Border Patrol Agent Shoots Suspect During a Struggle in Arizona Near Border

Border PatrolBy Steve Neavling

A Border Patrol agent defending himself against a physical assault shot and injured a man Friday, officials told the Arizona Daily Star. 

The shooting at 8 p.m. occurred when an agent was tracking down two reported undocumented immigrants outside of Douglas, Ariz., near the border with Mexico.

The agent was trying to arrest the two men when one of them began fighting with the agent, officials said. The suspect grabbed the agent’s steel baton, prompting the law enforcement official to shot the suspect, striking him in the leg.

The suspect’s injuries were not life threatening.

Both suspects are in custody.

An Uber driver from Brooklyn was arrested Monday after authorities said he expressed support for attacking Times Square with a garbage truck.

Mohamed Rafik Naji, 37, is also accused of traveling to Turkey and Yemen last year to join ISIS, the New York Daily News reports. 

Naji showed his support of ISIS on Facebook, posting a photo of an ISIS flag, videos of jihadists and a link to an ISIS spokesman encouraging attacks on Western targets.

Naji is accused of telling an informant that he supported a deadly attack in Times Square with a garbage trucking running over pedestrians.

“They (ISIS) want an operation in Times Square,” Naji told the informant on July 19.

“They want an operation in Times Square, reconnaissance groups already put out a scene, the Islamic State already put up scenes of Times Square … I said that was an indication for whoever is smart to know.”

Alleged Hackers Who Dumped Data about CIA, FBI Were Arrested

A hacking group that called itself “Crackas With Attitude” bragged earlier this year about hacking the CIA, FBI and Justice Department, gaining access to thousands of names, phone numbers and email addresses.

Now two alleged members of the group are behind bars, accused of executing the data breaches, the Wall Street Journal reports. 

Andrew Otto Boggs, 22, and Justin Gray Liverman, 24, both from North Carolina, were charged with  conspiring to commit offenses against the U.S. in late 2015 and early 2016.

Among the victims were CIA Director John Brenna and then-Deputy FBI Director Mark Giuliano.

Investigators also are looking into three teenagers in the U.K. who may have been involved.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Authorities said the suspects often gained access to the accounts by calling the help lines at Internet-service companies and impersonating employees at those companies or the victims they were targeting. They were then able to reset the account passwords to their targets’ private email accounts, giving them access to those accounts. Computer-security experts refer to such techniques as social engineering, rather than hacking, because they typically depend on one person tricking another into providing key information that allows the suspect to access private accounts.

The “Crackas With Attitude’’ then used their access to taunt the officials, particularly Messrs. Brennan and Giuliano, with harassing phone calls and public ridicule posted online.

The FBI arrested a woman who set fire to two blankets while aboard a Puerto Rico-bound flight from New York City’s John F. Kennedy.

According to the statement by the FBI, passenger Idializ Gomez was a passenger on a JetBlue aircraft when she “utilized a lighter to ignite and successfully damage two blankets and a portion of the in-flight control panel of the seat next to hers.”

Gomez boarded the plane at 12:43 a.m. and was arrested at 4:21 a.m. Tuesday, when the aircraft landed in Ponce, Puerto Rico.

Gomez was charged with destruction of an aircraft and aircraft facilities.

It’s unclear what prompted Gomez to allegedly ignite the blankets with a lighter. The FBI continues to investigate.

A 45-year-old Homeland Security employee in Pennsylvania was arrested after authorities say he walked into the agency’s headquarters with a gun, knife, pepper spray, handcuffs and an infrared camera in June.

Leigh Wienke, who is a federal government analyst, was charged with illegally building a silencer on an unregistered pistol, along with six other counts. He faces up to 10 years in prison, NBC Washington reports. 

Security officers found Wienke with the weapons at the headquarters on Nebraska Avenue in northwest D.C.

Agents said in the court filing that there was “probable cause to believe Jonathan Wienke was conspiring with another to commit workplace violence, and more particularly may have been conspiring or planning to commit violence against the senior DHS officials in the building.”

Parents have enough to worry about when sending their children off to school.

In Midland, Texas, a teacher and her husband were arrested over the weekend on methamphetamine-related charges, My San Antonio report.

DEA agents arrested the couple, Theresa Renee Stroud, 47, and Stacy Stroud, 52, who were being held in jail awaiting bond.

Federal officials were staking out the couple for more than a moth before making the arrest.

The good news: Officials don’t believe Theresa Stroud brought the drugs into her classroom.

“I know that when they apprehended her that she had narcotics on her,” Sheriff Gary Painter said. “She was booked into jail and they found some more during the booking process.”

Stroud resigned from Lee High School.

“MISD was made aware of the arrest of Lee High School teacher, Mrs. Theresa Stroud, over the weekend,” MISD Superintendent Ryder Warren said in the release. “I have accepted a resignation from Mrs. Stroud this morning, so she is no longer an employee of the district.”

The men gathered at a warehouse in Phoenix, thinking they were buying sex slaves.

But the auction was set up by the FBI as part of a two-year sting that resulted in the arrest of four American men, The Arizona Republic reports. 

The men outfitted their homes with chains and other confinement devices.

“We are just kind of horrified by the dark nature of this reality,” George Steuer, a supervisory special agent for the FBI in Phoenix, said. “It’s a very sickening reality that you realize some victims have actually had to live through.”

While touring one of the homes, agents were told by a 65-year-old suspect, Charles Bunnell, that the slaves “will never leave. … They are just going to be serving.”

Bunnell is one of the last defendants to be sentenced to federal prison this month. He received 108 months.

The other three men were sentenced to between 60 and 84 months.
