Will Chief Moose pick Ludlow trucker Ron Lantz?

It may take a while to decide who will get a piece of the half-million-dollar reward for the capture of the Washington-area sniper suspects, authorities in Rockville, Md., said Tuesday.

But Ron Lantz of Ludlow, acclaimed as a hero for calling 911 at a Maryland truck stop, and 60,000 other tipsters are in the running.

Montgomery County Police Chief Charles Moose, who led the investigation, will head the team that decides who gets the reward.

Mr. Lantz, 61, a 35-year veteran trucker who recently retired, said he was one of the truck drivers who blocked the exit of an Interstate 70 rest stop on Oct. 24.
