[I sent this off to a certain law enforcement agency a few days ago. Don't really expect to hear back from them, so I figured I would just post it in case someone has a better idea of how to get the attention of the appropriate people re this business.]
The Guardian carried this story:
Immigrant Accused of Weapons-Smuggle Plot
NEW YORK (AP) - Federal prosecutors charged Tuesday that a 26-year-old Armenian immigrant led a plot to sell military weapons to an FBI informant posing as a middleman for terrorists.
U.S. Attorney David Kelley said in an interview Tuesday that Solomonyan, his South African partner, Christiaan Dewet Spies, and
Solomonyan entered the United States six years ago on a cultural exchange visa claiming he was a religious worker for the Church of Scientology, according to law enforcement officials, also speaking on condition of anonymity. He was living on the proceeds of Medicare fraud and other scams as he carried out the weapons scheme, the officials said.
I think I know how Solomonyan was able to stay in the US when he should have been deported by the INS after overstaying his visa. I expect, in fact, that he is on a list I know about of 126 or 127 other people who used the same method to outwit the INS.
God knows what the rest of them are doing.
Be glad to give you the story details and who was involved if you want them.
If you don't, I understand. As a law enforcement friend of mine says, "Nobody wants to life the tail of a skunk."
