A homeless man in San Francisco will actually receive the $100,000 reward for helping the police catch two prisoners who had escaped.
The two prisoners escaped from Orange County Jail six days earlier to being caught and triggered a massive search.
Matthew Hay-Chapman saw their pictures on the news and then spotted them driving a stolen van.
When the car was located near a market in San Francisco, Hay-Chapman then contacted the local police.
The total prize offered by the police reached $150 thousand but was divided with four people. Hay-Chapman himself got the largest portion.
According to police officials, two employees of Target Corporation would receive prizes of $15 thousand each since they contacted the police after seeing suspicious movements of the two men.
A man of Los Angeles, California, whose car was stolen by the detainees, would receive a payment of $20 thousand.
The two fugitives, Hossein Nayeri and Jonathan Tieu, were arrested near the market. The third detainee, Bac Duong, surrendered the day before.
