PHOENIX -- The FBI is now offering a $200,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a man sought in the 2004 murder of an armored car guard in Phoenix.
Jason Derek Brown, 43, allegedly shot and killed Robert Keith Palomares during an armed robbery outside a movie theater and fled with more than $56,000 in cash.
FBI officials said Brown has ties to California, Arizona and Utah. He was spotted in Salt Lake City in August 2008.
Brown is 5 feet 10 inches tall, 170 to 180 pounds, and has blond hair and green eyes. He is well-educated, speaks fluent French, and was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
His aliases include Jason D. Brown, Derek Brown, Greg Johnson, Harline Johnson, Greg Harline Johnson, John Brown and Jay Brown.
Brown was added to the FBI's 10 Most Wanted list in 2007. The original reward for Brown was $100,000.
"The FBI relies heavily on the public's assistance in cases such as this, and we believe the additional reward will result in increased tips and ultimately lead to the capture of this dangerous fugitive," said Steven R. Hooper, acting special agent in charge of the Phoenix Division.
