FBI Hunting Hawaii for Top Domestic Terror Suspect


The FBI said Wednesday agents are hunting in Hawaii for the nation’s most wanted domestic terrorism suspect.

The FBI office in San Francisco said the agency received “credible intelligence” that Daniel Andreas San Diego might be on the state’s Big Island. Agents are searching for him in the island’s eastern district of Puna and in the small, eclectic town of Pahoa.

San Diego, 36, is suspected to be an animal rights extremist. He is charged with exploding pipe bombs in front of two San Francisco Bay Area companies with ties to a lab that conducted animal experiments.

San Diego is atop the FBI’s list of most-wanted domestic terrorists, and the agency is offering a $250,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

FBI spokesman Peter Lee declined to comment on the nature of the “credible intelligence” that compelled agents from San Francisco to travel to Hawaii in search of San Diego.
