$1M Reward for Ex-Los Angeles Officer Prompts Tips

Posted: Updated:

A $1 million reward has prompted numerous tips to authorities seeking a fired Los Angeles police officer suspected of killing three people.

Los Angeles police Lt. Andrew Neiman says well over 600 clues are being investigated as of Monday morning.

The search for former officer Christopher Dorner is continuing in the Big Bear area of the San Bernardino Mountains where his pickup truck was found torched last week, but there's been no sighting of him there.

Jodi Miller, a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, said Monday there are 30 deputies canvasing the Big Bear area and checking on roughly 600 cabins in the manhunt for the 33-year-old.  

Dorner's burned-out truck was found late last week in the mountain resort with weapons and camping gear inside.

Miller said authorities will continue to search the Big Bear area until Dorner is found or there's evidence he's there.

In a related development, the Riverside County District Attorney Paul Zellerbach says Dorner's been charged with murdering a Riverside police officer and special circumstances that bring the death penalty.

Zellerbach says Dorner is also charged with the attempted murder of another Riverside officer and two LAPD officers.

The charges announced Monday do not involve two other people Dorner is suspected of killing in Orange County.  (AP)
