SPRINGFIELD — A Missouri woman said she deserves a reward for turning in a British man suspected of pulling off a $1.6 million heist in 1993.
A lawyer for 25-year-old Jessica S. King said she is pursuing a $158,000 reward offered for information leading to the arrest of Edward John Maher, who's suspected of robbing an armored car in Britain and then disappearing for 19 years.
Ozark police and FBI agents arrested Maher earlier this month after King tipped them off that he was in southern Missouri. He's being held on Missouri gun charges.
Lawyer Brandon Potter says King feels she's entitled to the reward.
The Kansas City Star reported that Potter is trying to determine the exact specifications of the original reward offer.
