Law enforcement officers from across New Mexico have formed a task force aimed at tracking down and capturing the mysterious bomber who threw two potentially deadly pipe bombs near UNM on Nov. 21.
It was broad daylight, a busy day at the state Probation & Parole office eon Monte Vista. Security camera images show a man on a high speed motorcycle throwing two objects and zipping away. They turned out to be pipebombs and the Albuquerque Police Bomb Squad destroyed them before they could explode. Now federal, state and local police have a message for that bomber and anybody who’s helping to hide him.
“It’s not acceptable,” said state Corrections Secretary Gregg Marcantel, whose department includes Parole & Probation. “There is a shelf life on your freedom at this point. We’re coming and we’re not going to tolerate it!”
