The Honolulu FBI has received credible intelligence that FBI Most Wanted Terrorist fugitive Daniel Andreas San Diego, 36, may be hiding on the Big Island.

Agents from the Honolulu and San Francisco offices of the FBI are canvassing selected areas, including Pahoa and Puna, looking for information about the fugitive’s whereabouts, according to Tom Simon, special agent with the FBI. San Diego is considered armed and dangerous.

San Diego was indicted in 2003 in connection with the bombing two buildings in California, according to Simon.

“He may or may not actually be on Hawaii Island, but we are taking this lead seriously out of genuine concern for local residents,” Simon said.

Anyone with information should call the FBI’s Honolulu office at 566-4300. There is a reward of up to $250,000 for information leading to his capture.

“A reward of $250,000 is huge by Hawaii standards. We hope that people on the Big Island may like the idea of a quarter million dollars more than they like having an accused bomber hiding in their community,” Simon said.
