Oklahoma City bank explosion plot foiled by undercover operation

Oklahoma City bank explosion plot foiled by undercover operation”

An undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent posed as someone who could help Varnell to blow up the building, according to a complaint filed Sunday in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma. We believe our BancFirst downtown Oklahoma City building was a random and convenient selection by the suspect. American terrorist Timothy McVeigh was convicted of blowing up the building in 1995 killing 168 people including 19 children and babies in the daycare center on the second floor.

23-year-old Jerry Varnell was arrested after he attempted to detonate what he believed was van full of explosives parked next to BancFirst in Oklahoma City.

The complaint says Varnell prepared a statement to be posted on social media after the explosion, helped assemble what he thought was the explosive device, and helped load it into what he believed was a stolen van.

According to a criminal complaint filed in the case, Mr. Varnell was angry at the government and had hoped to start a revolution.

In a statement released to CBS affiliate KWTV, BancFirst officials said they were cooperating with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Mandatory minimum sentence puts him in jail for at least five years.

Varnell heads to federal court at 3 p.m. for an initial appearance on charges of attempting to use explosives to destroy a building in interstate commerce.

Varnell's arrest is expected to be announced later on Monday. According to the federal complaint, he claimed in a conversation with the informant that he was a "Three Percenter", a reference to a patriot group that opposes the federal government. He recently posted a photo of himself with the rainbow flag superimposed over the image.

The woman told The Daily Caller that she and Varnell broke up a few weeks ago and only dated for a short time.
