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.READ MORE: See Who Won During The Golden Globe Awards
