A man intending to throw an explosive device into a South Florida Synagogue has been arrested by the FBI, WSVN reports.
According to law enforcement sources, the FBI set up a sting to thwart what they described as a terror attack at the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center, Friday evening. Sources said agents posing as terrorists were able to stop the suspect, who, they said, may have converted to Islam.
Sources told 7News they are concerned about this case because the suspect wanted to take some type of explosive device and chuck it over the wall. Friday was the next-to-last day of Passover, and the center was crowded with people observing the holiday.
The 40-year-old James Medina, who self-identifies as “James Muhammad,” appeared in court Monday. Medina has had several brushes with the law for minor offenses, the Miami Herald reports.
