Highway- Shooting Award

Las Vegas police to honor Nevada tipster in Ohio shootings case

A Las Vegas tipster who led authorities to Ohio's highway shooting suspect last month is going to get a police public service award. Clark County Sheriff Bill Young credits Conrad Malsom with sticking with it when dispatchers at first didn't act -- and calls him an example for people who do something if they see crimes or criminals. Malsom learned yesterday that he stands to get 15-thousand dollars of a 60-thousand dollar reward Ohio authorities offered for the capture and indictment of highway shooting suspect Charles McCoy Junior. Malsom found McCoy's car late March 16th in the parking lot of a budget motel just off the Las Vegas Strip. The unemployed salesman had to make numerous calls before police showed up to arrest McCoy early March 17th.
