PHOENIX (AP) - U.S. authorities are offering up to $250,000 for information leading to the capture of two suspects wanted in connection with the 2010 killing of a Border Patrol agent.

Agent Brian Terry was killed in a shootout with criminals who authorities say sneaked into the U.S. to rob marijuana smugglers near the Arizona-Mexico border.

Three of the five suspects have been captured, while two remain at large. One was sentenced in February to 30 years in federal prison.

Authorities are seeking Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes and Jesus Rosario Favela-Astorga.

The case brought to light the government's botched Fast and Furious operation in which U.S. authorities tracking guns allowed criminals to buy them for smugglers. But agents lost track of many of the weapons. Two were found at the scene of Terry's killing.
