On Monday, the ATF announced it 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 after the death of George Floyd.
The $70,000 total reward is broken down to $5,000 for each of the 14 suspects wanted and is in addition to the previous two rewards that the 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 these individuals is asked to contact the ATF by email or submitting information online. Tipsters can also call 1-888-ATF-TIPS if internet is unavailable.
The ATF says 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 suspect.
The 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.
