A camp ranger carjacked by Christopher Dorner and who called 911 is seeking the entire $1.2-million reward offered for the now-deceased ex-L.A. police officer who killed four people before taking his own life in a Big Bear-area cabin.

It was not long after Heltebrake called 911 that San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies surrounded the cabin where Dorner was hiding Feb. 12 and where he shot himself.
Heltebrake, a full-time ranger at Boy Scouts-owned Camp Tahquitz, said in the claim for the reward that he was driving on Glass Road when a man jumped out of a snow bank and pointed a firearm at him.
