Authorities in Los Angeles have offered a $1 million reward for information leading to the capture of a fired LA police officer sought in connection with a series of killings and threats against his former colleagues and their families.
The reward was announced even as investigators continued to comb the snowy mountains around Big Bear Lake, where Christopher Dorner’s burned out truck was found on Feb. 7, and hundreds of officers patrolled the neighborhoods where people live who were threatened by Dorner in an online screed.
Every day that Dorner is loose, said LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, is another day when the likelihood of an attack on police officers or their families increases.
“We are asking the public, ‘Please help us to protect you,’ ” Beck said at a news conference. “Please help us to find Dorner before he is able to kill again.”
