As no arrests have been made yet, investigators urge the public to remain vigilant and security conscious and to continue to provide any potentially useful information, even if it seems unimportant or if they think someone else has already filed a similar report or the information does not completely fit with previously reported information or suspect description.

Given the nature of these crimes, investigators believe additional victims may exist. Investigators are asking people who live or travel in the affected areas to inspect their vehicles for obvious bullet holes

A reward of $102,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction. Information can discreetly be provided by calling 1-800-SPEAK UP (1-800-773-2587) or 248-624-6114.
