AP Sources: FBI Declined to Pursue NYC Bomb Plot

Monday, 21 Nov 2011 11:51 AM

 

NEW YORK (AP) — Two law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation of a New York City bomb plot say federal authorities declined to pursue the case.

The officials said on Monday that the NYPD sought to get the FBI involved two times as the investigation unfolded. One said that after reviewing the evidence, the FBI concluded the lone suspect didn't have the "predisposition or the ability" to carry out the plot.

The officials were not authorized to speak about the case and spoke on condition of anonymity. The FBI's New York office declined to comment on Monday.

Jose Pimentel is being held on state terrorism charges alleging he plotted to blow up police and post offices in New York City.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Sunday that federal officials were aware of the NYPD probe.
