Get money for turning in shooting suspect

March 4, 2004

Moultrie - There's now a reward to find out who shot the Moultrie Police officer.

More than two weeks ago, Officer Edgar Spradlin was shot while backing up another officer during an arrest on 7th Street Southwest.

The bullet came from a vacant house and hit Spradlin's hip, but first struck his handcuff holder. He was not seriously injured.

There is a $500 reward for anyone who leads them to the arrest and conviction of the suspect. Sgt. Roger Lindsay says, "Since this occured in a residential area and the officer was injured, we think there are people out there that have information."

Spradlin is recovering, but is not back at work yet.

If you have any information, call the Moultrie Police Department at 229-890-5500 or GBI agents in Thomasville at 229-225-4000.
