HOME INVASIONS REWARD-OC, VO, SS


INVESTIGATORS DO NOT BELIEVE THE HOME INVASION IS LINKED TO UNSOLVED CRIMES IN COLLIER COUNTY.

SINCE MID-FEBRUARY, ARMED MEN HAVE TARGETED FIVE FAMILIES.

BUSTING INTO THE HOMES, TYING UP THE FAMILY, AND HOLDING THEM AT GUNPOINT.

CRIMESTOPPERS ARE BUMPING UP THE REWARD TO FIND THE

Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers announced today a $7,500 enhanced reward for information leading to arrests in connection with five home invasions in Collier County since February.

Crime Stoppers has established an enhanced reward fund. At the request of residents from some of the affected communities in Collier County, a separate reward fund was opened this week by Crime Stoppers for anyone who wishes to contribute to the reward.

As of Thursday, the current reward amount is $7,500, with $6,500 coming from anonymous donors and $1,000 from Crime Stoppers.

"Of course we always hope that anyone with information will come forward because it's the right thing to do, but at the end of the day money talks, and the increased reward may encourage someone to do just that," said Crime Stoppers Coordinator Trish Routte.

Crime Stoppers expects the reward fund to grow. Updates will be provided as that happens.

A task force made up of members of the Collier County Sheriff's Office, Naples Police Department, Marco Island Police Department, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and FBI is working day and night, sharing intelligence information and resources in an effort to solve these crimes and arrest those responsible.

AS VIDEO OF THE ARREST WENT VIRAL, MORE THAN 100 POLICE OFFICERS STATE-WIDE ACCESSED HER INFORMATION THROUGH DAVID.

12:38:54 We knew immediately who ran it through the data base. 12:38:56

TURNS OUT COLLIER COUNTY DEPUTY PETER DEFFET DID.

mark Baker/Collier Deputy / 12:38:17 While that case was ongoing then the NBC-2 News people request came in subsequently thereafter. 12;38;23

dave's Question / 01:03:23 What can be done to ensure this doesn't happen again? 01:03:25

leslie Palmer / 57:44 Some additional controls were put into place. One of those random audits that this department will now do going out to the requesting agency. 57:52

OFFICERS ALSO MUST CHECK A BOX VERYIFYING THEY'RE USING THE SYSTEM FOR ACTUAL BUSINESS.
