ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Federal authorities are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in a case in which several pipe bombs were left in two eastern New Mexico communities.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced the reward Friday.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact the ATF.
Authorities say six pipe bombs were recovered in Roswell and Clovis during a three-month period earlier this year.
All of the pipe-bomb devices were similar, except for one.

The unique device recovered in Roswell was a homemade hand grenade-type device.
Authorities say all of the devices were found intact and unexploded in outdoor areas.

Three were found in Roswell and three were found in Clovis.
