SPRING VALLEY - Donors have increased the reward offered for information leading to an arrest in the death of volunteer firefighter Justin Speights to $20,000.

Speights, 20, died from stab wounds about two weeks ago. Investigators say he was trying to break up a fight at a New Year's Eve party in Crawford.

Members of his fire company at the Silver Lake Fire Department donated an additional $10,000.

It doubles the reward initially offered by the New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association.

Sources tell News 12 that police may be close to making an arrest in the case. Last week, an apartment on Prospect Street in Spring Valley was raided in connection with the killing. Sources say that raid was one of two carried out in Spring Valley by state and local police.

Anyone with information on the stabbing is asked to call New York State Police at 845-344-5300.
