Higher rewards from NC gov may soon be possible

There soon could be more financial inducements at the disposal of North Carolina's governor to help capture fugitives and solve serious crimes.
    
The General Assembly has given final approval to a bill to increase the maximum reward money a governor could give to someone who catches a notorious suspect or provides information leading to someone's arrest and conviction.
    
State law currently allows the governor to offer rewards of up to $10,000. The bill approved Monday night and heading to Gov. Pat McCrory's desk raises the amount to $100,000.
    
Sen. Shirley Randleman told the Senate that law enforcement officials asked for the higher maximum reward, which has not changed since the 1960s.
