    Marines charged in bomb plot
    [email protected]

    TUNKHANNOCK TWP. - A Wyoming County-based conspiracy to bomb a North Carolina Marine base has been foiled, authorities said Saturday, with two Marines and a woman behind bars.
    "They planned to do as much damage as they possibly could," Wyoming County District Attorney George Skumanick Jr. said of the trio, one of whom is from Tunkhannock. He said their target was the U.S. Marine Corps base at Camp Lejeune, N.C.

    Arrested were Richard D. Morrison Jr., 21, of Tunkhannock; Richard Thomas Medders, 22, of Trussville, Ala.; and Janna Rebecca Lynn Smith, 27, of Richlands, N.C. The three have each been charged with conspiring to cause a risk or catastrophe, a first-degree felony, as well as lesser crimes.

    The men are active-duty Marines who have been on unexcused leave for two weeks, Skumanick said. The woman is an acquaintance of the two men, he said. The three suspects targeted the base as a whole - not a particular individual, he said.

    Loose lips ruined the conspiracy, Skumanick said. One of the defendants told an unidentified citizen about the bomb plans and showed the citizen detailed bomb-making information downloaded from the Internet.

    State police at Tunkhannock said they found the bomb-making information when they raided Morrison's mother's home on Lincoln in Tunkhannock Township at 11 p.m. Friday. The three went quietly, police said. State authorities were aided by four local police departments.

    No bomb-making materials were found. Attempts to reach Morrison's family were unsuccessful.

    Marine Staff Sgt. Jay Connolly, a spokesman at Camp Lejeune, said he learned of the situation from news reporters' phone calls but had no additional information on the matter.

    The trio was also charged with making terroristic threats and with making bomb threats. All are being held at the Wyoming County Correctional Facility for lack of $100,000 bail.

    "One thing I have learned in my 14 years is never to be surprised by anything," Skumanick said.
