Rusty Kidd offering $3,000 reward in drive-by shootings

Milledgeville's state representative says he's offering $3,000 of his own money for information leading to arrests in the city's string of drive-by shootings.

"It's terrible," Rusty Kidd said. "People need to come forward with information to get these people off the streets."

That brings the reward total to $5,000, including $1,000 from Macon Regional Crimestoppers and $1,000 from the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office.

Milledgeville and Baldwin County are investigating 15 shootings in the past month and a half. Investigators say they believe the shootings are connected and gang-related.

Kidd says he's putting up an additional $3,000 toward the reward that leads to arrests on Milledgeville drive by shootings. It's his personal money. Kidd, a longtime Atlanta lobbyist, has represented the district since 2010.

Anyone with information on the shootings can call Crimestoppers at 1-877-68-CRIME.
