FBI raises reward for information on Capitol Hill pipe bomber to $500,000

The FBI's Washington, DC field office, along with the district's Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) division and the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) have raised the reward for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for the pipe bombs placed near the RNC and DNC headquarters the night before January 6, 2021, from $100,000 to $500,000.

The FBI Washington Office of Public Affairs stated that the suspect, who was seen in surveillance footage placing bombs outside of the Capitol Hill offices on the evening of January 5, has yet to be identified nearly two years later. 

"Two years into the investigation, identifying the perpetrator of this attempted attack remains a priority for the FBI, ATF, MPD, and the US Capitol Police," the statement reads.
