Indictments issued in bomb plot

An Illinois man accused of plotting to destroy 48 Ottawa County churches with Molotov cocktails was indicted in federal court, assistant U.S. Attorney Matt Cyran said Thursday. Gregory Arthur Weiler II, 24, of Elk Grove Village, Ill., was arraigned Wednesday in federal court in Tulsa in connection with possession of an “incendiary bomb,” according to court documents. Weiler is accused of having handwritten notes in his motel room listing two Fairland and 46 Miami churches and how to make Molotov cocktails, according to an Ottawa County arrest affidavit. A Miami Legacy Inn & Suite maintenance man had reported finding a green military duffel bag containing 50 apparent Molotov cocktails and other explosive materials and items.



OKC man indicted in threats

A federal grand jury has indicted an Oklahoma City man accused of posting online threats to commit acts of violence in the central Wyoming city of Casper. Federal officials say Glenn Allen Kirkham authored a Jan. 14 online message board post that threatened to employ nontraditional weapons to prove that a “high score” could be achieved without assault rifles. The message mentioned Casper but did not specify a target or location. Kirkham told investigators the post was a “work of artistic falsehood,” court records show. Kirkham is charged with transmitting a threat by interstate communications. The offense could carry a sentence of up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Kirkham is free on a $5,000 unsecured bond.
