The Paris attacks that killed 129 people and wounded hundreds of others had “no connection at all” to the U.S., FBI Director James Comey said Thursday.

Speaking at a briefing with Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Comey dismissed any notion that that U.S. is the target of any specific or credible attacks, the USA Today reports.

Still, he emphasized, the FBI stepped up surveillance of dozens of potential suspects who could launch an attack.

Lynch added that the U.S. won’t be intimidated by terrorists.

“We will not let our actions be overtaken by fear,” Lynch said, referring to ISIS operatives as “merchants of violence.”

“They want us to live in fear, and we refuse,” the attorney general said.

The FBI believed it has solved the theft of more than a dozen military weapons from a Massachusetts armory, Inside Edition reports. 

The suspect is a former Army reservist accused of child rape and who was wearing a monitoring bracelet at the time of the theft.

Jams Walker Morales was arrested Wednesday by the FBI and Nassau County Police.

He is accused of stealing 16 weapons, including rifles and pistols, from the Lincoln Stoddard Army Reserve Center in Worcester.

Authorities believe Morales used a power saw and pry bar to breach a metal and rood ceiling to reach a gun vault.

A Secret Service officer accused of sending lewd photos to a Delaware State Police detective whom he believed was a minor is suspected of texting at least 10 minors, The Delaware News Journal reports.  

The new allegations are likely to make it more difficult for Lee Robert Monroe, 37, to get released from jail pending his trial.

Monroe is accused of soliciting sex online in the Delaware State Police case.

But authorities believe that may only be the beginning after allegations surfaced that he texted other minors.

The pressure is mounting for President Obama to fire the head of the DEA after his remarks dismissing medical marijuana as a “joke.”

The Washington Post reports that the call for ousting the acting DEA leader, Chuck Rosenberg, has increased with a bipartisan group of seven lawmakers calling for his replacement.

The remarks “do not reflect the overwhelming body of testimonial evidence, reforms happening across the country at the state level and in Congress, or the opinion of the American people.”

Nearly 100,000 people signed an online petition to call for Rosenberg’s resignation.

Rosenberg took the top job at the DEA six months ago and has made several statements about marijuana that run counter to research on pot.
