SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - The FBI says that one of the country's most wanted domestic terror suspects may be hiding in the Northampton area.
The FBI held a news conference in Springfield to make the annoucement about Daniel Andreas San Diego , 33, who the Bureau says has ties to animal rights extremist groups.
There is a reward of up to $250,000 for information leading to his arrest.
The FBI decided to hold the news conference after they received a tip from a viewer of the program "America's Most Wanted" that San Diego may be hiding out in the Northampton area.
San Diego is wanted for his alleged involvement in two 2003 incidents in the San Francisco area. In the first incident, on August 28, 2003, two bombs exploded on the campus of a biotechnology corporation in Emeryville, California. The second incident happened on September 26, 2003, when a bomb strapped with nails exploded at a nutritional products company in Pleasanton, California.
In 2004, San Diego was indicted in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, but has since disappeared.
San Diego, who should be considered armed and dangerous, is described as a 6' white man weighing about 160 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes and has tattoos, which may have been altered. The FBI describes the known tattoos as a round image of burning hillsides in the center of his chest, with the words "It only takes a spark," in a semicircle below. He also has burning and collapsing buildings on his back and the sides of his abdomen. On his lower back, he has a tattoo of a road with a single, leafless tree rising from it. Because of these unique tattoos, he may be reluctant to remove his shirt, even on occasions when this is the norm.
The FBI says that he used to work as a computer networking specialist, and may be working in a field that requires assistance with computers. He may also be working preparing or baking vegan foods, as that was something he was known to do as well.
San Diego is also known by the aliases Andreas San Diego, D. Andreas San Diego, or simply "Andreas".
