    ****Update*****.........Area Man Arrested In Alleged Terror Plot

    CHICAGO --
    Authorities said a Rockford man is under arrest Friday in connection with an alleged terrorist plot to set off hand grenades in a shopping mall.

    An indictment was unsealed in federal court on Friday, alleging the plot on CherryVale Shopping Mall. The mall is located near the junction of Interstate 90 and Insterstate 39 in Rockford.

    Derrick Shareef, 22, was arrested Wednesday when he met with an undercover agent in a Rockford parking lot to trade a set of stereo speakers for four hand grenades and a handgun.


    According to an FBI affidavit, Shareef told an informant that he wanted to commit acts of violent jihad against civilians. The informant introduced Shareef to an undercover FBI agent who told the suspect he could get him hand grenades and a 9mm handgun, federal officials allege. When Shareef met with the agent, he was arrested.

    Shareef was charged with one count of attempting to damage or destroy a building by fire or explosion, and one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

    "Once the threat Shareef posed was detected by the Joint Terrorism Task Force, his activities and movements were under constant surveillance and there was no imminent risk to the public," said Robert D. Grant, Special Agent in-Charge of the Chicago Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

    Grant said the Joint Terrorism Task Force used an undercover agent, confidential sources and physical surveillance to track Shareef.

    Shareef was scheduled to appear in federal court later Friday.

    Yeah, target a mall, because they're such a NEST of important targets.

    Give him a fair trial; then shoot him.

    What kind of moron thinks that he can get four grenades and a gun for stereo speakers? Why not ask for a helocopter while he's at it?
    Eeesh.
