FBI Releases Better Sketch of The Man They Believe is Responsible For Bombing Islamic Centers

By SOP newswire2

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- By tying one disturbance at a local mosque to a May pipe bombing, the FBI has a better sketch of the man they believe is responsible for both.

The pipe bomb detonated May 10 at the Islamic Center of Northeast Florida, causing minimal damage.

The explosion sent debris flying more than 100 feet away, the FBI said. Other evidence, beyond a gas can, was found at the scene as well, but officials did not elaborate. They said they do not remember a similar event in the area`s recent history.

The FBI now believes that the bomber is the same man who created a disturbance at the mosque April 4. Worshippers at the mosque escorted a man off their property after he started banging on the doors during the service, shouting at them to stop their "blasphemy."

The suspect is a white male, between 30-50, and about 5`6". The FBI also said the suspect may be driving an early-90s Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera. ...

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the responsible party, according to CAIR volunteer Muhammad Mansoori.

Anyone with any information is asked to call our partner First Coast Crime Stoppers at 866-845-TIPS (8477). You will remain anonymous and could receive a cash reward if your information leads to an arrest. (More)
