FBI Washington Field Office Increases Reward for Information on Federal Fugitive to $15,000

The FBI Washington Field Office is offering a reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the arrest of Lamar Jamal Perkins, who is wanted on federal kidnapping charges. This is a $10,000 increase in the reward offered previously.

A federal arrest warrant was issued on March 30, 2021, for Perkins and others in the United States District Court, District of Maryland, after they were charged with conspiracy to commit kidnapping. They are wanted for their alleged involvement in a conspiracy to kidnap an individual from the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in National Harbor, Maryland, on February 3, 2021. It is alleged that the victim was kidnapped at gunpoint, driven to Washington, D.C., beaten, robbed, and threatened.

Lamar Jamal Perkins, a/k/a “Lou,” age 27, of Washington, D.C., is described as a black male, approximately 5’9” tall and 180 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.

He should be considered armed and dangerous.

Please contact the FBI Washington Field Office at (202) 278-2000 with any information regarding these fugitives. Tips can also be submitted to 1-800-CALL-FBI or online at tips.fbi.gov.
