The mystery into the Missouri Muslims buying up hundreds of cellphones from several Walmart stores, just took a concerning turn for the worst, because of what was discovered buried near where the purchases were made. One alert man noticed something strange about the ground and called police to the scene, but nobody was prepared for what was found right under foot.
Since the suspicious activity first leaked last week, the investigation has progressively revealed worse details, working retroactively to bring to light every alarming thing that happened before two men were stopped in a Lebanon Walmart. Now, it seems to have reach a head, after an incident in October provides some potential answers as to what is being plotted from the center of our country, and what targets are at imminent risk.
A man who was hunting in the Mark Twain National Forest, just 30 minutes from Lebanon, was about to set up camp in a spot he uses each season, when he noticed something about the ground that didn’t seem right. After poking around at the ground a bit, he got concerned about what he found and urgently called police. The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department came running, bringing along with them a massive team of expert personnel they called in for assistance.
Officers found a huge cache of “extremely volatile” explosives, which police described to be of a style “that could not be purchased for recreational use.” This suggests that the extensive supply was all homemade pipe bombs or other IEDs, created and collected with a specific plan in mind. The stock was so dangerous that it couldn’t be safely detonated without the help of the Explosive Ordinance Disposal Unit (EOD), the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s EOD Unit, and the Waynesville Rural Fire Department, KY3 reported. The exact location, as well as recent developments, make this discovery even more concerning than what law enforcement knew at the time.
Where the bombs were found was not only by the Walmart stores where all the throwaway phones were purchased by Muslim men, who still remain at large, but also the next closest wooded area to where a man was spotted by a trail camera and witness while acting strangely. After the explosive stash was found and destroyed, perhaps those who put it there are trying to restock it now and have found a new hiding place for it in the wooded area of Madison County, where the man was seen dressed in black, acting weird in the woods.
Terrorists would want to hide their stock like this to not get caught with it in their cars or homes, foiling their plans, especially with a stash of hundreds of untraceable cellphones. Also, these locations they’re picking could be central for all those who are part of the plan to carry out an attack that could be underway. Both aforementioned wooded areas are within close proximity to St. Louis, which might be the intended target.
With so many suspicious instances in one small area, it can’t be a coincidence. Especially since each piece fits together in a puzzle that looks a lot like terrorism on American soil.
