— A caller helped deputies catch Timothy Tuttle, one of the most wanted men in Southwest Florida. But the reward he was hoping for won't be coming. We found out why he's not eligible for the cash.

There will be no reward for Johnny Hooker because he didn't follow the proper procedure. He called the Lee County Sheriff's Office directly, rather than Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers.
