HILLSBOROUGH, NC (WECT) -

Governor Pat McCrory announced Wednesday that the state is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the firebombing that occurred at the Orange County Republican Headquarters.
 
"The firebombing of a local political headquarters was clearly an act of intimidation and I'm going to do everything I can to find the individual or individuals who committed this assault on our democracy," said Governor McCrory. "I remain committed to using every resource as governor to assist local authorities in this investigation."
 
The incident was first reported on Sunday, Oct. 16 around 9 a.m. The building, located at 347 Ja-Max Drive, was hit with graffiti and “flammable material” in a bottle was thrown through a window starting a fire inside, according to Hillsborough police. The fire caused significant damage before extinguishing itself.

Anyone having information concerning this case should contact the State Bureau of Investigation at (919) 662-4500.
