$1 million (S$1.23 million) reward for information leading to the capture of a fugitive ex-cop suspected of three murders.
"We will not tolerate anyone undermining the security, the tranquility of our neighborhoods and our communities," Villaraigosa said at a news conference announcing the reward.
"We will not tolerate this reign of terror that has robbed us of the peace of mind that residents of southern California deserve. We will not tolerate this murderer remaining at large," he said.
The mayor said local leaders, businesses, unions, law enforcement and community groups had pooled resources to raise the reward money.
