Ill. man faces terrorism charge in Okla. bomb plot

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Illinois man faces terrorism charges in Oklahoma where police say he was assembling Molotov cocktails as part of a plot to blow up dozens of churches.

An affidavit filed Friday in Ottawa County District Court says 23-year-old Gregory Arthur Weiler II of Elk Grove Village, Ill., was arrested Thursday at a motel, where police found bomb-making materials along with torn bits of paper with directions for making Molotov cocktails.

The affidavit says when officers patched the pieces of paper together, they also found a list of 48 local churches, a hand-drawn map of the churches grouped and circled, and a written outline of Weiler’s plan to plant bombs.

Weiler was charged Friday with threatening to use an explosive or incendiary device and is being held without bond.
