And for Local Links to Terrorist Arrests
The activity seems to be more than just a coincidence. All three men are from Dearborn, Michigan
And they had … CELL PHONES!!!!!
“They are digital for detonating car bombs and they have a particular digital frequency and that’s what they’re using them for,” said Sheriff Larry Mincks.
Althought there were no car bombs involved… Just cell phones. But wait, there’s MORE!
Wal-Mart places a limit on the number of cell phones that can be purchased at once, that number is three. The three men allegedly bought 80 by purchasing them three at time so that an alert wouldn’t be triggered by the cash register. They also paid cash. An alert clerk grew suspicious and called Tuscola County central dispatch. The Caro Police Department sent a unit and stopped the rented van on M-81 just east of Caro. The suspects were headed towards Bad Axe on M-81 where there is another Super Wal-Mart.
Headed toward … BAD AXE! Where there is ANOTHER WAL-MART!!!!!
But wait, there’s MORE!!!
The three men are described as being of Palestinian descent but live in Texas.
… The men have been “cooperative, upfront, not hiding” anything according to police. They also told officers they get stopped frequently and say they buy the phones for $20 and sell them elsewhere for $38. They sell them without the packaging or charger.
Update – Even the FBI is rolling their eyes at this one.
