The brutal murder of an armored truck driver remains unsolved six years after it happened. It was a crime that shocked the Ahwatukee community, an armored car heist that ended with the cold-blooded murder of an armed guard. And the man believed responsible is still on the loose.
The assassination took place during a routine cash pick up at the AMC theaters near 48th Street and Ray Road on the Monday after Thanksgiving in 2004.
Police later named Jason Derek Brown as their main suspect. Brown is 5 feet 10 inches tall with blond hair and green eyes.
Police said Brown is the man who opened fire on guard Keith Palomares as he walked back to his armored vehicle. Brown then grabbed the bag of money and took off on a bike. The bike was found nearby -- but Brown has never been caught.
Brown grew up in southern California, and spent time in Salt Lake City and Nevada.
There are several rewards being offered for Brown's arrest totaling more than $100,000. Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS (480-948-6377). A reward is being offered for information leading to Brown's arrest.
