In The Region:

The FBI says five anarchists tried to blow up a bridge in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park Monday. Their target was the Route 82 bridge, which crosses over a ravine and river near Sagamore Hills, in one of the most popular parts of the park. 

The park’s Chief Ranger Chris Ryan says the FBI notified the park administrators of the bomb plot, and his rangers were on hand to assist.

“Well, one of the things we did [was] make sure that there were no protection rangers in the Station Road parking lot, so that if the suspects came into the area [wouldn’t] get spooked if they saw law enforcement. And then there were some other areas. We’re very familiar with the terrain there, and so we suggested some ideas to them.” 

Ryan says the park believes there are no lingering threats to any part of the park, and he does not plan to change its security procedures.

 

The suspects are five men, ages 20-35. An informant alerted the FBI last fall to threats they’re accused of making. And the feds say they provided what the men thought was C-4 explosive, which the suspects tried to trigger remotely.
