This seems like something you would only see in the movies or a crime show but it was a plot that unfolded right here in Hoosick Falls. Fortunately, there was an anonymous tip to the Albany FBI that thwarted a murder-for-hire plot of two local residents.
When I saw this story I remembered that we were told about the FBI involvement in this case. We were shown the actual damage that this bomb caused and how they were called in. It was shocking to learn that it happened in Watervliet.
I am taking an FBI Citizens Academy course and was fascinated to learn about a lead the FBI in Albany received. The tipster thought he saw someone resembling Brian Laundrie in the backyard of a Capital Region home. We learned in class how the FBI was called in and what steps they took to find out if they had their man.
I am convinced that someday I will apprehend a fugitive on the run. I have watched all of the true-crime shows and feel like I know some of the ins and outs of criminal minds. When I saw that there is an FBI citizens academy being offered this fall, I knew that this is right up my alley. Are you like me? Let's take this course together.
Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse has been no stranger to our local newspapers since being elected back in 2015. While he's denied the allegations lobbied against during his term as a public official, things reached a boiling point this morning. It's being reported that the Cohoes mayor was arrested this morning by the FBI.
Every so often, we hear about an ATM that was somehow hacked locally and it usually catches us by surprise. Now, the FBI is warning us that a bank heist is likely soon and will affect millions globally.
I'm sure you get calls all of the time from numbers you don't know. Now, a new scam is going around where someone is pretending to be from the FBI! Before you give out your information, this is what it looks like.
