Austin Police, FBI, ATF to increase reward for package bomb information


AUSTIN, Texas (KEYE) - The Austin Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are expected to announce an increase in the reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or people behind three package bomb explosions this month.

Currently, the reward sits at $65,000. Last week, APD Chief Brian Manley announced a $50,000 reward in addition to the $15,000 reward being offered by Gov. Greg Abbott's office.

Two people have been killed and two others were injured.

Anthony Stephan House, 39, was killed when one of the devices exploded at his home in northeast Austin March 2.

Draylen Mason, 17, was killed March 12 after a package bomb found outside his home in east Austin was brought inside. The explosion also injured his mother.

Another package explosion in southeast Austin on the same day injured a 75-year-old woman.
