Authorities probing if Florida man has ties to terrorism

A joint terrorism task force is investigating whether a 21-year-old man has connections to terrorism after he was arrested at the New Port Richey, Florida home he shares with his parents.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said on Twitter Wednesday it would be foolish for him to say the case is "definitely not connected to terrorism."

Paramedics were called to the home Wednesday morning after Sherif Elganainy's father became unresponsive. He was taken to a hospital.

His mother called deputies to ask them to check out suspicious fumes she said were in her home.

The sheriff's office says "suspicious materials" were in Elganainy's bedroom.

When deputies attempted to arrest Elganainy, he became violent.

Very uninformative. But maybe he was planning to blow something up with natural gas cylinders.

Good catch. I read it as Sheriff and thought ‘Huh?’. Just another innocent guy experimenting, right? Perhaps he was just trying to make a clock........

There are materials in there that give us concern,” Nocco said. “His actions, statements that he’s made, previous things that have occurred in this house, that have now been reported today to us, give us a lot of concern.”

Two deputies taken to the hospital for injuries. Were they too afraid of repercussions that they failed to shoot the guy? PC is going to get us all killed. No way should this have been carried out so long. Having the neighbors in lock down when they may have been blown up? No, you lead the out the back to safety far away from potential danger.

Does the Florida man have a name? Probably Amish.
