Brecksville, Ohio - On Monday, April 30, 2012, FBI Agents arrested 5 men in connection with a domestic terrorism plot. As the FBI reported, the intent of the plot was to detonate explosives in attempt to damage the route 82 bridge in Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP). Agents from the FBI contacted National Park Service Law Enforcement Rangers during the course of the investigation and the two agencies worked together to ensure park resources and park visitors were not at risk during the operation.
At no time were the Brecksville Station or the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad considered targets for the plot.
The area around the bridge is popular with fisherman, bird watchers, hikers, and cyclists and every effort was made to ensure that park visitors were never exposed to unnecessary hazards. The National Park Service applauds the work of the Bureau and all of the other law enforcement agencies involved in successfully apprehending these suspects.
