The Escondido Police Department has teamed up with San Diego County Crime Stoppers to offer a reward for information that leads to the arrest of Sergio Lopez.
Sergio Lopez is wanted for shooting at two Escondido Police officers on February 9, 2012, in the 1300 Block of Oak Hill Drive. An extensive manhunt involving uniformed officers, plainclothes officers and three SWAT teams was unsuccessful in locating Lopez.
Officers and investigators from several agencies have continued to look for Lopez in both the United States and Mexico. It is believed he is being hidden from authorities and the reward money is being offered in hopes that someone will come forward with information that will lead to the location of Lopez.
Escondido PD and Crime Stoppers are offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest in this case. To make an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers, call (888) 580-8477 or send an anonymous text or web tip at sdcrimestoppers.com
Anyone with information on the location of Lopez may also contact the Escondido Police Department's Tip Line at (760) 743-TIPS or go to police.escondido.org.
