23 year-old Harlem Suarez has been arrested in Key West, Florida on charges of planning to use a weapon of mass destruction. Suarez had bought a bomb he planned to bury at a popular spot during the crowded 4th of July festivities and detonate it with a cell phone. However, he had actually bought an inert bomb from an FBI informant.
The FBI has been watching Suarez since April, when he created a Facebook account under the name “Almlak Benitez”. On the account he talked about his support for ISIS and asked how to make a bomb. Suarez had also expressed interest in flying to Syria to join ISIS.
