RIDGEWOOD, N.J., Nov. 18 (UPI) -- An out-of-work physician was arrested after chemicals that could be used to make bombs were found at his New Jersey home, authorities said Saturday. Roberto Rivera, 60, of Ridgewood, who had voiced support for the Occupy movement last year, was charged with recklessly creating a risk of widespread injury and unlawful possession of a destructive device, a large-capacity ammunition magazine and a stun gun, The (Bergen County) Record reported.
Rivera also was found to have assault rifles and other weapons in his home, which police searched Friday night, Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli said. His bail was set at $1 million, the newspaper said. Authorities said Rivera has a license to practice medicine in New York state, The Record said. Rivera's license lists an address in Yonkers in New York City, the newspaper said.
DAILY MAIL UK...Police had initially responded to the Rivera home after receiving a report that potentially hazardous materials might be at the residence. Rivera, who is currently unemployed, had allegedly told his girlfriend that he planned to build a bomb, though had not selected a target.
The Bergen County Record reported that Rivera had been involved in the Occupy Wall Street movement and was included in a photo spread for Bloomberg News on the movement, that launched at Zuccotti Park in downtown Manhattan last year.
In a photo of a man named Roberto Rivera, described as being from Yonkers, he declares 'I'm glad that at last the youth of America is able to stand on two feet and take a position that millions of people around the world have taken that they will not be intimidated by the capitalist free market paradigm and they will fight against gross inequality in distribution of income and assets.'
MORE OCCUPY BOMB PLOTS: In Cleveland the FBI announced on May 1 that “five self-proclaimed anarchists conspired to develop multiple terror plots designed to negatively impact the greater Cleveland metropolitan area.” The FBI had proof that the five were nabbed just as they attempted to blow up a bridge the night before using “inoperable” explosives supplied to them by an undercover FBI employee.
The FBI thwarted the deadly plans of Brandon Baxter, 20; Anthony Hayne, 35; Joshua Stafford, 23; Connor Stevens, 20; and Douglas Wright, 26, the goons seen above. The plot began last fall after Doug Wright discussed deploying smoke bombs as a decoy while individuals toppled bank signs from skyscrapers in downtown Cleveland, and evolved with FBI planning into using “C4 plastic explosive devices” to demolish a bridge connecting the Ohio communities of Brecksville and Sagamore Hills.
Then on May 19, the day before thousands marched peacefully in Chicago to protest NATO-led wars, the Illinois State Attorney hit three men with charges of terrorism for allegedly plotting to use “destructive devices”, gas bombs, against targets ranging from Chicago police stations to the home of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, quote “DID YOU EVER SEE A COP ON FIRE, LOL“.
