FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOX) – The feds report they are getting some leads from a reward offered to help solve a rash of arson the night the Ferguson grand jury decision was announced.
With more than 20 fires set that night, including one at the Flood Christian Church in Ferguson, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms reports it has received several videos from businesses in the area and via the tips line.
“And all of that is very beneficial,” says John Ham, spokesman with ATF.
“Even if it’s just word of mouth, that somebody has started one of these fires, or was associated with one of these fires in any way, that’s information that we would be interested in having,” he says.
The reward for information leading to an arrest is $10,000.
The number to call with tips is 1-888-ATF-FIRE.
