ATF AND RCMP FOIL INTERNATIONAL BOMBING PLOT

Washington, D.C—On August 18, 1999, following an 18 month
investigation by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF)
and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Alfred Heinz Reumayr, a
50 year old Canadian citizen, was arrested and charged by Canadian authorities
on charges of unlawful possession of explosives for criminal purposes.
These charges involved Reumayr’s solicitation of a U.S citizen to bomb
and disrupt various energy systems in the United States and Canada. The
FBI and the U.S Customs Service later joined in the investigation.

During this investigation, no explosive devices were completed
and the public was never in danger.

ATF currently has a Federal arrest warrant for Reumayr
for Federal Explosive violations in the U.S Judicial District of New Mexico,
which is a result of this joint investigation.

This investigation continuing.
