CASH REWARD up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the person(s) responsible for the murder of local businessman Alan Robertson.

On a dark spring night in 1996, the eerie sounds of low circling helicopters signaled something terribly wrong in the neighborhood. A search was underway and the newscast shortly confirmed our suspicion but the shock of the event was so much more than one could fathom.

A good friend to our community, Alan Robertson, had been murdered. The next day Rotarians Glenn Richey, Bob Lloyd, George Mirabal and Tom Vogel met to discuss a course of action. With few clues available to solve the crime it was decided that funds would be raised for a reward for information leading to an arrest. Through private support a $20,000 reward was raised.

As time passed with no arrests, frustration led the committee to finding a way to aid law enforcement with their efforts. A successful program in Miami, linked to a nationwide operation, led to the development of an area chapter of Crime Stoppers. With the support of the local Police and Sheriff's Department's and cooperative community spirit the organization has become what is today known as Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida.


The suspect is described as a tall, thin, B/M in his early 30's.
