A California camp ranger who was carjacked by fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner is seeking the $1.2 million reward for Dorner’s capture, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Dorner, accused of killing four people and threatening the lives of several dozen more, died following a standoff with police near Big Bear, Calif., when the cabin in which he was barricaded burned down with him inside on Feb. 12.
During Dorner’s crime spree, he carjacked camp ranger Rick Heltebrake’s truck.
“I saw some movement in the trees. and it was Christopher Dorner,” Heltebrake told ABC News after the incident. “And he came out onto the road, out of the snow. And he was dressed in all camouflage and had a big assault, sniper-type rifle. And he had a vest on, like a ballistics vest.
