A South Carolina ISIS supporter went to great lengths to disguise “potentially lethal bombs” as household items and left them in the street for innocent people to find.
Wesley Dallas Ayers, 27, planted three real bombs in rural Anderson County, SC, including one disguised as a teddy bear (pictured below), and three fake bombs.
The photo below is of the bomb shaped like a teddy bear with glowing eyes:
A man received burns on his leg when a wicker basket exploded. He had noticed the glowing basket while driving with his daughter and got out of the car to investigate.
“This was deliberately placed where a child or passerby could have found it. Fortunately, someone saw it and knew to call us.” – Christopher Derrickson, special agent, FBI Columbia
A note was later discovered by police that was written in Arabic and referenced Osama bin Laden. It pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and said the community was no longer safe.
In addition, two more bombs were found by members of the public.
The teddy bear-shaped bomb pictured above was found in the road.
For anyone out there who believes we’re out of the woods with terrorism, we’re not. It’s a battle that rages on…
Another ISIS terrorist in his twenties has been reportedly arrested in Pittsburgh:
A Syrian refugee who arrived during Obama’s administration has been arrested on terrorism charges after he allegedly planned an attack on the Legacy International Worship Center on the North Side of Pittsburgh.
Syrian Refugee Mustafa Alowemer, a 21-year-old, is facing one count of attempting to provide material support and resources to ISIS and two counts of distributing information relating to an explosive, destructive device or weapon of mass destruction.
CBS local reports: Assistant Attorney General Demers made a statement about the arrest:
“Targeting places of worship is beyond the pale, no matter what the motivation. The defendant is alleged to have plotted just such an attack of a church in Pittsburgh in the name of ISIS. The National Security Division and our partners will continue our efforts to identify and bring to justice individuals in our country who seek to commit violence on behalf of ISIS and other terrorist organizations. I want to thank the agents, analysts, and prosecutors who are responsible for this investigation.”
FBI Pittsburgh Joint Terrorism Task Force discovered the man who was inspired by ISIS had plotted to place a bomb in the church and he was inspired by ISIS.
