Police reach out to public on three-year anniversary of arson

Police reach out to public on three-year anniversary of arson

Ithaca Police are once again trying to raise awareness of an arson case at the home of Sergeant Bryan Bangs.

It’s been three years since his Dryden home was burned to the ground July 10, 2010.

Bangs was the officer who fatally shot Shawn Greenwood in February of 2010.

A grand jury investigated that shooting, and deemed it to be justified.

There is now a $20,000 reward for anyone with information that leads to an arrest in the case.

Anyone who has a tip in the case is asked to call State Police. That number is 607-347-4440.
