LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Authorities still are searching for a person of interest in the explosions outside two Las Cruces churches three months ago.

Two small bombs detonated outside Calvary Baptist Church and Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church about 20 minutes apart on Aug. 2.

The churches are located about 3 miles apart and both had some minor property damage.

There were no injuries, but the incidents spurred heightened security at churches throughout Las Cruces.

No suspects have been apprehended.

At a news conference Monday, FBI spokesman Robert Wright says the agency still is looking for a person of interest seen on surveillance video around the time one of the bombs went off at Calvary Baptist.

The FBI is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
