An FBI agent who was arrested in Pakistan for trying to board a flight with bullets and a knife in his luggage will not be charged after all, Reuters reports.

A Pakistani court dismissed the case Monday in a move likely intended to keep from souring U.S.-Pakistani ties.

Joel Cox, an FBI agent for the Miami Field Office, was arrested May 4 after trying to board a civilian flight with the knife and bullets. He was jailed for three days before being released on $10,000 bond.

“Since he was not carrying a weapon, only bullets were found from his luggage, the investigation report recommended the cancellation of the case,” Inspector Khalid Mehmood told Reuters.

Police are expected to file formal charges soon against the FBI agent who was arrested in Pakistan after authorities said he tried to carry ammunition and a knife onto a plane in Karachi.

The Associated Press reports that a judge on Saturday urged police to file the charges by May 19, the Associated Press reports.

FBI Agent Joel Cox of the Miami Field Office is expected to be back in court on that date. He is free of jail on a $9,800 bail.

Pakistani officials have said there appeared to be no criminal intent in trying to bring the ammunition and knife.

U.S. officials said Cox forgot to remove the weapons from his carry-on luggage.

The investigation has been submitted to the court, where Cox faces charges of carrying unauthorized ammunition on a civilian flight.

An FBI agent who was arrested in Pakistan after authorities said he tried to carry ammunition and a knife onto a plane in Karachi may be released from jail today on $10,000 bail, the Washington Post reports this morning.

The agent has been identified as Joel Cox, who works in the Miami Field Office.

News of his possible release comes a day after Pakistani officials said he would be jailed until at least Saturday while awaiting anti-terrorism charges.

The tone in Pakistan has changed.

“The government can challenge the bail but since the offense is not serious enough they might not challenge it,” a police officer said.
Instead of facing anti-terrorism charges, as first reported, Cox faces charges of carrying unauthorized ammunition on a civilian flight.
American officials confirmed that Cox was arrested after security found a knife and 15 9mm bullets in his luggage.

Homeland Security is in on a shopping spree for more than 140,000 rounds of sniper ammunition, Inforwars.com reports.

The department is looking for 141,160 rounds of Hornady .308 Winchester 168gr A-MAX TAP ammunition.

The cost per round – $1.20.

It’s unclear why the department wants so many rounds of ammunition because the bullets are unsuitably expensive for training purposes, according to Infowars.com.

The U.S. and Puerto Rico are safer today because of an anti-crime initiative aimed at putting more federal agents in Puerto Rico, Reuters reports.

Dubbed “Operation Caribbean Resilience,” the effort started in July 2012 but increased markedly over the last three months, according to Reuters.

In the past year, the operation has netted 320 arrests and the seizure of 170 guns, drugs and ammunition.

“Through our joint efforts … we have not only made the streets of Puerto Rico much safer, but also improved security in the mainland United States,” said John Sandweg, acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The operation has begun to target drug gangs and criminal enterprises, Reuters reported.
