    $115,000 reward offered in unsolved 2008 Times Square bombing

    NEW YORK — The FBI and New York Police Department say a reward of up to $115,000 is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the March 2008 bombing at the Times Square military recruitment station.

    No one was injured. But Police Commissioner William Bratton says people had walked past just moments before the device detonated.

    Officials say the explosion may be connected to earlier unsolved bombings at the British and Mexican consulates.

    FBI footage shows the Times Square suspect placing the bomb and riding away on a bike.

    Authorities say the device was built using an ammunition can commonly found on battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge Diego Rodriguez says it's important to solve the case before those responsible "can strike again."
