SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom today announced the availability of three $50,000 awards for information leading to an arrest and conviction for the Tyler Dickson murders in Butte County; Jesus Sanchez in Ontario; and Iran Moreno in Pasadena.

Under California law, law enforcement can ask the governor to issue rewards in certain unsolved cases where they have exhausted all avenues of investigation, to encourage people with information about crimes to manifest. Public assistance is vital for law enforcement, and rewards can encourage the public cooperation needed to apprehend those who have committed serious crimes.
