LA Council Extends $50,000 Reward For Info Leading To Capture Of Law Enforcement Imposters

LOS ANGELES ( — A six-month extension of a $50,000 reward for information leading to the capture of two suspects who gunned down a man in San Pedro while posing as law enforcement officers has been approved by the Los Angeles City Council.

The vote was unanimous 11-0 to extend the reward offer, which stems from the May 31, 2011 murder of 28-year old Amado Lozano. On that date, the suspects entered the victim’s apartment in the 2600 block of South Alma Street at 10:30 a.m. and shot him multiple times, according to Los Angeles police.

Both suspects have been described as Hispanic men in their late 20s, with black hair and brown eyes, 5 foot 8 to 5 foot 10 inches tall and weighing around 185 pounds.

Anyone who has information about the suspects’ whereabouts is asked to call Detective Wallace Tennelle of the LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division at (213) 486-6893.
