Illinois man faces terrorism charge
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Illinois man with a long history of mental illness has been charged with plotting to attack dozens of churches after a hotel maintenance worker in Oklahoma spotted the makings of Molotov cocktails in a trash bin and alerted police.
Gregory Arthur Weiler II, 23, of Elk Grove Village, has been charged under a strict Oklahoma anti-terrorism law put in place after the federal building bombing in Oklahoma City in 1995. The law makes terrorism hoaxes a crime as well as any effort to plan or help plan an act of terrorism.
Weiler was arrested Thursday after a worker at a motel in Miami, Okla., spotted bottles and other suspicious items in a garbage bin, according to a police affidavit.
