TUPELO BANK ROBBERY-CNN PLEASE HELP
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
On Dec. 23rd. two Tupelo, MS policemen were gunned down in heavy holiday traffic after a bank robbery. One, Sgt. Gale Stauffer, died at the scene in front of dozens of citizens he died protecting. The other remains in the hospital. Their heroic actions undoubtedly saved many citizens that day. Gale is an Afghanistan vet and leaves two small children. Our small city has never lost a police officer in the line of duty. PLEASE, CNN, feature the FBIs wanted release more prominently- maybe Anderson Cooper could do something. SOMEBODY knows something. Area businesses have donated $152.000 reward money and it's growing. Thank you.
ADDENDUM: The FBI has just connected this bank robbery with a bank robbery in Atlanta earlier the same day The reward has been increased to $202, 500.
