JOINT TERRORISM TASK FORCE - ARSON REWARD OFFERED

MULTI-AGENCY JOINT TERRORISM TASK FORCE REWARD OFFERED IN LATEST ATTACK TARGETING UCLA PROFESSOR & UPDATE TO OUTSTANDING REWARDS FOR SIMILAR ATTACKS CLAIMED BY ANIMAL RIGHTS EXTREMISTS SINCE 2006
A reward of up to $75,000 is being announced by multiple agencies for information leading to the arrest and conviction of person/s responsible for the suspected arson of a vehicle owned by a UCLA professor on March 7, 2009.

A collective sum of $50,000 was recently approved and added to a previously announced reward of $25,000 offered by UCLA following the March 7th attack.

A short time following the incident, animal rights extremists anonymously claimed responsibility for the attack.

Multiple organizations have been authorized to offer reward money in this case, and in connection with a series of attacks where arson and the use of incendiary devices are suspected. In each case, UCLA professors who conduct biomedical research, which may involve the use of animals, appear to have been targeted by animal rights extremists.

Organizations contributing to the rewards are: University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), the FBI, the ATF and the City of Los Angeles.
The contributions represent the investigative partners in this case, including, the UCLA Police Department, the Los Angeles Police Department, the Los Angeles City Fire Department, the FBI and the ATF; all members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force in Los Angeles. The various incidents are being investigated as acts of domestic terrorism.
