$10,000 Reward Offered For Info in 2016 Clayton Murder


The Town of Clayton and State of North Carolina are offering a $10,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest in the 2016 murder of a Clayton man. 

Around 1 a.m. Saturday, July 2, 2016, 24-year-old Garrett Howard "Montana Mack" Bridges of 68 Herndon Court was shot and killed after two suspects entered his home in the Mitchiner Hills neighborhood.

Police believe the victim knew his killers, however, we do not have any more information to release on the possible suspects or what led up to the shooting.

On May 18, 2018, Gov. Roy Cooper issued a proclamation offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Bridges' murderer or murderers. That comes in addition to the $5,000 reward offered by Clayton Police and brings the total incentive to $10,000.

Town of Clayton Police detectives continue to work hand in hand with the State Bureau of Investigation on leads and, as always, we’re asking for the public’s help to solve this crime.

If you saw anything in the morning hours of Saturday, July 2 – or know anything about what happened or who might have been involved – call Clayton Police at 919-553-4611 or the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation at 919-662-4500. You may also call Clayton Police Detective J.P. Linder at 919-553-0158.

You can remain anonymous, calls are not traced, and you could be eligible for that $10,000 reward.
