CHICAGO — A suburban Chicago mother of seven is accused of urging Facebook followers to kill a gang member-turned-FBI mole for his role in a sting that put an associate of hers behind bars on charges he tried to sell semi-automatic rifles stolen from a freight train, court documents show.

Iesha Stanciel, 38, faces federal cyber-stalking charges for the threats, as well as a gun charge after she was arrested carrying a bag containing one of the brand new AR 15-type assault rifles stolen from the Chicago train that had stopped overnight at a Norfolk Southern yard on Sept. 18, 2016, according to a federal complaint examined by The Associated Press this week.

Authorities have never publicly announced any arrests related to the theft of the six new Smith Wesson-made MP assault rifles

Why HAS the FBI arrested the computer genius who saved the NHS? He is accused of cyber crime and is facing jail in …

With its elegant decor and soft lighting, the ambience in The Club lounge, at Las Vegas International Airport, is usually serene. On August 2, however, passengers waiting to board Virgin Atlantic’s afternoon flight to London Gatwick were disturbed by an extraordinary scene.

Emerging stealthily into the room, plainclothes FBI officers approached a young, scruffily dressed British man, who had been sampling the complimentary refreshments and amusing himself by posting sardonic messages on Twitter.

They were from the agency’s Cyber Crime Unit, and told him he was suspected of various serious offences, arrested him, snapped his wrists in handcuffs, and marched him off to be interrogated.

Follow CBSMIAMI.COM: Facebook | Twitter

PINELLAS PARK (CBSMiami/AP) — Explicit text messages sent to female real estate agents in the Pinellas Park area have reportedly been traced back to a homeless man.

Detectives say there were 21 alleged cases of unwanted communications sent to real estate agents in Pinellas County on the state’s west coast.

The Pinellas Sheriff’s Office said Sunday they were able to identify the suspect, 48-year-old Reginald Bernard Nelson, as the man sending the explicit messages.

The sheriff’s office said Nelson admitted he would find the numbers for female realtors in local advertisements and send inappropriate messages.

He faces one count of felony cyber stalking and investigators say more charges are pending. He’s being held without bail in the Pinellas County Jail.

Judge Sets $30K Bail for Cyber Expert Accused in Malware Case

LAS VEGAS — A U.S. judge in Law Vegas set a $30,000 bail on Friday for a famed British cyber security researcher accused of advertising and selling malicious code used to pilfer banking and credit card information.

Marcus Hutchins, 23, gained international celebrity status within the hacker community in May when he was credited with neutralizing the global “WannaCry” ransomware attack.

His attorney, Adrian Lobo, told reporters he would not be released on Friday because the clerk’s office for the court closed before his defense team could post the bail.
