Joseph Gargiulo Arrested for planning attacks on Mosques, Obama

A man has been arrested in Holliston, situated about 30 miles west of Boston for allegedly planning attacks on police stations, mosques and President Obama.

Joseph Gargiulo, 40, had apparently stockpiled a significant arsenal of weapons, ammunition and chemicals for hand-made explosives.

The FBI said in a press release on Monday that “In recent days, the FBI learned that Garguilo had stated that he wanted to attack a mosque and/or kill President Obama,”

The FBI had learned of the stockpile of weapons from a female acquaintance of Garguilo`s who reportedly told police that "he will plant bombs in police stations and kill as many homeland security officers as he can before they kill him,".

The suspect is charged with being a prohibited person in possession of ammunition as he was currently under an active restraining order under which he was banned from possessing firearms or ammunition due to “substantial likelihood of immediate danger of abuse.”
