$1M Reward Offered For Information Leading To Arrest Of Dorner

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Sunday announced a $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of triple murder suspect, Christopher Dorner.

“Our dedication to catching this killer remains steadfast. Our confidence that we will bring him to justice is unshaken. This search is not a matter of if. It’s a matter of when and I want Christopher Dorner to know that,” Villaraigosa said.


The collective reward, the largest in local history, was made public during a 1 p.m. news conference at the Los Angeles Police Department Headquarters.

“Yesterday, leaders from throughout the region including leaders from businesses, unions, government, law enforcement and community groups came together to pull resources and protect our core value of public safety,” the mayor said. “Collectively this group led by my office posted a reward of $1 million for information that will lead to Mr. Dorner’s capture.”

A separate reward of $100,000 is being offered by Los Angeles County supervisors Mike Antonovich and Mark Ridley-Thomas.

Antonovich and Ridley-Thomas are expected to introduce a motion during a meeting on Tuesday for the reward for 33-year-old Dorner who continues to elude capture.

Elsewhere in the San Bernardino Mountains, the search for Dorner entered its fourth day with about 25 law enforcement officials converging in Big Bear.

Louisa Hodge, reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, says authorities continued to comb the snow-capped terrain with the assistance of two heat-seeking helicopters.

Officials on Saturday announced the creation of the Joint Information Center (JIC) – a joint task force involving the LAPD and Riverside and Irvine Police departments.

“Our officers will be working around-the-clock. They’ll be using the most advanced technology available. This is an extraordinary, unprecedented effort,” said Chief David Maggard of the Irvine Police Department.

Also on Saturday, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck announced in an exclusive interview with CBS2’s Pat Harvey that the department plans to reopen the disciplinary case that resulted in Dorner’s termination.

Dorner is wanted in connection with the murders of Monica Quan, Keith Lawerence and a Riverside police officer.
