CO Police Would Like To Chat With Robert Burke
If you see 54-year old
Robert Burke, you might want to let him know the feds are looking
for him -- but then again, you might also want to keep your
Police say the former employee of Serco Group in Grand Junction,
CO is a serial bomber -- planting five explosive devices at the
homes of his one-time co-workers and an FAA employee. Three of
those bombs went off, causing minor damage but no injuries.
CNN reports Grand Junction police spokeswoman Linda Bowman said
the bombs were similar to those found in other states -- but she
didn't give any details, other than to say "there is a great deal
of probable cause to believe Mr. Burke is a primary suspect."
The case has been turned over to federal agents with the Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Serco runs air traffic control towers at three airports,
including one in Grand Junction. Burke was fired from the company
less than two years ago and, while he'd apparently made some veiled
e-mail threats... there was no specific indication that he might
start setting off explosives.
Discovery of the bombs on Friday forced the evacuation of the
control tower at Grand Junction. The FAA in Denver took over tower
duties, and no flights were disrupted.
Burke is still at large. Authorities think he's driving a maroon
1999 Chevy Astro minivan, and may be calling himself Robert L.
