A decade-long search for a Canadian woman wanted by the FBI for her alleged involvement in one of the U.S.'s largest eco-terrorism cases has ended.
Rebecca Rubin, 39, turned herself to FBI agents at the Canada-U.S. border in Blaine, Wash. on Thursday, reported CBC News. The North Vancouver woman was wanted on arson and conspiracy charges connected a 1998 firebombing of a Colorado ski resort and other incidents of arson.
Rubin's surrender was "pre-arranged" with her lawyer, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Peifer.
"We knew of course she is a Canadian citizen and likely was in Canada during that time," Peifer told Boise State public radio.
The Earth Liberation Front, a radical underground activist group Rubin allegedly is connected to, claimed responsibility over the Colorado attack which caused over $12 million in damage. According to the group, the resort had plans to expand into the habitat of the lynx.
According to Fox News, the group had warned: "We will be back if this greedy corporation continues to trespass into wild and unroaded areas."
Since 2008, the FBI has been offering a $50,000 reward for any tips or information leading up to Rubin's arrest.
