Pipe bombs prompt authorities to form task force

December 2, 2013 • State News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Law enforcement agencies from across the state have stepped up efforts to find a suspect who threw two pipe bombs at an Albuquerque probation and parole office last month.

Officials with [auth] New Mexico State Police, the state Department of Corrections, Albuquerque police, the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department and others have formed a task force to generate leads in the case.

Corrections Secretary Gregg Marcantel says the suspect has threatened the law enforcement community and citizens and should be considered dangerous.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

The two explosive devices were found outside the probation and parole office on Nov. 21. The building was evacuated and the Albuquerque bomb squad destroyed the devices.
