Big-time reward for Waldo Canyon leads

Posted By on Thu, Sep 20, 2012 at 4:55 PM

As we reported last week, the agencies that are investigating the cause of Waldo Canyon Fire need your help.

While the authorities are keeping what they know or don't know about the fire's cause close to the vest, they've been pretty clear that they could definitely use more info.

"The thing we really need is information from someone who knows specifically what happened and how the fire started," Springs Police Lt. Adrian Vasquez told a roomful of reporters and TV cameras at the Police Operations Center this afternoon.

Which brings us to today's press release from the Colorado Springs Police. It appears that an anonymous donor has stepped up and offered a $100,000 reward for anyone who "provides information that leads to the identification and arrest {if applicable} of the person{s} responsible for causing the Waldo Canyon Fire."

You'd think that just wanting to help solve a possible crime that destroyed hundreds of homes and claimed two lives would be enough motivation. But since it hasn't been enough so far, perhaps this cash will help.

The full press release:


An anonymous donor has contacted the Colorado Springs Police Department to graciously offer a $100,000 reward.

While it is important to note that investigators have yet to determine if the fire was intentional or accidental, this reward is for anyone who provides information that leads to the identification and arrest {if applicable} of the person{s} responsible for causing the Waldo Canyon Fire.

Crime Stoppers will be overseeing the monies.

The Colorado Springs Police Department is imploring anyone having suspect information to please call 719.385.2222. This is the only number to call to receive a reward up to $100,000. You will be required to leave your name and contact number.

An investigator will follow-up with each person who leaves a message.

Special Note: Please do NOT confuse this with a reward for suspect information as it relates to evacuees becoming victims of home and vehicle burglaries. This is a separate reward.
