TIMES SQUARE NYC MARCH 6th, 2008: The feds and the NYPD have offered a $65,000 reward for information leading to the capture and conviction of the bicycle bomber who attacked the Times Square military recruiting center in 2008. In addition to the reward offer, authorities released never-before-seen footage of the bomber taken from surveillance video of the March 6, 2008, attack.
Images also show the remains of the homemade explosive device, which was built using a military ammunition can, partly filled with black powder and detonated with a fuse.
Federal authorities announced today a new push to track down the man or woman who used a bicycle for their getaway when they tried to blow up a military recruiting station in New York’s Times Square five years ago, fearing the suspect may be a serial bike bomber. The FBI said they believe the March 6, 2008 blast at the Armed Forces Career Center is likely linked to two earlier blasts at the consulates of foreign nations in New York — the U.K.’s in 2005 and Mexico’s in 2007.
The investigation is being counducted by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force in Manhattan, which is composed of FBI agents, NYPD detectives, and members of more than 50 local, state, and federal agencies. The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force is being assisted by prosecutors from the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. The FBI and the NYPD will be using the hash tag #BikeBomber to disseminate information about the attacks and to solicit information. The photos and video are also being displayed on digital billboards throughout the northeast, including in Times Square.
