ATF Offers $70,000 to Solve Twin Cities Arson Cases

MINNEAPOLIS — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a total of $70,000 for information that leads to the identification and apprehension of a number of arson suspects wanted in connection with several Twin Cities locations that were set ablaze during recent unrest.

The $70,000 total reward is broken down to $5,000 for each of the 14 suspects sought in this release (pictures below) and is in addition to the previous two rewards that ATF has issued in relation to the recent unrest.

“We have methodically worked each of the fire scenes, collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, and reviewing video footage to help us solve these arson cases,” said Special Agent in Charge William Henderson, of the St. Paul Field Division. “We’ve narrowed in on particular individuals who we suspect started one or more fires throughout the Twin Cities. We would appreciate any assistance the public is willing to provide in order to bring these investigations to a successful conclusion.”

Anyone with information on the identification and/or whereabouts of any of these individuals is asked to contact ATF. The preferred method for reporting information is by emailing ATFTips@atf.gov or submitting information via www.ReportIt.com or the Report It mobile app, available on Google Play or Apple Apps Store. When using Report It, select “ATF – St. Paul Field Division” as the reporting agency. Provide the ATF ID number of the suspect and as much information as you can relating to the whereabouts of the individual of whom you are reporting. Tipsters can also call 1-888-ATF-TIPS (1-888-283-8477) if internet access is unavailable.

Information can be submitted anonymously, but if a reward is sought, be sure to include contact information into the report before submitting a tip. Information eligible for reward must lead to the successful identification, arrest and conviction of the individual.

ATF is working with the Minneapolis Police Department, Minneapolis Fire Department, St. Paul Police Department, St. Paul Fire Department, Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office, Minnesota State Fire Marshal Division, Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, U.S. Marshal Service and District of Minnesota U.S. Attorney’s Office.
