Russians with Shovel, Wire Cutters Arrested

Three Russian guys were arrested and released in Georgia.

Effingham County sheriff deputies have reported the early Sunday morning arrest of three men to the federal Joint Terrorism Task Force.

Deputies reported the men, who were inside a 1995 NissanPathfinder, had a machete, shovel, wire cutters and ski masks. One man also had black silk stockings in his front left pocket.

Arrested were Evgeniy Luzhetskiy, of Kazakhastan Nail Idiatullin and Rustem Ibragimov of Russia. All three reported they lived in Charleston, S.C., deputies reported.

The men were all charged with possession of tools during the commission of a crime.

The three were released after being interviewed by task force members, Ehsanipoor said.

Sounds like they weren’t inside the fence yet, and its not very clear what their intentions were, but there doesn’t seem to be any tools or weapons for sabotage.   At least they didn’t have any cameras. It is interesting to note that this seems to be a coal plant.

Perhaps they were out to steal a lump of coal for Putin’s Christmas present.
