Authorities offer reward to find killers of border agent Brian Terry

PHOENIX — U.S. authorities are offering up to $250,000 for information
leading to the capture of two suspects wanted in connection with the 2010
killing of a Border Patrol agent.

Agent Brian Terry was killed in a shootout with criminals who authorities say
sneaked into the U.S. to rob marijuana smugglers near the Arizona-Mexico border.

Three of the five suspects have been captured, while two remain at large. One
was sentenced in February to 30 years in federal prison.

Authorities are seeking Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes and Jesus Rosario
Favela-Astorga.

The case brought to light the government’s botched Fast and Furious operation
in which U.S. authorities tracking guns allowed criminals to buy them for
smugglers. But agents lost track of many of the weapons. Two were found at the
scene of Terry’s killing.
