    Three Arrested in Bomb Plot Targeting Somalis in Kansas

    Three Arrested in Bomb Plot Targeting Somalis in Kansas

    by PETE WILLIAMS

    Three Kansas men were arrested Friday and charged with plotting to attack an apartment building in Garden City, Kansas where Somali immigrants were living.

    Prosecutors say the men, who called themselves "The Crusaders," were unaware that the FBI was on to them last February and kept them under close surveillance. The men had ties to an anti-government hate group, officials said, and talked about carrying out the attack after the election.


    According to the charges, they considered a number of possible targets before settling on the apartment building and talked about attacking it with car bombs which they said would "wake people up."


    The men were arrested Friday morning in the Liberal, Kansas area, after receiving what they thought were working firearms from an FBI undercover operative, officials said.


    There is a sizable Somali population in that area working in a Tyson foods processing plant.

    WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) UPDATE (10/14/16): Three men were arrested on Friday for threatening to attack an apartment complex and mosque in Garden City.

    Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall says Curtis Allen, 49, Gavin Wright, 51, and Patrick Stein were all charged with domestic terrorism.


    Beall said the three were planning to bomb an apartment complex and mosque in Garden City occupied by about 120 Somali refugees.

    Beall said the men planned to carry out the attack on Nov. 9, the day after Election Day.

    He said the men stockpiled a large cache of firearms, and ammunition.


    Beall said the men planned to park vehicles full of explosives at all four corners of the Garden City apartment complex. The men said they wanted to "wake people up".


    Beall said the men wrote a manifesto, which they wanted published after the bombing. They were a part of a group called "Crusaders," which is a hidden culture using hatred and violence, he said.


    Beall said the men's arrest is a part of an eight month long investigation.


    Eyewitness News first learned about the investigation when Liberal police and the FBI shutdown multiple streets in town on Tuesday.

    All three men are currently in the Sedgwick County jail on one count of conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction.

    If convicted, all three could face life in prison.
    ----
    Federal officials are expected to announce three arrests involving a major investigation this afternoon.


    According to a news release from Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall, the three were arrested Friday following that investigation.


    Eyewitness News called the Liberal Police Department to get an update on the incident that occurred on Tuesday, in which there were multiple road closures and the FBI was assisting.


    The department said the FBI would hold a news conference at 4 p.m., the same time the U.S. Attorney is expected to make an announcement on a major investigation.


    Eyewitness News will carry that press conference live on KSCW-33 and here at www.kwch.com.

    Tyson's quest for cheap labor, first with illegals from Mexico, then Somali refugees, has created chaos in many communities.

    Kansas Men Plotting to Bomb Somalis Charged in Federal Court

    by ASSOCIATED PRESS and SAFIA SAMEE ALI

    Three men accused of plotting to attack Somali immigrants in Kansas will remain in prison after being charged with one count of conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction.

    Curtis Wayne Allen, Patrick Eugene Stein and Gavin Wayne Wright will remain in police custody after federal prosecutor said they pose a danger to the community.

    Prosecutors allege that the men are members of a small militia group calling itself "the Crusaders," whose members espouse sovereign citizen, anti-government, anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant extremist beliefs.


    The Kansas men were planning on detonating four truck bombs around at an apartment complex housing about 120 Somalis hoping to create a "bloodbath" according to the recently unsealed complaint. The attack was to "wake" people up so they can take "this country back."

    The attack plan was thwarted by the FBI who were investigating the potential threat for eight months.


    Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said in a statement that the almost year long investigation "is alleged to have taken the investigators deep into a hidden culture of hatred and violence."


    A preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 28, although lawyers told the court they anticipate that hearing will not be needed because a grand jury will likely hand down an indictment before then.
