NEW YORK (PIX11) – The FBI unsealed Wednesday a federal complaint against two New York men, accusing them of designing a deadly, mobile radiation-emitting device that they tried to sell to Jewish groups.
The device was intended to be a truck-mounted radiation particle weapon that could be remotely controlled and capable of aiming a lethal beam at human targets. The concept was that victims would eventually die of radiation poisoning.
49-year-old Glendon Crawford, an industrial mechanic with General Electric and a self-proclaimed member of the KKK, is accused of trying to sell the device to an Albany-area synagogue. He is said to have asked to speak with a person who might be willing to help him with a type of technology that could be used by Israel to defeat its enemies. His friend, 54-year-old Eric Feight, was named as a co-conspirator.
The synagogue called the FBI and a year-long undercover investigation led to the arrests.
