FBI Increases 'No Mail-No Rail' Reward

SENECA NATION – The FBI has announced that it is doubling the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for laying railroad ties across the railroad tracks on the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation.

The reward is now $20,000.

On July 5 an Amtrak passenger train struck a pair of railroad ties that were intentionally laid across the CSX railroad tracks about 200 yards from the Cattaraugus Creek railroad bridge.

No one was injured, but the incident provoked Federal Authorities to step in, as it is believed to be in relation to a new Federal law called the PACT Act, which requires companies providing mail order cigarettes to pay state and local sales tax.

Signs around the Reservation declare, ‘No Mail-No Rail’.
