#AceNewsReport – Apr.14: Antrim pleaded guilty in March 2019 to a five-count information charging him with conspiracy to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, conspiracy to deprive rights under color of law, deprivation of rights under color of law, and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime:
FBI/ATF/LASD Investgation: ‘Ex-L.A. Sheriff’s Deputy Sentenced to 7yrs in Federal Prison for Leading $2 Million Armed Robbery of Marijuana Warehouse: Marc Antrim, 43, of South El Monte, who formerly was assigned to the LASD station in Temple City, was sentenced by United States District Judge Virginia A. Phillips, who said, “the seriousness of the crime could not be overstated.” The heist, which “sounded like a movie script,” was “tragic” for the victims and eroded “the public’s trust (in law enforcement),” the judge said’
During the early morning hours of October 29, 2018, Antrim and his co-conspirators dressed as armed LASD deputies and approached the warehouse in an LASD Ford Explorer. Upon arrival, Antrim flashed his LASD badge and a fake search warrant to the security guards to gain entry to the warehouse. To perpetuate the ruse that they were legitimate law enforcement officers, Antrim and two fake deputies sported LASD clothing, wore duty belts, and carried firearms. One fake deputy also visibly carried a long gun to further intimidate the guards into submission.
At the beginning of the two-hour robbery, Antrim and his co-conspirators detained the three warehouse security guards in the cage of the LASD Ford Explorer. Soon after the guards were detained, a fourth man arrived at the warehouse in a large rental truck, and all four men began loading marijuana into the truck.
When Los Angeles Police Department officers legitimately responded to a call for service at the warehouse during the robbery, Antrim falsely told the LAPD officers that he was an LASD narcotics deputy conducting a legitimate search. To facilitate the sham, Antrim handed his phone to one of the LAPD officers so that the police officer could speak to someone on the phone claiming to be Antrim’s LASD sergeant. The individual on the phone was not Antrim’s sergeant, and Antrim did not have a legitimate search warrant for the warehouse.
After LAPD officers left the warehouse, other co-conspirators arrived and the robbery continued, allowing the fake law enforcement crew to steal even more marijuana and two large safes containing over half a million dollars in cash.
At the time of the robbery, Antrim was a patrol deputy assigned to the Temple City station, but he was not on duty, was not assigned to the department’s narcotics unit, was not a detective, and would not have had a legitimate reason to search a marijuana distribution warehouse in the City of Los Angeles.
Prosecutors have secured six convictions in this case for the co-conspirators who took part in the raid alongside Antrim.
Christopher Myung Kim, 31, of Walnut, a disgruntled former warehouse employee, is serving a 14-year federal prison sentence after being found guilty by a jury for his role in planning the heist and making off with $1.5 million in stolen marijuana after the raid. Antrim testified at Kim’s trial, which the judge credited as a significant reason to reduce Antrim’s sentence.
Kevin McBride, 45, of Glendora, and Eric Rodriguez, 35, of Adelanto, are serving federal prison sentences of six and nine years, respectively, after pleading guilty to felony charges in this case. In a related case, Antrim’s other co-conspirators, Matthew James Perez, 44, of Ontario, Daniel Aguilera, 33, of Los Angeles, and Jay Colby Sanford, 43, of Pomona, are serving sentences of six years’ imprisonment, two years’ imprisonment, and five years’ probation, respectively.
This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration; the FBI; and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. LASD’s Internal Criminal Investigations Bureau provided substantial assistance to the federal investigation.

#AceNewsReport – Apr.12: In rejecting prosecutors’ request for a 17-year term, U.S. District Judge Andrea Wood said that while any terrorism case is serious, the scheme that Jones was convicted of “was not of comparable severity” as many others where specific violence was planned:
‘Man sentenced to 12 years in federal prison for conspiring to assist the #IslamicState Joseph Jones and his friend Edward Schimentiwere convicted by a federal jury in 2019 of conspiracy to provide material support to a terrorist organisation’
“This is not a case where anyone claims Mr. Jones was actually planning on carrying out a terrorism attack,” Wood said. “And it’s not disputed … that Mr. Jones never actually made contact with anyone directly involved with ISIS.”
But Wood also said she could not give Jones time served as suggested by his attorneys, adding that Jones had tried to “minimize his conduct” in statements to law enforcement after his arrest and in his testimony at trial.
The lengthy sentencing hearing played out over two days beginning last month and included a tearful statement from Jones, who apologized for his “grave mistake.” But he also denied being a terrorist and accused federal investigators of ensnaring him in an undercover operation by “preying on my sympathies.”
“Sometimes I feel like I have every reason to hate the government, but I don’t hate them,” Jones said. “I forgive them for what they’ve done.”
Jones also insisted he was never out to hurt anybody but simply “trying to be a good Muslim and a good American.”
“I consider myself a patriot,” he said in a voice choked with emotion. “I have my own view and my own beliefs, and it’s not about hatred.”
In asking for a 17-year sentence, Assistant U.S. Attorney Barry Jonas wrote in a court filing that although the friends were not planning to travel overseas themselves to fight, they celebrated the violence that ISIS perpetrated and believed they were assisting in it.
“The defendants deliberately attempted to assist an extremely violent terrorist group they knew was engaged in a wide range of atrocities,” Jonas wrote. “Not only were defendants aware of these atrocities, they celebrated them, gleefully watching horrific execution videos and sharing such ISIS propaganda online.”
Jones’ attorney, Patrick Boyle, had asked for a term of time served, which as of February was just under four years behind bars. In a lengthy court filing this week, Boyle described how Jones’ family life had deteriorated with his father’s drug addiction, leading him into his own problems with substance abuse and petty crime.
Jones found Islam as a teen and credits the religion with helping get him sober, Boyle said. But his continuing research on the formation of an Islamic state “took him to dark places on the internet,” including “slick” videos produced by ISIS that glorified attacks on civilians, which Jones does not condone.
“He believes that Islam never justifies violence against people who are just trying to live their lives,” Boyle wrote.
Renewing an argument from trial that Jones was entrapped by undercover FBI agents, Boyle said that Jones feels betrayed by the government and that “they pressured him into something he didn’t want to do.”
The case against Jones and Schimenti marked the only time so far Islamic State-related charges have gone to trial in Chicago, instead of ending with a guilty plea. The trial featured days of testimony about the group’s brutal tactics — including torture and beheadings — as well as its notorious propaganda campaigns aimed at impressionable Americans.
Jurors were shown one propaganda video found on Schimenti’s computer showing terrorists clad in all black standing behind six captured Kurdish fighters whispering prayers while on their knees. Prosecutors stopped the video as the terrorist narrating it in English held a large knife up to the throat of one of the captives.
The investigation began in September 2015 when an undercover agent posing as a motorist arrested in a traffic-related incident approached Jones at the Zion Police Department, where Jones was being interviewed about the recent slaying of a friend.
That agent introduced Jones and Schimenti to others posing as devotees of ISIS, including an informant they knew as Mohammed, who told them he was going to the Middle East to join the Islamic State ranks, according to prosecutors.
In February 2017, Schimenti took the informant to a gym in Zion to train for the battlefield. Remarking on his own weight problem, Schimenti said on an undercover recording that what mattered most in jihad was “hand-to-hand” combat skills, not physical fitness.
“Man, you know I’m all big, fat,” Schimenti said on the recording played for jurors. “But (God willing) the brothers will just have me be the one to cut the neck.”
Although the charges do not allege the two participated in any violence, Schimenti talked with the informant about future plans to attack Naval Station Great Lakes in North Chicago, a short distance from his home.
On April 7, 2017, Schimenti and Jones dropped off Mohammed at O’Hare International Airport equipped with cellphones they had purchased at his direction, according to the charges.
“Drench that land with they, they blood,” Schimenti allegedly said as he and Jones saw the man off at the airport.
Boyle told reporters he was “disappointed” that jurors rejected his argument of entrapment.
“The government had my client under surveillance going back to 2015, including aerial surveillance,” Jones said. “Then they concocted a ruse to introduce an undercover (operative) and worked on him for almost two years.”
#AceNewsReport – Apr.05: Korshunov worked for Russian state-owned aviation company United Engine Corporation (UEC), while also serving as an intelligence officer with Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), the FBI said:
U.S. Adds Russian To FBI Most-Wanted List For Alleged Theft Of Industrial Secrets: The FBI said on April 2 on Twitter it is seeking the arrest of Aleksandr Korshunov, 58, saying he is suspected of conspiring to steal trade secrets from the company to benefit Russia.
UEC appointed Korshunov in 2009 as its director of marketing and sales, the U.S. law enforcement agency said in a statement accompanying the tweet that includes a photo of Korshunov.
Korshunov’s job was to encourage Western aviation companies to work with UEC to advance Russia’s aviation technology, the FBI said.
“It is alleged that, between 2013 and 2018, Korshunov conspired and attempted to steal trade secrets from an American aviation company, the FBI said. “He hired engineers employed by a subsidiary of a large United States aviation company to consult on the redesign of the Russian PD-14 aero engine.”
Korshunov was able to acquire the company’s confidential, protected, and unique engineering patterns, plans, and procedures “for the benefit of Russia,” the FBI said.
But his lawyer told TASS that he returned to Moscow in the summer of 2020 “accompanied by Russian law enforcement under arrest.”
Russian authorities said Korshunov was wanted in Russia to face charges of embezzlement and fraud, TASS said.
He was extradited to Russia “under the decision of the Italian Justice Ministry and in accordance with the relevant request,” which Italy’s judiciary had approved before the U.S. sought extradition, the report said.
The original U.S. complaint accused Korshunov and Maurizio Bianchi, the former director of an Italian division of General Electric (GE) Aviation, of hiring former GE employees to prepare a technical report on jet engine accessories using the U.S. company’s intellectual property.
GE Aviation is one of the world’s largest suppliers of civilian and military aircraft engines and has a factory in Cincinnati. It completed the acquisition of an Italian manufacturer of aviation components in 2013.
The Russian Embassy in Washington said its diplomats protested Korshunov’s detention after it was announced in 2019, calling it “illegitimate.”
#AceNewsReport – Mar.22: Leonard C Boyle, Acting United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that RANDY TEXIDOR, 31, of Berlin, was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge Stefan R. Underhill to 72 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for fentanyl distribution and drug possession offenses:
‘According to court documents and statements made in court, in 2017, the FBI’s Northern Connecticut Gang Task Force and Hartford Police Department received information that Texidor was distributing significant quantities of heroin. Between October and December 2017, investigators made eight controlled purchases of escalating quantities of heroin and/or fentanyl from Texidor’
Pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), the sentencing occurred via videoconference.
The investigation revealed that Texidor and an associate used an apartment on Wadsworth Street in Hartford to process, package and store heroin. On February 13, 2018, a court-authorized search of the apartment revealed approximately 92 grams of fentanyl, 23 grams of heroin, 500 dose bags of suspected heroin/fentanyl, items used to process and package narcotics, a .380 caliber pistol, and $5,981 in cash.
Texidor has been detained since his arrest on February 13, 2018. On October 30, 2020, he pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute fentanyl, and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.
The FBI’s Northern Connecticut Gang Task Force includes members of the Hartford Police Department, East Hartford Police Department, New Britain Police Department, West Hartford Police Department, Connecticut State Police and Connecticut Department of Correction.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian P. Leaming.
#AceNewsReport – Mar.19: As part of the conspiracy, Kriuchkov traveled from Russia to California through New York. On numerous occasions between Aug. 1, 2020, and Aug. 21, 2020, Kriuchkov traveled from California to Nevada in an attempt to entice the employee to participate in this hacking scheme, offering to pay the employee with Bitcoin if the employee transmitted the malware. After meeting with Kriuchkov, the employee reported his conduct to the victim company, which promptly contacted the FBI. The FBI then thwarted the scheme:
Russian National Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Introduce Malware into a U.S. Company’s Computer Network: ‘Defendant’s attempt to recruit employee to transmit malware to exfiltrate data and extort company thwarted by FBI: ‘According to court documents and admissions made in court, from July 15, 2020, to Aug. 22, 2020, Egor Igorevich Kriuchkov, 27, conspired with others to recruit an employee of a large U.S. company to transmit malware provided by the conspirators into the company’s computer network. Once the malware was installed, Kriuchkov and his co-conspirators would use it to exfiltrate data from the company’s computer network and then extort the company by threatening to disclose the data’
“The swift response of the company and the FBI prevented a major exfiltration of the victim company’s data and stopped the extortion scheme at its inception,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicholas L. McQuaid of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “This case highlights the importance of companies coming forward to law enforcement, and the positive results when they do so.”
“This case highlights our office’s commitment to protecting trade secrets and other confidential information belonging to U.S. businesses — which is becoming even more important each day as Nevada evolves into a center for technological innovation,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Christopher Chiou for the District of Nevada. “Along with our law enforcement partners, we will continue to prioritize stopping cybercriminals from harming American companies and consumers.”
“This is an excellent example of community outreach resulting in strong partnerships, which led to proactive law enforcement action before any damage could occur,” said Special Agent in Charge Aaron C. Rouse of the FBI’s Las Vegas Field Office.
Kriuchkov pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to intentionally cause damage to a protected computer and is scheduled to be sentenced May 10.
The investigation was led by the FBI Las Vegas Field Office with the assistance of the FBI Los Angeles Field Office, the FBI Sacramento Field Office, and the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office in Nevada.
The case is being prosecuted by Senior Counsel C.S. Heath and Trial Attorney Thomas Dettore of the Criminal Division’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section and Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Casper of the District of Nevada.

#AceNewsReport – Mar.18: Paul Miller, 32, was arrested Tuesday after the FBI’s joint terrorism task force raided the Riverside home he had been renting for a month after Miller moved there from New Jersey:
At Behest Of ADL, FBI Terrorism Task Force Arrests White Comedian Activist Paul Miller On ‘Parole Violation’ Miller is charged with possessing a firearm by a felon and witnesses say they saw agents remove guns from the house: Miller has an internet presence and often appears in costume ranting racist remarks.
After his arrest, the Anti-Defamation League put out this tweet:
“Several months ago, ADL’s Center on Extremism identified Paul Miller as a volatile white supremacist-accelerationist. COE tracked him to Fort Lauderdale and shared significant intelligence with federal law enforcement before today’s arrest.”
CBS 4 spoke to Carla Hill with the ADL’s center on extremism on Wednesday.
She says Miller started becoming more extreme six months ago.
“The concerning thing is he seems to get more extreme to keep his followers interested. He has several red flags. His violent rhetoric. He has weapons, he expressed the need for a race war,” she says.
At the end of his hearing, Miller expressed regret saying, “I’m really sorry about all of this. I really am.”
Like the recent case of Travis Patron in Canada, Jewish supremacist groups are exercising their power behind the scenes to get law enforcement to arrest people they don’t like on trumped up “hate speech” charges using whatever legal technicalities they can find.
Let’s face it — if the FBI wanted to, they could arrest tens of thousands of violent Black felons on parole violations — especially for weapon possessions — every day of the week, all year long, but they don’t.
Black violence is not considered “domestic terrorism” — and Black mass murderers “don’t count” among “real” mass murderers, according to law enforcement.
In fact, courts will often dismiss weapons charges against these violent Black felons — while allegedly pursuing convictions on more “serious” crimes.
Paul Miller has no apparent history of violent criminality — he was apparently arrested 13 years ago when he was around 18 years old on some sort of drug charges — and part of his parole agreement was that he not possess any guns, which is standard for felony charges.
And yet despite violating his terms of parole, his parole officer allegedly allowed him to leave New Jersey and recently move to Florida — which is very strange considering the “seriousness” of that violation.
But here’s where it gets even more strange — part of Paul Miller’s online act as the “Gypsy Crusader” — where he dresses up as the Joker, the Riddler, or one of the Mario Brothers — and trolls people with “racist” comments on the Omegle chat server — is that he often brandishes a handgun at people as he trolls them.
Even if that handgun that he uses in his act is fake — which it most assuredly is — it is certainly a stupid thing to do because if the FBI saw him with that gun, they could very easily be justified in getting a search warrant to investigate if it is indeed real.
And given how he openly uses the most raw and extreme language in his act — he must have known that he would get the attention of Jewish groups like the ADL who would look for any excuse to shut him down and get him arrested.
Paul Miller’s act is all about shocking people with “forbidden” naughty words — like nigger, kike, dyke, etc. — and in many ways he’s not unlike the Jewish “comedian” Lenny Bruce, who was famous for calling Blacks in his audience “nigger” at his live stand-up shows.
In fact, when Lenny Bruce says “nigger”, it’s not a violation of YouTube’s terms of service — but that’s because Jews openly admit hypocrisy and double standards are part of their way of live.
But, of course, the crucial difference is that Lenny Bruce had Jewish privilege — when he called Blacks “nigger”, it was for the “right” reasons — but Paul Miller isn’t allowed to say it, even though he’s made it abundantly clear he was doing it as “comedy entertainment” to destroy the social power that the word has, just like Lenny Bruce.
Despite the ADL’s attempt to portray Paul Miller as “inciting violence”, there is no proof whatsoever that anyone has been harmed by his online act — even indirectly — and a recent suppressed Federal government report admits that online “hate speech” like Miller’s does NOT cause violent “hate crimes” in the real world.
In reality, the Jewish supremacists wanted Paul Miller silenced because he openly challenges their Jewish supremacy and hypocrisy — and to the ADL, when you challenge their power, you are a “terrorist”.
#AceNewsReport – Mar.17: The Departments investigated multiple public claims that one or more foreign governments owned, directed, or controlled election infrastructure used in the 2020 federal elections; implemented a scheme to manipulate election infrastructure; or tallied, changed, or otherwise manipulated vote counts. The Departments found that those claims were not credible.
No Evidence Found that a Foreign Government Manipulated Any Election Results
Last Published Date: March 16, 2021:
These conclusions are part of a classified report to the President prepared by DOJ and DHS pursuant to section 1(b) of Executive Order 13848, Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Influence in a United States Election (the EO), issued on Sept. 12, 2018. Although the 1(b) report notes that Russian, Chinese, and Iranian government-affiliated actors materially impacted the security of certain networks during the 2020 federal elections, the Departments found no evidence that any foreign government-affiliated actor manipulated election results or otherwise compromised the integrity of the 2020 federal elections.
The 1(b) report relied on a classified assessment — prepared by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), pursuant to section 1(a) of the EO, about any information indicating that a foreign government acted with the intent or purpose of interfering in the 2020 U.S. federal elections. Whereas the 1(a) report discusses efforts to influence public perceptions and opinion, the scope of the 1(b) report only includes efforts to compromise the security or integrity of election infrastructure or infrastructure pertaining to political organizations, candidates, or campaigns used in the 2020 U.S. federal elections. The 1(b) report does not discuss efforts to sway voters or influence opinion.
During the 2020 election cycle, federal, state, local, tribal, territorial, non-governmental, and private sector partners nationwide worked together in unprecedented ways to combat foreign interference efforts and support election officials, political organizations, campaigns, and candidates in safeguarding their infrastructure. The Departments remain committed to continuously strengthening the nation’s cybersecurity, critical infrastructure, supply chain risk management, public-private partnerships, and public messaging to enhance the resiliency of our democratic institutions.
#AceNewsReport – Mar.16: The Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Tennessee, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Metro Nashville Police Department, Tennessee Highway Patrol, and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have concluded a significant portion of the investigation into the explosion that occurred on December 25, 2020, at approximately 6:30 a.m. Central Time, in downtown Nashville, Tennessee:
FBI Releases Full Report on Nashville Bombing: The investigative team took diligent steps to determine the reason or reasons why Warner decided to construct and ultimately detonate his device in downtown Nashville on December 25, 2020. The FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit, based in Quantico, Virginia, further assisted the local investigative team in answering this question:
‘The investigation found that Anthony Quinn Warner of Antioch, Tennessee, acting alone, built and ultimately detonated the vehicle-borne improvised explosive device. His actions were determined to not be related to terrorism’
Following the explosion, the FBI worked closely with our law enforcement partners on a coordinated and comprehensive investigation. After recovering more than 3,000 pounds of evidence from the blast site, combing through more than 2,500 tips, and conducting more than 250 interviews, the investigative team has reached the following conclusions.
Based on analysis of the information and evidence gathered throughout the investigation, the FBI assesses Warner’s detonation of the improvised explosive device was an intentional act in an effort to end his own life, driven in part by a totality of life stressors – including paranoia, long-held individualized beliefs adopted from several eccentric conspiracy theories, and the loss of stabilizing anchors and deteriorating interpersonal relationships.
The FBI assesses Warner specifically chose the location and timing of the bombing so that it would be impactful, while still minimizing the likelihood of causing undue injury. The FBI’s analysis did not reveal indications of a broader ideological motive to use violence to bring about social or political change, nor does it reveal indications of a specific personal grievance focused on individuals or entities in and around the location of the explosion.
It is important to note that only Warner knows the real reason why he detonated his explosive device. However, at this time, the FBI is confident, based on evidence collected, Warner’s own writings, and interviews with those who knew him best, that the above assessment is accurate.
Special Agent in Charge Douglas Korneski of the FBI Memphis Field Office stated, “The FBI would like to thank the citizens and private sector partners of Nashville, Tennessee, for their support during the response and investigation, especially those who provided tips and volunteered their time and resources. Additionally, the collaborative efforts of all local, state and federal agencies who responded to this incident, and the hundreds of hours dedicated by their men and women, were truly invaluable to this unified effort. They exemplified the tireless dedication we’ve come to expect from those who respond to these types of critical incidents.”

USAO Public Affairs also worked with partner agencies to coordinate and manage the flow of information to the media and the community as details from the investigation emerged.
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF)
The National Response Team (NRT) which was comprised of 40 members including Certified Fire Investigators and Certified Explosives Specialists focused on the processing of explosives at the scene. The NRT was supported by subject matter experts from the National Center for Explosives Training and Research (NCETR) and the U.S. Bomb Data Center both located in Huntsville, Alabama. Due to the extent of the scene the ATF mobile command vehicle was on site to provide additional support both from the communications as well as analytical perspectives. Additional ATF resources included explosives canines, representatives to ESF-13 and ESF-15 as well as the behavioral analysis unit. ATF public and governmental affairs consistently worked with the partnering agencies focusing on the media and congressional inquiries. Finally, the ATF Nashville Field Division had over 60 personnel both onsite and offsite working this incident.

Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD)
Six MNPD personnel from the Central Precinct, a sergeant and five officers, were on the scene when the RV exploded at 6:30 a.m. on December 25, 2020. The response from the MNPD grew exponentially in the minutes and hours following the blast. Hazardous Devices Unit (HDU) officers, who were en route to 2nd Avenue prior to the explosion, started to lockdown the inner perimeter surrounding the actual blast site. All 10 HDU officers responded to the scene and began coordinating initial sweeps of the downtown area looking for any secondary devices with assistance from explosive detection canine teams from the MNPD & Tennessee Highway Patrol. Additional police personnel were requested to expand the perimeter to the interstate with assistance from the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Tennessee Task Force 2 Urban Search & Rescue personnel from the Metropolitan Police & Fire Departments responded to assist any persons trapped by the explosion (thankfully, no one was found). Specialized Investigations Division personnel began work at intelligence gathering to determine if the bombing was part of a larger criminal act.
The response command structure was divided into 6 elements on Christmas morning, with resources assigned to each:
Overall Command (based at Nissan Stadium)
Unified Command (based at the Emergency Operations Center)
Staging & Logistics Branch
Special Operations Division/Urban Search & Rescue Branch
Thirty-two (32) traffic posts were established to secure the area. As days passed, the number of traffic posts declined as the perimeter shrank and businesses were allowed to reopen.
More than 500 MNPD personnel were part of the response to this incident between December 25 and December 29, 2020.
Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP)
Commissioner Jeff Long and Tennessee Highway Patrol Colonel Matt Perry immediately called the department into action once notified of the bombing and the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security sent a rotation of troopers and agents to assist with the investigation and security of Nashville after the bombing.
Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) troopers staffed perimeters, intersections, flew aviation details and cleared downtown buildings with EOD K-9s.
The THP’s Criminal Investigation Division worked with local, state and federal agencies to help identify a 17-digit number from parts and pieces of the bombed vehicle. That 17-digit number was used to build and identify a vehicle identification number (VIN) with the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB).
The Tennessee Office of Homeland Security had agents that responded to the command post and coordinated with multiple local, state and federal partners along with the Tennessee Fusion Center during the investigation.
43 Troopers worked 658.5 hours on the Nashville Explosion.
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI)
In support of the FBI-led effort, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation provided key technical support and expertise in the aftermath of the Nashville bombing. In total, TBI personnel provided 680 hours of work to this investigation, across several divisions:
12 TBI Special Agent/Forensic Scientists, assigned to a variety of disciplines, provided a combined 64 hours of work to support efforts to identify and document evidence in the case, including identification of the suspect’s vehicle, specialized photography, fiber analysis, and the DNA process and review that resulted in the confirmation of the suspect’s identity.
13 TBI Special Agents, assigned to the TBI’s Criminal Investigation Division, provided investigative support in the aftermath of the bombing, conducted interviews, vetted leads, and gathered and reviewed preliminary video footage of the incident.
Intelligence Analysts and Special Agents from TBI’s Criminal Intelligence Unit and its Technical Services Unit, assigned to either the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force and Joint CyberCrime Task Force, provided direct support to the investigation, vetted cyber leads and secured and reviewed digital evidence, including relevant cell phone records.
In the immediate aftermath, Agents assigned to TBI’s Aviation Unit deployed to use the Bureau’s aircraft and drones to assist in documenting the bombing site, blast radius, and search for potential victims.

#AceNewsReport – Dec.11: As of December 2020, the FBI, CISA, and MS-ISAC continue to receive reports from K-12 educational institutions about the disruption of distance learning efforts by cyber actors,” the alert reads. “Cyber actors likely view schools as targets of opportunity, and these types of attacks are expected to continue through the 2020/2021 academic year,” it added: But of all the attacks plaguing the K-12 sector (kindergarten through twelfth-grade schools), ransomware has been a particularly aggressive threat this year, CISA and the FBI said:
CISA has observed continuing ransomware attacks across the country and around the world: See CISA’s Awareness Briefings on Combating Ransomware, Joint Ransomware Statement, and CISA Insights – Ransomware Outbreak. Below, please find resources on CISA’s newly redesigned ransomware information page to better connect you with helpful resources and tools you and your organization need to guard against the ransomware threat.
Looking to learn more about this growing cyber threat? With industry best practices and individualized checklists, the NEW Ransomware Guide is a great place to start. The guide, released in September 2020, represents a joint effort between CISA and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC). The joint Ransomware Guide is a customer-centered, one-stop resource with best practices and ways to prevent, protect and/or respond to a ransomware attack.
In addition to reviewing the Ransomware Guide, we invite you to click on resources below to find additional Ransomware-related information. These resources are designed to help individuals and organizations prevent attacks that can severely impact business processes and leave organizations without the data they need to operate and deliver mission-critical services.
According to MS-ISAC data, the percentage of reported ransomware incidents against K-12 schools increased at the beginning of the 2020 school year,” the two agencies said. “In August and September, 57% of ransomware incidents reported to the MS-ISAC involved K-12 schools, compared to 28% of all reported ransomware incidents from January through July,” they said:
#AceNewsReport – Oct.26: Editor says here’s what we know of this arrest so far: The suspect has been identified as Cesar A. Sayoc, 56, of Aventura, Florida: Sayoc has a criminal record and was born in Brooklyn, according to authorities: Court records also show that Sayoc was convicted in the 1990s in Broward County on grand theft and stolen property charges and in 2004 on a felony charge of fraudulent refunds and misdemeanor of tampering with physical evidence: Who Is Cesar Sayoc? A law enforcement source told CBS News authorities were led to Sayoc in part through DNA evidence: He was tracked through his cell phone, sources told CBS2 #AceNewsDesk reports

Sayoc was taken into custody at or near an auto supply shop in Plantation, Florida, north of Miami: The scene showed numerous law enforcement personnel at the scene of the arrest site. They could be seen covering a white van with numerous stickers in its windows with a blue tarp.LOOK: High resolution photo shows political stickers covering windows of white van found near Plantation, Florida site where mail bombing suspect was arrestedhttps://t.co/QOC2JDvOIUpic.twitter.com/E72CUd0FSt — CBS News (@CBSNews) October 26, 2018More details are expected at a Department of Justice news conference Friday afternoon.
I am pleased to inform you that law enforcement has apprehended the suspect and has taken into him into custody,” President Donald Trump said. “These terrorizing acts are despicable and have no place in our country.” …… “We must never allow political violence to take root in America,” Trump added, “and I am committed to doing everything in my power to stop it.”Trump praised law enforcement for finding “a needle in the haystack.” The bottom line is that Americans must unify,” Trump said: “The good news is there is an individual in custody right now,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
The arrest comes just a few hours after emergency responders found a suspicious package addressed to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, care of CNN, where he is a contributor, at a mail facility in Midtown Manhattan:
Authorities shut down 52nd Street between 8th and 9th Avenues while they investigated the device found at the Radio City post office. Numerous emergency vehicles could be seen on the street and people were kept from the area: https://acenewsroom.wordpress.com/2018/10/26/urgent-us-law-enforcement-responding-to-suspicious-package-in-nyc-police-say-https-t-co-wlrcyh3wou-https-t-co-9t4pxzoorb/ “At approximately 8:15 a.m. an alert postal worker who was aware of a series of suspected pipe bombs in packages going through the mail recognized a package that postal workers across the country had been warned about and shown photographs of in the system here at Radio City station,” NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence & Counterterrorism John Miller said. “This area was secured while emergency service and the NYPD Bomb Squad responded. The package was isolated in the post office. The Bomb Squad was able to use their equipment to conduct an X-ray. Inside they saw what appears to be a pipe bomb consistent with other devices we’ve seen this week contained in a package consistent with the packaging we’ve seen this week.”
The package was safely removed and transported to Rodman’s Neck in the Bronx at around 10 a.m., though police warned the area would still have a strong police presence as the investigation continued.
Sources say the device has the same design according to the x ray and same packaging:Authorities currently believe the mailings were staggered, and the device sent to Clapper may have been sent after the others.Clapper, who has been outspoken against Trump, told CNN that the spate of suspicious packages will not silence critics of the administration, though he warns they should be very cautious…………………..“I’m really not surprised, and in some sense relieved my wife and I are away from home right now. This is definitely domestic terrorism, no question about it in my mind,” Clapper said. “I think anyone who has in any way been a critic, publicly been a critic of President Trump, needs to be on extra alert.”
Also Friday, investigators in Florida turned up another suspicious package targeting N.J. Sen. Cory Booker: The #FBI has confirmed an 11th package has been recovered in Florida, similar in appearance to the others, addressed to Sen. Cory Booker.
— FBI (@FBI) October 26, 2018The package targeting Booker was reportedly found at the Opa-locka mail facility in Florida, where sources tell CBS News some of the packages were processed.
Investigators have been focusing their search for clues there in the manhunt for whoever is behind the spate of mailings.Saddened and angered that an explosive device was sent to @CoryBooker’s office. @NJOHSP is working closely with federal, state, and local partners to monitor the situation and coordinate our response. Grateful to law enforcement for keeping us safe from these acts of terror — Governor Phil Murphy (@GovMurphy) October 26, 2018New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy tweeted he was “saddened and angered” to learn of the device sent to Booker: With addition of the devices sent to Clapper and Booker, 12 suspicious packages have been sent to ten prominent Democrats across the country: Both packages are similar to the previous packages targeting prominent Democrats.All of the packages had a return address of Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and federal officials confirm some of them originated in the state. They say postal inspectors have been poring through millions of pieces of mail, searching for similar packages.
“It’s devastating, deeply disturbing to have my name used in that way. As you know, we received one of the packages in our office, and obviously any of the packages that had bounced back would’ve come to the return address. So it’s disturbing, troubling, sinister,” Wasserman Schultz said.
“We are working quickly to process and analyze relevant information from the suspicious packages recovered over the last few days,” said Bill Sweeney, the assistant director in charge of the FBI New York.
The FBI asked for help from the public in the investigation, requesting people call 1-800-CALL-FBI or submit a tip online by clicking here. The NYPD urged New Yorkers who might have information to call 1-888-NYC-SAFE: The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is working closely with our law enforcement partners in this ongoing investigation,” a spokesperson for the United States Postal Service said. “Any reports of suspicious mailings are taken very seriously, as they may impact the safety of postal employees and disrupt the processing of mail. We strive to provide a safe and secure mail system, preserve the integrity of the mail, and, most importantly, ensure a safe environment for postal employees, Postal Service customers, and the American public.” The USPS said that it is employing a strategy that involves technology, screening and employee training to help keep the postal system safe.
As the FBI continues to warn more pipe bombs could be out there, false alarms have led to confusion. Sen. Dianne Feinstein and the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle were evacuated Thursday night, both due to suspicious packages that turned out to be false alarms.
The packages were addressed to people who have been critics of Trump, and the president has been critical of them, as well: Earlier Friday morning, the president tweeted, “Funny how lowly rated CNN, and others, can criticize me at will, even blaming me for the current spate of Bombs and ridiculously comparing this to September 11th and the Oklahoma City bombing, yet when I criticize them they go wild and scream, ‘it’s just not Presidential!’”
Funny how lowly rated CNN, and others, can criticize me at will, even blaming me for the current spate of Bombs and ridiculously comparing this to September 11th and the Oklahoma City bombing, yet when I criticize them they go wild and scream, “it’s just not Presidential!” — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 26, 2018
Trump also tweeted that he was concerned about how the recent spate of suspicious packages would impact Republican turnout at the elections.
Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this “Bomb” stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows – news not talking politics. Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 26, 2018
“Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this ‘bomb’ stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows – news not talking politics. Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!” Trump tweeted……….Two of the packages were sent to former Vice President Joe Biden……………This division, this hatred, this ugliness – it has to end. Words matter,” Biden said Thursday.
“This is at a torrid level that is just unpalatable,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday. “This is whipping up people, and you will see people respond.”………..We need a new political sensitivity that says ‘there are boundaries,’” Cuomo added: On Thursday morning, another device was discovered at the production offices of Robert De Niro in Tribeca………………….CBS2’s Mobile 2 camera recorded exclusive video as the NYPD loaded it onto a containment vehicle.
De Niro released a statement Friday calling on Americans to vote.
“I thank God no one’s been hurt, and I thank the brave and resourceful security and law enforcement people for protecting us,” De Niro said. “There’s something more powerful than bombs, and that’s your vote. People must vote!”
All of the parcels were sent in similar packaging, and the devices were made to appear like active bombs. None of them detonated, which experts say will be helpful in tracing where the materials came from: Investigators are working to determine whether the bombs were just poorly designed or if they were simply meant to scare the recipients.
“We are treating them as live devices,” said NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill.
The devices are now being examined at the FBI’s laboratory in Quantico, Virginia.

Law enforcement officers believe Kaitlyn is with her custodial father, Thomas Clarence Stofiel, age 44. At this time, officers and agents simply want to locate Kaitlyn to ensure that she is safe.
Stofiel’s truck was found in late February parked approximately one-half mile down the Mt. Wilson turn-off of Highway 26 (near milepost 76) on the Warm Springs Reservation. Neither Thomas nor Kaitlyn Stofiel has any known connection to the reservation other than the fact that the vehicle was found on the reservation. They were living in Portland most recently, and Kaitlyn was reportedly being home-schooled.
There have been no confirmed sightings of Kaitlyn or Thomas Stofiel in at least a week.
Thomas Stofiel may be distraught, is known to possess various weapons, and reportedly has survival skills.

The #FBI on Wednesday sent a security alert about the scam uncovered recently by a contractor in Massachusetts to contractors engaged in secret defense work.
An #FBI counterintelligence agent stated in the alert that the contractor reported “an individual posing as U.S. Navy officer” was issuing fake Navy contracts for computer and telecommunications equipment.
“Further investigation revealed several other reported incidents following a similar pattern where computers, telecommunication equipment, and export controlled technology were requested from cleared defense contractors and information technology companies,” stated the notice from FBI Agent Carmine Nigro of the Boston field office.
The contracts involved unsolicited email requests made by people who identified themselves as purchasing agents for the Navy, Army, and Air Force. The emails originated from email domains that appeared similar to official military email accounts. Among the false domains were “@navy-mil.us” and “@navy-mil.com.” The true Navy email domain is @navy.mil.
The email requests specified that the sensitive goods being contracted were to be shipped to non-military facilities including freight and shipping warehouses, commercial office space, and locations overseas—indicating a likely foreign intelligence service connection.
“The individual(s) involved appear to have knowledge and some degree of familiarity with U.S. Department of Defense purchasing procedures and documentation, and have listed legitimate Department of Defense facilities within the original request for information,” Nigro stated.
The Boston FBI office is investigating the contracting scam.
An FBI spokesman had no immediate comment.
The alert did not identify what nation’s intelligence service was behind the technology acquisition effort.
However, China’s spy services in the past have used email solicitation as part of a large-scale cyber espionage campaign targeting U.S. defense technology.
Counterintelligence experts say email solicitation is one of the main techniques used by foreign spies to obtain information and goods through the Internet.
However, posing as U.S. military officers engaged in contracting is a relatively new technique.
The fraudulent email operation is part of what the Pentagon calls cyber-enabled espionage threats to industry. The operations are designed to gather technology or sabotage defense contractors.
The Pentagon’s Defense Security Service states in a training brochure that 80 percent of foreign intelligence collection involves six methods.
They include requests for information and academic solicitation of information, computer network activity, targeting at conferences and conventions, corporate solicitation and marketing, foreign visits and specialized information elicitation, and agent recruitment.
The Defense Security Service has identified computer information and information security software as targets of foreign intelligence agencies.
Command, control, communications, and computers are “the backbone of almost all government functions from battlefield commanders to interagency communications,” the service said.
“Monitors, computers, printers, phones, radios, and data links are all necessary in this network-centric environment.”
Software targeted by foreign spies included computer-aided design software, modeling and simulation software, artificial intelligence, microelectronic design software, and databases.
The Defense Security Service is responsible for thwarting foreign spies and other security threats at some 10,000 defense contractors located at 13,000 facilities and encompassing 1.2 million people.
Jeffrey Burlette, a DSS counterintelligence official, said in a recent online webinar that cyber space has allowed foreign actors seeking to obtain U.S. defense secrets to mask their identities.
Past cases have involved email solicitations that appeared to be from Canada seeking to ship restricted U.S. items to Singapore with the eventual goal of sending them to Iran, Burlette said.
Goods and technology are often acquired through front companies and electronic communications, he said.
Another ruse is for foreign spies to request information through emails, establish a back-and-forth exchange, and then to provide a “weaponized document” that allows the spy to gain access to a defense contractor’s computer network.
“One thing you have to remember is these are adversaries that are state-sponsored, they’ve been classically trained in intelligence collection techniques in how to defeat certain security apparatus, and are very effective at their job,” Burlette said.
One damaging foreign espionage case involved a Chinese national, Su Bin, who stole military secrets related to the C-17 transport jet and the F-35 and F-22 stealth fighters.
Su pleaded guilty in March to conspiracy to hack into U.S. defense contractors’ computers, steal their data, and send it to China. He was sentenced to nearly four years in prison.
Most cyber espionage is carried out through what is called spear phishing, the use of emails to gain access to industry information. Others methods involve stealing computer access credentials, compromising websites, and exploiting social networking sites.

#AceNewsReport – Nov.06: Rep. Jason Chaffetz says FBI Director James Comey informs House members that agency has not changed its July conclusion regarding Hillary Clinton’s use of personal email server
In a letter to several committee chairmen released Sunday, FBI Director James Comey announced that the FBI has not changed its July conclusion regarding Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of State.
After announcing in July that he would not recommend criminal charges over the Democratic nominee’s use of the private server, the matter cropped up again late last month.
Comey sent a letter to lawmakers on Oct. 28 informing them that the bureau had found emails potentially relevant to the investigation into Clinton’s server and would be digging into them with just weeks to go until Election Day.
In the Sunday letter, Comey wrote: “Since my letter, the FBI investigative team has been working around the clock to process and review a large volume of emails from a device obtained in connection with an unrelated criminal investigation.
“During that process we reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State.
“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”
The emails were reportedly found during a separate FBI investigation into former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.). Weiner is the estranged husband of one of Clinton’s top aides, Huma Abedin.
In the week that followed the first letter, the Clinton campaign, Democratic lawmakers, and some Republicans criticized Comey, arguing he violated longstanding Justice Department practice not take steps in an investigation that could affect an election.
The FBI said it had some 650,000 new emails to sort through, raising questions about whether a conclusion would come before Election Day.
The ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, quickly responded to the news.
“As expected, the review of the additional emails has not changed the FBI’s original conclusion that no reasonable prosecutor would move forward with such a case,” he wrote.
“While the original letter should never have been sent so close to an election, the expeditious review of these emails should put to rest – once and for all – the irresponsible speculation indulged in by the Trump campaign and others. Voters can now make their decision based on the merits, and that decision should be simple: it is the choice between a woman superbly qualified to be commander in chief, and a man patently unfit for office.”
