Reward Offered in Salem/Dallas Pipe Bomb CaseSalem-News.com
Police are hoping to hear from people who witnessed the explosive device on Lancaster when it hit the roadway.
(SALEM) - Investigators in Salem are still trying to locate the fourth victim in the series of pipe bombs found last Thursday.
Examination of the video from Roth's Supermarket have allowed investigators to determine approximately when the bomb appeared on the roadway in front of the store, although they say they were not able to determine what vehicle it came from.
Salem Police Lt. Bill Kohlmeyer says they hoping to hear from anyone who was driving on Lancaster Drive at Center St last Thursday between 10:45 AM and 11:15 AM, that may have seen the device. If you did, please contact investigators.
"We are also asking anyone who was driving through that area during that time frame to thoroughly inspect their vehicle for loose wires."
Kohlmeyer says they aren't sure if the bomb moved after first hitting the street,
"Although the bomb was first seen in right northbound lane, just north of Center St., it could have also come from a southbound vehicle and then rolled to where we first see it."
A third victim was located Friday evening after a South Salem resident found loose wires on their her car. Investigators determined that the wires did indeed come from one of the bombs.
The Salem Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are offering a $5,000 reward in the case. The reward is offered for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for these bombs.
"We are also suggesting people continue to check their vehicles for loose wires and or additional devices. This can be done by simply glancing under the vehicle before driving. If only wires are found people should call the Police Department business line at 503-588-6123."
If an actual device is found they should call 911.
Although the lead agencies in this case are the Salem Police Department and ATF, the task force includes the Oregon State Police, The Marion County Sheriff's Office the Dallas Police Department and the FBI.
Anyone with investigative information is asked to call the hot line at 1-888-ATF-Bomb (1-888-283-2662) or Det Jeff Staples 503-588-6050 ext 7152.
