BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The U.S. Marshals Service is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Paul Ceglia (SEHG’-lee-uh).

Ceglia is the New York man accused of faking an ownership stake in Facebook to justify a multibillion-dollar lawsuit against its founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Authorities have been looking for him since early March when they say he jumped bail by slicing off an electronic monitoring device and creating a crude contraption to make it seem as though he was moving around inside his home in the western New York village of Wellsville.

His wife and two sons are also missing.

In announcing the reward Wednesday, the Marshals Service says Ceglia may have been at a Wegmans store in Corning on March 6 to buy a car from an individual.
