AND ANYBODY HIDING HIM NEEDS TO GO DOWN TOO.
Bail will be set at $5,000,000, officials said. A reward leading to an arrest has been increased to $144,300.
Crockam, whose street name is "Sav,'' (savage) is still at large and is armed and dangerous, officials said. he's a gangbanger and all his friends with warrants are being brought in for questioning.
They caught him. It's breaking news right now on my television.
Thanks Duchess...i have been watching for this since the moment i woke up!
New Jersey State Police, with the help of an informant, arrested Jahmell W. Crockam, 19, in the early hours of Sunday morning.
A source told News 4 New York that a State Police SWAT team made the arrest in Camden, across the Delaware River from Philadelphia.
State Police call their unit TEAMS, for Tactical Emergency and Mission Specialists. They apparently moved in after Crockam was dropped off at a house in Camden.
News 4 New York has also learned from sources that police now believe that the Bloods gang-- of which the alleged suspect in the murder of a Lakewood cop is believed to have belonged to--has ordered its members to attack law enforcement officers in more assassination attempts.
fuck fuck fuck.
waiting for more info...my cousin's dept. (i know it's not him.)
Two Miami-Dade police officers were shot and killed in a gunfight with suspects as they tried to serve a warrant for a violent fugitive in a Miami home Thursday morning.
One suspect, identified as Johnny Simms, 23, was killed in the gun battle. Another suspect is in custody
The dead officer was identified as Roger Castillo. The name of the dead female officer has not been released. She died during surgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
One suspect also was killed in the gun battle. Another suspect is in custody, investigators said.
Investigators say they're not looking for any other suspects.
"We're asking for the community's prayers,'' said Commander Nancy Perez, who broke down when she announced the news shortly before 12:30 p.m. Thursday.
Details were sketchy, but a shooting erupted between suspects and police at a home in Northwest Seventh Avenue and 69th Street. The officers were serving a warrant for a homicide suspect. It was the first time in decades that two law enforcement officers have been killed in the line of duty in South Florida.
Castillo, a married father of three whose wife also is an officer, died at the scene. The female officer was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital where she underwent surgery. She died around 1 p.m.
Authorities shut down traffic on Interstate-95, as several other suspects reportedly fled the scene. Aerial helicopter shots showed two bodies covered, one under a blue tarp and another under a yellow tarp. Miami Fire Rescue transported two people about 11:20 a.m.
A multi-agency task force was working in the area serving a warrant for the City of Miami. At a County Commission meeting Thursday, Commission Chair Joe Martinez announced that the county had lost one officer and a second had been airlifted to JMH.
Martinez officers were serving a warrant on "career criminals'' when the shooting occurred.
The male officer who died at the scene was identified as Roger Castillo.
The female officer, who died in surgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital, was tentatively identified as Amanda Haworth, the Miami Herald reported.

i am watching the Miami funeral online of two officers, and word just came in SWAT team is at a home in St. Pete Fla. where a US Marshal and two police officers have been shot. this is not over, shots are still being fired.
Tampa police have contributed SWAT members, a tank and an explosives team.
Jesus Christ. :(
i've been watching the entire Miami funeral for the two fallen officers for a few hours now. there are thousands of people attending. my cousin is there, he's been sending me cell phone photos.
Officer Castillo's 3 young sons came to the podium to speak about their Dad. only they started sobbing and couldn't do it.
that's when i lost it. my heart breaks for 4 boys who have lost their parents. their heroes.
The ``last call'' came long after darkness had fallen over a Miami Lakes cemetery on Monday.
A dispatcher announced over the police radio: ``All units stand by for a moment of silence.''
She then called out their names and badge numbers: Amanda Haworth, 2700. Roger Castillo, 1725.
Children and parents, a wife and a partner, siblings, grandparents, friends and fellow cops sobbed, ending the daylong rite of remembrance for the two Miami-Dade detectives who had lost their lives in the line of duty.
ST. PETERSBURG - The two officers killed Monday while serving a warrant on a St. Pete home were identified as 48-year-old Sgt.Tom Baitinger and 39-year-old Jeffrey Yaslowitz (who left 3 little children).

It's sad that the rules put great people in harms way.
Thanks for the updates on these stories LC.
in a 24-hour period, 11 police officers have been shot in the line of duty in the U.S. it's a war like any on foreign soil.
i know you feel the way i do over this Dick. heavy-hearted.
i update this thread far too often.
Dick, i was never told i had to wait for them to shoot first. if a gun came out, i could fire at will.
