Albany - The search for Johnny Hill was one of the most intense manhunts in South Georgia in recent years. Hundreds of law enforcement officers combed the city and every tip that came in was checked out. And those tips really started coming up after word that a reward was offered in the case.
Three people came forward and offered $1000 each for the arrest of the shooter. One of them was an East Albany laundry mat owner who talked with Karen Cohilas.
On Thursday, Fred Brooks acted as though he won the lottery. We first introduced you to him Wednesday. He's a humble, community minded business owner, who said Tim Harvey is a good cop and he simply wanted to help find his shooter. Brooks owns Five Points Laundry in East Albany, an area Harvey used to patrol. After learning his favorite officer had been shot, Brooks offered a $1000 reward.
He said Harvey is kind to the community and tough on crime. "I feel like I didn't lose money," he said. "I feel like I actually won a prize. I felt excited as soon as I heard about it. I feel Albany is a safer place. Get well, officer Tim."
Fred Brooks said he spoke to "Officer Tim", as he calls him, Wednesday and that he was shocked and humbled that someone had offered a reward on his behalf. He hoped to visit with him later Thursday. Albany police say the reward money will be given to the tipster, or tipsters, who lead them to Hill who was hiding out in Camilla, upon his conviction.
