'Never before seen' video out in '08 NY bombing

Posted:

By CNN Staff

The FBI and New York police released new surveillance video of the unsolved 2008 bombing of a Times Square army recruiting center, the bureau said Tuesday.

The bureau said it released a "never-before-seen video of the suspect(s) and a picture of the explosive device."

"The suspect(s) may be connected to two other unsolved bombings in New York City---one at the British Consulate in 2005 and the other at the Mexican Consulate in 2007," the FBI said.

A reward of up to $65,000 was posted for information leading to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the suspect or suspects in the bombing -- in which no one was injured.

Five years ago, police released a photo of a suspect, an image extracted from surveillance footage. It shows an individual riding a bicycle away from the scene shortly after the explosion. Police also distributed a second photo showing a metallic blue bicycle that was found nearby.

New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelley said in 2008 that there is a "possibility" the three incidents are connected.

"The times are very similar," he said at the time. "All three incidents took place with an individual on a bike, leaving a bomb. So, that's a possibility. We can't say with certainty that that's the case, but that's one of our investigative premises."
