What could go wrong? via 7 Caught Trespassing At Quabbin Reservoir; Patrols Stepped Up Across State « CBS Boston.
BELCHERTOWN (CBS) – Shortly after midnight Tuesday, seven people were caught trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir.
State Police say the five men and two women are from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore, and “cited their education and career interests” for being in the area. The men told police they were chemical engineers and recent college graduates.
If they already graduated what educational interest would they have? Possibly similar to the Muslim biochem student arresting plotting to blow up an Amtrak train a few weeks ago? Or the Muslim arrested in New York last week who Plotted To Poison The Air Or Water Supply?
The Quabbin, in Belchertown, is one of the country’s largest man-made public water supplies. Boston’s drinking water comes from the Quabbin and the Wachusett Reservoirs.
State Police say there were no warrants or advisories on any of the individuals and “there was no evidence that the seven were committing any crime beyond the trespassing.”
All seven were allowed to leave and will be summonsed to court for trespassing. The FBI is investigating and routine checks of public water supplies have been increased following the incident.
The seven individuals currently live in Amherst, Cambridge, Sunderland, Northampton and New York City. Police have not released their names because a court date has not been set.
In case you missed it:
A man traveling with an altered Saudi Arabian passport was in federal court Monday after a pressure cooker was discovered in his luggage at the Detroit airport over the weekend.
The man, identified in a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court as Hussain Al Kwawahir, made his initial court appearance Monday on charges of altering a passport and lying to customs officials.
Two pressure cooker bombs were used in the attacks that killed three people and injured more than 250 others last month at the Boston Marathon.
Al Kwawahir, 33, wasn’t charged with any terrorism-related offenses, however, and U.S. officials told NBC News they were handling the incident as simply a documents case.
The incident occurred Saturday at Detroit Metro Airport in Romulus, Mich., authorities said. When customs officials noticed that a page had been removed from Al Kwawahir’s passport, they examined his luggage and found the pressure cooker, the complaint said.
Al Kwawahir, who was flying into Detroit from Amsterdam, told agents he didn’t know how or why the page had been removed.
A Saudi student living in Michigan was questioned in his home by FBI agents after neighbours saw him carrying a pressure cooker and called the police.
Talal al Rouki had been cooking a traditional Saudi Arabian rice dish called kabsah and was carrying it to a friend’s house.
An FBI agent said: ‘You need to be more careful moving around with such things, Sir’
It’s getting surreal. Is there a true leader in U.S. government? Anywhere?
