(Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms)
HOUSTON The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is offering up to $10,000 ($5,000 for each person) as a reward for any information that could lead to the arrest of a couple wanted in connection with fires that happened during the riots in St. Paul, Minnesota.
According to a news release, Jose Felan, Jr. and his girlfriend, Mena Dyaha Yousif, are accused of setting several businesses on fire during the riots in Minnesota following the death of George Floyd.
A video connecting Felan to the fires went viral, prompting him and Yousif to flee, according to the release.
The decision made by some to terrorize our city through their dangerous and unlawful acts of arson was an affront to our community and those who were peacefully exercising their first amendment rights, said St. Paul police Chief Todd Axtell. Now, more than ever is the time for all of us to work together to hold these offenders accountable and to continue our work together to keep Saint Paul safe for everyone.
The couple is believed to be heading south, and the ATF is asking authorities and people along the I-35 corridor, which runs through Dallas, Austin and San Antonio, to be on the lookout for the pair.
Felan has multiple felony convictions including, burglary, drug offenses and aggravated assault, according to the release.
Anyone with information on the couples whereabouts is asked to contact the ATF by calling 1-888-ATF-TIPS (1-888-283-8477), emailing ATFTips@atf.gov or submitting information via ReportIt.com or the Report It mobile app. When using Report It, select ATF St. Paul Field Division as the reporting agency.
People are asked to provide as much information as possible to help authorities locate the two.
All tips can be submitted anonymously, but to claim a reward, you must give contact information.
A Mexican and a muslim?
That’s an odd couple of white supremacists, Jim.
You beat me in posting that!!!
what a lovely couple.
they are on their way to Mexico or holed up in some Texas shithole getting help.
I wonder if they will be preosecuted. THere is no police in Minneapolis. Is there still a court — judge Roy Bean?
Hey, weren’t they on the Dating Game?
No wait, maybe not.
It was Dragnet (the color ones).
I would say it is the Amish. They call the rest of us all English, they have for centuries been an outcast, and suffered severe racism. They live in extreme poverty..having to go around driving a horse and buggy.
With any luck, her honorable father will kill them both.
Mexicans and Palestinians are quite popular in Antifa... would not be surprised if they are Auntie Faaa.
Can’t you just see a modern version Slim Pickens teamed up with Jack Elam tying up these two and telling them ——
Slim: “Terrorist couple, eh? Here in Texas we don’t like no terrorists. No, sir. Don’t like ya a’tall. We figure if we leave you just your fingertips that’ll be legal enough to identify you for the reward money. Dead or alive. We got hours ahead for this.”
Im sure there will be more information on these two in the Most Wanted segment on tonights Live PD.
Authorities are still searching for a motive.....
You beat me in posting that!!!
In that case, I will post that I did not know the Amish had communities in Texas.
But in skimming the posts I see I was also beaten.
Dead or alive?
They need to make it: Dead or Alive. Let the bounty hunters take care of it of it.
Who knows if the state of Minnesota will prosecute them. But for now, with the ATF involved, they face federal charges. At the minimum they traveled across state line to commit felonies, and now they are wanted for crossing state lines to evade justice. In all this, there must a federal statute for arson.
Shouldn’t that be Jose Felon?
