The Vermont State Police announced today that a reward of up to $5,000 is being offered to anyone who provides information leading to the apprehension of Jayveon Caballero, 29, of Barre, Vt.

Caballero is being sought in connection with the Jan. 22  homicide of 33 year-old Markus Austin. Police have an arrest warrant for Caballero with bail set at $500,000.

On Sunday Jan. 22, around 4:30 a.m., the Montpelier Police Department responded to a shooting at 191 Barre St. in Montpelier, where they found Austin dead outside his residence.  Police determined that Austin was shot once by a male suspect who fled the scene in a vehicle.

Since the shooting, police have made two arrests.

Desiree Cary, 22, who lived with Caballero in Barre, was arrested on Jan. 22 on drug charges.

Reginald Jones, 36, also of Barre, was arrested on Jan. 25 as an accessory after the fact for the homicide. Police said Jones took Caballero to the bus station in White River Junction on the morning of Jan. 22 and bought him a ticket.

VSP encourages anyone with information to contact the nearest Vermont State Police barracks.
