$5,000 RE­WARD OF­FERED IN HUNT FOR MAILBOX BOMBER

National Post (National Edition) - - CANADA - Post­media News

A $5,000 re­ward is be­ing of­fered to catch the sus­pect who put an ex­plo­sive de­vice in a road­side mailbox six months ago in scenic Sen­neville, a well-to-do sub­urb of Mon­treal. A 68-year-old woman suf­fered mi­nor in­juries on June 6 when a home­made de­vice ex­ploded around 7:10 p.m. while she was re­triev­ing a pack­age from her mailbox. Sun Youth Or­ga­ni­za­tion, a com­mu­nity group in Mon­treal, has posted the re­ward money, which it re­ceived from an anony­mous donor. It will go to any­one who can pro­vide in­for­ma­tion that will help po­lice iden­tify and lo­cate the sus­pect. The Mon­treal ar­son squad is in­ves­ti­gat­ing. News of the road­side bomb­ing left lo­cals res­i­dents in the small town of 900 in dis­be­lief, in­clud­ing Sen­neville Mayor Julie Brise­bois. “I’m shocked as ev­ery­body,” Brise­bois told the West Is­land Gazette in June.
