A Houston County man received a reward for turning in a man who pleaded guilty to four arson cases.
Bani Velazquez Ortiz just received a hefty reward.
The Warner Robins Fire Department awarded him $3,500 for information that lead to an arrest in an arson investigation.
"Earlier in 2010, throughout the year, we had 8 or 9 calls in an area on Tabor Drive, and all the fires appeared to be arsons," said Lieutenant Danny Williams. "We had no leads until a man stepped forward."
Ortiz doesn't speak English, but that didn't stop him from calling in a tip.
Through a translator he told us why he made the call.
"He saw when the crime was committed. He knew it was wrong and life could be in danger so that's why he decided to make the phone call," said Ortiz.
Williams says the tip helped lead them to an arrest.
