ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A reward of more than $7,500 is being offered for information leading to an arrest in connection with a vandalism spree that left 87 private airplanes with slashed tires at Anchorage’s Merrill Field airport.

Anchorage police said Thursday that the Crime Stoppers program has teamed up with the Alaskan Aviation Safety Foundation to offer the $7,631 reward.

Police say they continue to investigate the vandalism they believe occurred between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. on June 2.

There have been no arrests or suspects identified by police or the FBI, which is assisting in the investigation.

Earlier this month, police released grainy surveillance images showing what they called a person of interest. The four images show a darkly-dressed figure with a backpack, standing or walking near airplanes.
