Police have released these pictures of an ex-policeman wanted for three murders in California. Suspect Christopher Dorner was captured on surveillance footage at an Orange County hotel on January 28. The fugitive is being hunted in areas including the San Bernardino mountains - where heavy snow has hampered the operation. Police believe he's heavily armed and dangerous. SOUNDBITE: SAN BERNARDINO COUNTY SPOKESPERSON CINDY BACHMANN SAYING (English): "Well, the danger is that he could be out there and they have to be constantly aware. Officer safety is their priority. They have to move slowly and use the training and tactics that they have been using." On Thursday (February 7) Dorner's pickup truck was found abandoned near the mountains, in an area popular with tourists. He's accused of declaring war on police and their families in a manifesto posted online.
