Man Helps Deputies But Receives no Reward

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) _ A pawn shop manager who alerted authorities to the location of a man accused of killing a Broward Sheriff's deputy might not be eligible for a $25,000 reward because he dialed 911. The reward is sponsored by Crime Stoppers, a private organization.

Scott Kelly dialed 911 after a customer told him Michael Mazza was sitting in a car outside Uptown Pawn and Jewelry in Hollywood.

He says Crime Stoppers has told him they have to review his reward
claim, because he didn't call the Crime Stoppers hot line.

Kelly says ``When you hear there's a dangerous criminal outside your door, you don't go to Google to see what number you
should call. You call 911, and that's what I did.''

But Kelly says he wasn't looking for a bounty, and he's just happy authorities caught up with Mazza.
