Daniel Andreas San Diego Bombed Two Buildings in the San Francisco Area 10 Years Ago
Domestic terrorism suspect on FBI’s most wanted terrorist list featured as part of Northern California's fugitive awareness initiative
SAN FRANCISCO: The FBI are still seeking the public’s help for any information leading to the arrest of fugitive Daniel Andreas San Diego, who exploded bombs in Emeryville and Pleasanton.
The FBI has received numerous tips allegedly placing him in different areas of California including Novato, San Rafael, Santa Cruz and also Northampton, Massachusetts.
It's also understood that the fugitive has overseas ties to Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Costa Rica, and Bolivia. If overseas, he may possess documentation allowing him residency in one of these countries, but he may not be fluent in a foreign language.
On August 28, 2003, two bombs exploded approximately one hour apart on the campus of a biotechnology corporation in Emeryville, California. In September that same year, a bomb strapped with nails exploded at a nutritional products corporation in Pleasanton, California.
A federal arrest warrant was issued for San Diego in October 2003. In April 2009, he was added to the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorist List, making him the first domestic terrorist placed on this list.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $250,000 for information leading directly to the arrest and prosecution of San Diego. The reward can be paid confidentially.
San Diego, who was a California resident, was described in October 2003 as a white male with a light complexion, 6’0” tall, 160 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
At the time of his disappearance, San Diego did not eat meat or food containing animal products. The FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) assessed if he has maintained this discipline, people around him may notice that he avoids consuming or wearing anything made with animal products.
Several years of living as a wanted fugitive may have forced San Diego to engage in secretive behavior. The BAU believes this deception may affect other areas of his life, to include being vague or contradictory about his past history, routinely using prepaid cell phones or calling cards, or often changing his e-mail address.
He has training in computer networking, so San Diego may be known by those around him as someone to offer computer-related assistance. He may also be using his English language abilities for teaching/translating, or part of a service industry such as tourism overseas.
He is also known to cook and bake vegan and vegetarian foods and to have an interest in sailing. He may be using these skills as a form of income, specifically for cash to avoid using banks, checks, and credit cards.
THE FBI warn that San Diego should be considered armed and dangerous.
