Monroe County Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward for information that leads to the arrest of fugitive Richard Aubrey Palmer (aka Richard John Apostle).

Authorities provided the following account on Palmer:

In March, Palmer was arrested for allegedly having a firearm with an obliterated serial number. Palmer was released after posting. Meanwhile, a search warrant was obtained and after a subsequent search it was discovered that Palmer had provided false information the night of his arrest.

After learning of his true identity, it was further discovered that Palmer was a felon, not allowed to possess a firearm. New charges have been filed and an arrest warrant has been issued. Palmer provided an address in Timothy Lake, East Stroudsburg; however, it is unknown if he is still in the area.
