Camp Ranger Who Provided Dorner Tip Files Lawsuit For $1 Million Reward

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A camp ranger whose truck was taken by Christopher Dorner has filed a lawsuit for the $1 million reward offered for information leading to the capture of the rogue ex-cop.

Rick Heltebrake filed the breach-of-contract suit Monday claiming his call to authorities after Dorner fled in the truck Feb. 12 directly led police to Dorner’s hideout in a mountain cabin. Dorner is believed to have committed suicide after killing four others during a rampage and manhunt.

The suit names the city of Los Angeles, Riverside County and others who contributed to the reward as defendants.

The LAPD has said three former judges will decide whether anyone can lay claim to the reward and how it would be distributed.

A couple tied up by Dorner and several others have also submitted claims.
