Document: Vegas man allegedly planned to attack McDonald’s
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A court document says a Las Vegas man accused of plotting to firebomb a synagogue or bar catering to LGBT customers also allegedly planned an attack on a fast-food restaurant.
U.S. Magistrate Nancy Koppe wrote in a detention order for 23-year-old Conor Climo on a weapons charge that he had written plans to attack a McDonald’s “and talked about the attack as a suicide mission.”
Climo’s defense attorneys did not immediately respond to emails Saturday about the allegation contained in the order signed Aug. 9 by Koppe and made public Wednesday.
Climo was arrested Aug. 8 by an FBI-led anti-terrorism task force.
Court documents allege Climo communicated by encrypted internet chat with people identified as white supremacists, and told an FBI informant that he was scouting places to attack.
