ATF increases reward to $20K for info leading to arrest of St. Paul arson suspects
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is now offering $20,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of a man and woman wanted in connection with several St. Paul business fires during recent unrest in the Twin Cities.
Jose Felan, Jr., described as being a felon with multiple convictions, was captured on video setting fires at numerous St. Paul locations, including Gordon Parks High School.
The ATF reports Mena Dyaha Yousif, Felan's girlfriend and accomplice, is believed to be helping Felan evade law enforcement officials.
"These two have evaded law enforcement for a couple weeks now and we are hoping the increased reward will encourage those who know these individuals' whereabouts to come forward," ATF Special Agent in Charge William Henderson, of the St. Paul division, said in a statement.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Felan and Yousif is asked to call the U.S. Marshals Service at 1-877-926-8332 or submit information online.
