Each Wednesday, we release surveillance videos and photos of some of our most wanted suspects from that week. With the help of community tipsters and excellent detective work, many of those cases are closed. This week, we’re putting the spotlight back on a handful of our most wanted suspects for 2014. If you have any information that could help us track them down, please can call 1-866-411-TIPS. Tipsters don’t have to give their name and could be eligible for a substantial cash reward.
Bayron Cruz-Vargas – 1st Degree Murder
Our Homicide Unit is working to find and arrest Bayron Cruz-Vargas. He’s wanted for the murder of 28-year-old Jacinto Perez in Laurel in August. Detectives have already arrested one suspect in this murder. On August 24th, patrol officers were called to Enfield Court for a body found in a bag. Officers discovered a second bag with body parts in it. Perez was later identified as the victim. The suspects and victim were roommates. The investigation reveals the three men got into an argument inside their apartment that turned violent and ultimately escalated to the murder. If you have any information that could help us arrest Cruz-Vargas, please call 301-772-4925 or 1-866-411-TIPS.
Murder of Hollis Bradford Johnson
Homicide Unit detectives are also working to arrest the suspect who shot and killed Hollis Bradford Johnson in Chillum in October. Detectives strongly believe there are citizens who have critical information in this case. Anyone with information is encouraged to call our Crime Solvers line. Tipsters never have to give their name and could be eligible for an up to $25,000 reward.
Detectives released surveillance video of the suspect. Johnson was killed in an entryway of his apartment building on Chillum Road on October 27th. The video shows the suspect approaching the building while the victim unknowingly holds open the door. Seconds later, the suspect shot Johnson and then ran from the building. He sped away in a light-colored, four-door sedan. The car’s windows are tinted and it has halogen headlights. Detectives do not believe the victim and suspect knew each other.
Please call 301-772-4925 or 1-866-411-TIPS with any information.
