This time at a military recruitment center in the greater Baltimore area:
A man was arrested Wednesday for plotting to blow up a military recruitment center in the Baltimore area, authorities said.
Antonio Martinez, a Muslim convert who called himself Muhammed Hussain, was arrested and is expected to appear later Wednesday in federal court, Fox News confirms.
Martinez, a U.S. citizen, was caught in a sting operation as he tried to detonate a phony bomb at an Armed Forces recruiting station in Catonsville, just outside Baltimore, officials said.
“A Baltimore man has been arrested this morning in connection with a scheme to attack an Armed Forces recruiting station in Catonsville, Maryland, with what he believed to be vehicle bomb,” U.S. Department of Justice spokesman Dean Boyd said in a statement sent to Fox News. “There was no actual danger to the public as the explosives were inert and the suspect had been carefully monitored by law enforcement for months.”
(Source.) Yep that’s another sting. So expect some liberal idiot to cry “entrapment” in 3… 2… 1…
And in case you are wondering:
There was no evidence the plot was linked to recent shootings at military installations in the Washington area, authorities said. Baltimore is about 40 miles (65 kilometers) north of Washington.
Incidentally, there doesn’t seem to have been any more of those shootings—at least not for a while.
