Two New York men are accused in a bizarre terror plot involving a mobile x-ray.
Glendon Crawford and Eric Feight were arrested Tuesday after an undercover operation by the Albany FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.
Law enforcement sources say the two planned to use a homemade x-ray machine to attack high-ranking government officials and other targets with radiation.
Beginning in April 2012, authorities received information that Crawford was searching for people at local Jewish organizations to help him build a device capable of killing human targets silently from a distance.
John Duncan, Executive Assistant US Attorney, said, "it would be capable of inflicting death on humans if used in the fashion for which it was designed. As I said, it was designed to be mobile, it was designed to have a remote power source and as the defendants have alleged, the particular mechanism to turn it on remotely and turn it off remotely so they would not be in the area when this device would be turned on directed at targets."
The two were charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists.
If convicted, each faces up to 15 years in prison, and $250,000 fine and five years of supervised release.
