Reward increased for fugitive Luis Rodriguez

By on May 16, 2013

Dare County Crime Line has announced that the reward for information leading to the apprehension of Luis Alberto Rodriguez has been raised to $2,000.

Rodriguez was charged with three felonies and DUI after a crash at a malfunctioning traffic light killed a visitor from Lenoir on Oct. 5, 2011.

His Chevy Lumina collided with a pickup driven by Paul Davis at the intersection of Colington Road and U.S. 158 in Kill Devil Hills. Police say Rodriguez ran through a flashing red light.

The pickup flipped, killing passenger Joseph Storie, 51. Two other passengers in the truck — Storie’s wife and sister — were hurt. Rodriguez was also injured and was taken to a Norfolk hospital.

An extra reward of $1,000 has been offered by the Storie family.

Contact numbers for Crime Line are  (252) 473-3111 or (800) 745-2746.

Only a 50K bond for multiple felonies including MURDER?
what was the judge thinking?

Everyone else in the justice system saw the risk
we don’t even have a tracking device for Murders suspects???

Walmart does a better job of tracking their inventory than we can do tracking murder suspects??

We need a few improved tools and processes here people. if liberal judges, god bless them, are going to let murder suspects run around loose with no restraints we need a system to track them, and that’s money Id pay in an extra 50 cent a year tax.

My children and wife drive these roads also, if we let the crazy drunks kill us at will who is to blame but us? Demand change in the next election.

It cant change this families loss but it should encourage the rest of us to stop accepting that we have to live with these people destroying our families at will.

Maybe the judge that released this guy not once but twice should consider contributing to the reward.
