FBI Offers Reward Up to $50K for Info on Pipe Bombs Left at RNC and DNC

-

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is seeking information about the identity of the person or persons who placed pipe bombs near the Republican National Committee (RNC) and Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters on Wednesday during the US Capitol siege by pro-Trump extremists.

The FBI announced that it is offering a reward of up to $50,000 “for information leading to the location, arrest, and conviction of the person(s) responsible” for the pipe bombs found in DC on January 6.

According to a statement from the FBI, on Wednesday at around 1 pm, multiple law enforcement agencies received reports of a suspected pipe bomb with wires at the headquarters of RNC located at 310 First Street, Southeast DC, and another report of a pipe bomb at 1:15 pm at the DNC headquarters at 430 South Capitol Street Southeast #3 in DC.

The FBI shared a photo on Twitter of a person wearing a face mask, gray hoodie, black pants and black gloves, and holding a large dark-colored item in one hand.

Anyone who has information regarding these two incidents is asked to contact the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-225-5324 or submit tips at fbi.gov/USCapitol. Alternatively, they can contact their local FBI office or the nearest American Embassy or Consulate.
