It isn’t clear what exactly these two young men were doing or intending to do while dressed in these fake FBI jackets — but just imagine what a committed Islamic jihadist could accomplish with such an item. “FBI Jackets Not Authentic: Found after a short car chase, and suspects face weapons charges,” from WHAM News, March 2 (thanks to Patriot):
Two suspects may face additional charges after police say they were dressed as FBI agents and they were not law enforcement officers.
Both suspects, 23-year-old Mohamed Diallo and 21-year-old Kwamell Smith, face charges of criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of stolen property.
Police say the suspects were spotted in a car Tuesday in the area of East Main Street and Culver Road, and the car was an SUV that had a blue LED dash light.
Officers say a similar type of car was used in a crime on Cedarwood Terrace. Two officers followed the car to the area of East Main Street and Alexander Street.
There was a brief chase that ended on nearby Prince Street. Police say they recovered an FBI jacket and three guns, two of which had been reported stolen.
Police say while this was going on a man called 911 to report that he had just been followed by a similar SUV as he pulled into a driveway on Cedarwood Terrace.
Two men, dressed as FBI agents, approached him and ordered him to stop. The man ran into a home and the suspects drove off.
Police say the FBI jackets were not authentic, the FBI was notified, and further charges are pending.
