Rebecca Jeanette Rubin, one of the FBI’s most sought after fugitives, turned herself in to authorities today at the U.S. Canadian border. She was a member of the Earth Liberation Front (ELF) terrorist group who went on a rampage of arson and destruction over the past 2 decades resulting in up to $42 million in damages. I’m glad we finally got this creep of the streets.

International fugitive and alleged eco-terrorist Rebecca Jeanette Rubin turned herself in on the U.S.-Canada border after a decade on the run, in what authorities are calling the largest eco-terrorism case in U.S. history.

Rubin was charged with being part of a conspiracy with 12 other people involving 20 acts of arson throughout five Western states in a five-year period, according to the FBI.

The acts were committed by self-proclaimed members of the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front. Specifically, Rubin is accused of being part of a cell known as the Family, which operated out of Eugene, Oregon.

“According to the indictment, the group sought to influence and affect the conduct of government, private business, and the civilian population through force, violence, sabotage, mass destruction, intimidation, and coercion, and to retaliate against government and private businesses by similar means,” according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The LA Times reported that the Family disbanded in 2001, but federal investigators found an informant and broke the case in 2005. The Family’s members reportedly took oaths of secrecy and commitment to one another.

In their attacks, the group used firebombs and conducted coordinated attacks on targets, including a Vail, Colorado ski resort, an Oregon SUV dealership, and federal wild horse corrals in Oregon and California.

    Funny isn’t it. She turns herself in just as the green/black/ah half black Eco-weiner is re-elected. Must be a deal in there somewhere.

    Erkel Holder will recommend regret counselling by the firm of Ayers and Dohrn.
