A $10,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for slashing nearly 50 tires in West Philadelphia.
Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey on Monday night announced a $5,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the crime.
"We urge anyone with information about this criminal act to come forward and help us put an end to this senseless and hurtful crime," a statement read.
