“We have reason to believe the brothers may be hiding out together,” said Major Crimes Captain James Laino. “They may have fled the Richmond area. Our best bet now is to act on tips that may come to us through Crime Stoppers.”

Ward has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to commit robbery.
