Terry Lee Loewen

December 14, 2013 by  

Terry Lee Loewen, Federal officials arrested 58-year-old Terry Lee Loewen on Friday as part of a sting operation into an alleged plot to detonate a car bomb at the Wichita, Kansas airport.

The criminal complaint contains parts of conversations between Loewen, who was reportedly self-radicalized, and an FBI agent who was working undercover.

He also mentions “Inspire” magazine, a radical Islamist magazine accessible online that Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev allegedly read to learn how to make the pressure-cooker bombs used in the attack.

Loewen allegedly “spent months developing a plan to use his access card to the airport to drive a carload of explosives to the terminal,” federal officials said at a press conference Friday.

When he was arrested, he was attempting to deliver the vehicle full of explosives.

No one was ever in any real danger, though, officials said. The operation was a sting and the explosives weren’t real.
