PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - A $10,000 reward is now on the line for anyone with information regarding the arson of three Pittsburgh police cruisers.
Early on Wednesday morning, security footage at the police training building captured two suspects. The three cruisers then burned up and were considered a total loss.
"It's clear from this investigation that these perpetrators of this crime knew exactly what they were doing. It was a planned event. It was premeditated and well planned," Richard Ford said, a Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Major Crimes Commander.
The Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms as well as the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police is offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the two individuals.
"These were three clearly marked Pittsburgh police vehicles were parked in the lot adjacent to the academy. Therefore, we are working jointly with the ATF in this investigation to identify and charge the individuals responsible for this cowardly act," Ford said. "We view that as an attack on the Pittsburgh Bureau police."
Anyone with information can contact the ATF at 1-888-283-8477 or the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police at 412-323-7800.
