From the Cincinnati Post:
"DAYTON, Ohio - A man accused of putting envelopes containing a white powder inside about 30 residential mailboxes was identified from an image taken by a grocery store security camera.
Brian Beeson, 25, of Centerville, made his first court appearance Tuesday on federal charges of threatening to use a biological weapon and threatening to use a weapon of mass destruction.
Federal agents have accused Beeson of placing the envelopes in residential roadside mailboxes last week in Centerville, Miami Township and Washington Township.
The outside of the envelopes said "Merry Christmas," "Happy Holidays," "You're a winner," and "Just for you," while greeting cards inside contained the powder and messages such as "Now you are sick," "Enough to infect you" and "You're infected," the FBI said.
One of the envelopes was found at the home of Beeson's mother, Yevetta Castiglione, FBI Special Agent Michael Wiggins said in the affidavit for search and arrest warrants filed in federal court.
Tests on the powder determined it was not dangerous, the FBI said.
The greeting cards, made by Hallmark, could be purchased at several stores in the Dayton area. A customer at a Kroger in Centerville bought two packages of the greeting cards and a pack of 10 disposable gloves Dec. 18, the day before the first card was found in a mailbox, Wiggins said in the affidavit.
U.S. attorneys said they will ask for a mental examination of Beeson, who faces up to 25 years to life in prison if convicted."
Wow... Brian Beeson. Sounds like a real nice guy! I hope he gets at least some prison time for such a mean-spirited and cruel stunt.
Which reminds me about the main intent of terrorists, to terrorize. If baking powder will do the trick why spend the money on real anthrax?
The question is, why did he buy the gloves? Did he think he had the real deal? If so he certainly is in a whole heap of trouble.
