Motorola Solutions offers $50,000 reward in Fox Lake officer's murder
Schaumburg-based Motorola Solutions Inc. is pledging a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of three suspects in the murder of Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz in Fox Lake.
"This happened in the area that surrounds our headquarters and we have many employees that call this home," Motorola spokesman Steve Gorecki said.
In the fourth day of the manhunt, officials held a news conference Friday to discuss the case and Motorola Solutions' Territory Vice President Ali Kapadia offered the company's reward, Gorecki said.
"We feel we need to do this because this officer had worked tirelessly and was committed to safety in his community," Gorecki said.
Motorola Solutions joins a growing number of supporters seeking three men suspected of shooting to death Lt. Gliniewicz. His body was found Tuesday near Honing Road in Fox Lake. Authorities continue to search the region and investigate countless tips to find the suspects.
This is the first time Motorola Solutions has offered such a reward in a crime, mostly because the tragedy happened so close to home, Gorecki said.
Motorola Solutions, which makes safety equipment and communication devices for police and fire departments worldwide, also sells its equipment to the village of Fox Lake and surrounding community police forces, Gorecki said.
Anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects should call (800) CALLFBI or visit www.fbi.gov.
