On Feb. 10, 2013, the manhunt for ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner entered its fourth day. The hunt continues to be focused on the mountain area of Big Bear, Calif., where police confiscated two long-range rifles with silencers, cold-weather survival gear, night vision goggles and a gas mask, after his truck allegedly suffered a broken axle according to CBS News.
A task force has now been formed in the search which LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith says includes Los Angeles law enforcement, the FBI and U.S. Marshalls, Irvine and Riverside police departments and other law enforcement agencies in the areas where the suspect may travel.
We will look under every rock, around every corner, we will search mountain tops for him," Riverside Police Assistant Chief Chris Vicino said Saturday during a press conference ABC News reported.
Several search warrants have been issued in the case, including one on Friday to a La Palma home owned by Dorner's mother's, where police retrieved five electronic items and 10 bags of evidence.
Another search warrant served at a Bueno Park storage unit Friday night, but Irvine police refused to name the renter of the unit or what was recovered according to CBS News. However, ABC News reported that Ara Aghanjanian, the storage facility owner, says that "I believe a laptop and maybe a few boxes" were in the unit possibly owned by a Dorner relative.
On Monday, in National City, Dorner was caught on surveillance cameras placing several items in a dumpster behind the facility.
False alarm sightings were prompting police to consider prosecution of hoax calls after he was allegedly seen on an Amtrak train in downtown Los Angeles, as well as his false sighting on Friday at the Twin Towers Jail, where it is alleged his ex-wife April Carter works.
As of Sunday morning, the Christopher Jordan Dorner manhunt continues without success, and the LAPD Police Chief Charlie Beck has said he will reopen the investigation into Dorner's firing. However, he made it clear that he is not giving in to a murderer's demand; he is remaining committed to his own commitment to eradicate any racial injustice with the Los Angeles Police Department.
