Man Rewarded With Car For Tip on Deputy Killer

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) _ A pawn shop store manager is getting a car for helping police capture the suspected killer of a Broward County Sheriff's deputy.

Scott Kelly received the donated 1993 Honda del Sol yesterday from the Salvation Army. Kelly didn't own a car and had been walking two and a half miles each way to work.

Kelly, called 911 after Mark Spradley came into the pawn shop and said he unknowingly had been driving Michael Mazza around.

Deputy Paul Rein was taking Mazza to court for a hearing when authorities say Mazza overpowered Rein and killed him with his own
gun in Pompano Beach. Mazza fled in Rein's van and later hitchhiked
to Hollywood. Mazza was arrested at the pawn shop.

Kelly previously received $1,000 for his role.

Spradley has received $27,500.
