Juneau Crime Line is offering a cash reward for information leading to the arrest or indictment of the person or people responsible for throwing firecrackers into the hallway of a mulitiresidential building on Meadow Lane in the airport area on May 29 and June 13. About five youths, all about 13 years old, were seen leaving the area on foot and bicycles after the June 13 incident.

Although damage was contained to burn marks on the carpet and smoke in the building, the acts had the potential of causing a dangerous and life-threatening situation. A special reward is being offered.
