FBI Launches Nationwide manhunt for Earl Albert Moore, 65 Suspect in attempted Colorado Mall bombing

He was originally sentenced to 18 years in federal prison, but had his sentence reduced in 2008.

Earl Albert Moore, 65, served a federal prison sentence for bank robbery and was released just seven days before authorities believe he left a poorly crafted bomb in a stairwell in Jefferson County’s Southwest Plaza Mall.

Authorities found a small fire, two propane tanks and a crude pipe bomb on Wednesday, the anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre, which prompted mass evacuations and put a community on edge.

Records from the Federal Bureau of Prisons show Moore was released from custody April 13 and remained on supervised parole at the time of the alleged bomb attempt.

Court records show he robbed a West Virginia bank of $2,546, assaulted a bank employee and used a deadly weapon in the course of the 2005 robbery

The FBI Denver Joint Terrorism Task Force has launched a nationwide manhunt for Moore, who they consider armed and dangerous.

The task force and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department asked the public to call 911 if they see Moore and report information regarding his whereabouts to the Jeffco Tip Line at 303-271-5615 if they have information regarding his whereabouts.
