KENOSHA — The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Milwaukee Field Office is now offering a $5,000 reward for the positive identification of suspects connected to a series of arson investigations in Kenosha.

ATF said they were searching for seven people involved in the torching of businesses between Aug. 23 and Aug. 25.

People with information regarding the identity and location of the suspects are asked to contact ATF at 1-888-ATF-TIPS (283-8477), ATFTips@atf.gov, or submit an anonymous tip through the “ReportIt” app. ATF asks that when reporting, you should include as many details as possible and contact information for potential follow up if a reward is sought.

“With remarkable speed, the ATF’s National Response Team has already processed the fire scenes and isolated images of individuals who may have important information,” said United States Attorney Matthew D. Krueger. “Now we need the public’s help in reviewing these images. The U.S. Attorney’s Office, with the ATF and our state and local partners, will continue working to hold accountable anyone responsible for the arsons that devastated Kenosha.”
