Law Enforcement Asking for Public's Cooperation Following Fort Riley Bombing Plot

Officials are asking Kansans to be diligent watching for threats following charges that a Topeka man was planning to bomb Fort Riley. Eric Jackson, with the FBI, says the charges show terrorism and terrorist recruitment on U.S. soil are a real threat.

“Now, more than ever, we must remain vigilant. We must continue to work with our law enforcement partners and we must rely on you, the community at large, to be attentive and to report suspicious activity,” says Jackson.

20-year-old John Booker has been charged with planning to suicide car bomb Fort Riley. He was actually planning the attack with FBI informants and what he thought was a bomb was fake.

Another Topeka man has been charged with not reporting the crime. The U.S. attorney’s office says 28-year-old Alexander Blair shared some extremist views with Booker and knew of the plot.
