An ex-General Electric employee from New York has been indicted on federal charges of plotting to use a weapon of mass destruction.
Glendon Scott Crawford, 49, was arrested with Eric Feight, 54, in June after the FBI alleged the pair tried to sell a homemade weapon of mass destruction to Jewish groups and a branch of the KKK.
The men are accused of trying to create a remote controlled weapon that would emit radioactive waves that would cause those around the device to die from radiation poisoning within days.
On Thursday a federal grand jury charged Crawford was attempting to produce and use a radiological device, conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, and distribution of information relating to weapons of mass destruction.
Crawford's role was to design and build the radiation device and its power supply, according to a federal complaint.
The remote controlled aspect of the device had been tested, but a radiation source had not been secured, according to the FBI report seen by the Times Union.
The FBI started investigating Crawford in April 2012, after he allegedly approached Schenectady's Congregation Gates of Heaven synagogue.

In the Adams family cartoon book the man in the Patent
office is aiming a futuristic device out the window at
the street below and is saying, “Death Ray fiddlesticks,
why it doesn’t even slow them up.”
Sounds like he basically had a TV remote. Period.
Maybe he found an old copy of Tesla’s blueprint for his ‘Death-Ray’?
The KKK Took My Death Ray Away.
