Reward offered for information about fires at Jewish centers

August 6, 2019

BOSTON (AP) — The FBI has announced that a reward of up to $20,000 is being offered for information leading to whoever started three fires at two Jewish centers in suburban Boston.

Law enforcement on Tuesday released new surveillance images and video of a possible suspect in the fires in May at Chabad Centers in Arlington and Needham.

Someone set fire to the shingles of the rabbi’s home in Arlington on May 11 and again on May 16. No one was injured in either case.

Also on May 16, about an hour after the Arlington fire, authorities responded to an exterior fire at the Chabad Lubavitch Jewish Center in Needham. The towns are about 10 miles apart.

The FBI says the man in both towns is the same person.
