FBI investigation into suspected DC tube bombs reveals new details; the reward increased to $ 100G

State authorities now offers a reward of up to $ 100,000 for information that leads investigators to the person they believe placed suspected pipe bomber at the headquarters of the Republican and Democratic National Committees in Washington, DC, officials announced on Friday.

The FBI has released new photos and information about the suspected explosives and says in a tweet shared Friday morning that investigators believe that the pipe bombs were placed between 19:30 and 20:30 on 5 January. The agency also shared new images showing parts of the device, such as a piece of what appears to be a timer and a map that provides more specific locations for each device.

Officials said the suspect was wearing a backpack and wearing a face mask, a gray hoodie and Nike Air Max Speed ‚Äč‚ÄčTurk sneakers that were yellow, black and gray.


The Washington Post received surveillance film showing the suspect walking in DC’s Rumsey Court at 20:13 and then, 2 minutes later, walk through an alley while carrying his backpack. The person then returns to Rumsey Court at 20:16 before passing through the area in the opposite direction at 20:17

US Capitol Police and agents from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) were called around noon. 12.45 on January 6 to the Republican National Committee (RNC) office for a report on a pipe boom found outside.


A new call came in about 30 minutes later, while authorities were still investigating the RNC scene after a second similar unit was discovered at DNC’s headquarters just a few blocks away.
