Traffic Stop Thwarts Potential Terrorist Attack by Yemeni National in California
On September 18, 2018 the Brea Police Department stopped Saleh Ali aka Ali Saleh because his black Toyota Corolla had expired registration tags. During the stop the police alleged that Ali had a suspended drivers license and ordered his car towed. Procedure mandates an inventory search of the vehicle before being towed so the defendant’s property is properly secured and accounted. During the inventory search, two small destructive devices in specialized containers covered in shrapnel were found and contained explosive material.
A bomb squad investigated and deemed the area safe, as the suspect was arrested. Michelle Van Der Linden, spokesperson for the Orange County District Attorney, said the devices, IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices), destroyed by the bomb squad would readily explode when connected with a source for ignition, either that be fire or current.
This incident has gone unreported in the national media, even though a Yemeni national in America has allegedly been found with two explosive devices. Radical Islamic Terrorism is very real and in our neighborhoods. California is a sanctuary state and they value being politically correct rather more than the safety of Americans.
“This is what Governor Jerry Brown, Lt Governor Newsome and AG Becerra allow to enter our state and our country. This is exactly what they want bombs going off in public spaces.” said Air Force Veteran De Guchy who is a resident of Los Angeles, California.
Ali is currently being housed at Orange County Jail and the investigation is ongoing and has been accused of possessing IEDs, charged on FOUR (4) felony counts and being held on a $500,000 bond as per local KTLA news report. His pre-trial hearing is set for today, September 28, 2018 and the clerk at the country jail confirmed that Saleh Ali is a Yemeni. BLP will update as more information comes in.
