-A A +A

TALLAHASSEE — A $20,000 reward is being offered to anyone who provides tips on the release of the two prison inmates using falsified court documents. The reward is being offered by Attorney General Pam Bondi, Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey, and the Crime Stoppers of the Big Bend.

Bondi partnered with Crime Stoppers of the Big Bend Executive Director Sharon Ofuani to offer up to $10,000 for information provided to FDLE that leads to the arrest and conviction of the party or parties that constructed the forged documents or harbored and assisted prison inmates Charles Walker and Joseph Jenkins after the escape.

This amount is in addition to the up to $10,000 that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is offering for the same information, bringing the total up to $20,000. 

“The illegal operation to help release two murderers who were serving life sentences involved more than just the prisoners,” Bondi said. “This money is in addition to the up to $10,000 that FDLE is offering.”
