Monday, Monday -November 15th

I was reading the daily Intel bulletins and found a story that sounded like a plot line for NCIS. Federal agents seized five pounds of C-4 military explosives from the home of a man, accused with a Navy SEAL and a Las Vegas associate, of smuggling machine guns from Iraq into the U.S. for sale and shipment to Mexico. Grenades and night-vision goggles also were found in the Colorado home of 34-year-old Richard Paul. Paul and Andrew Kaufman, 36, of Las Vegas, were arrested Wednesday and appeared Thursday before federal magistrate judges in Durango and Las Vegas on conspiracy charges. Each was ordered held in federal custody pending an evidentiary hearing.

They are accused of conspiring with Navy SEAL Nicholas Bickle of San Diego to smuggle and sell weapons to an undercover federal agent in Nevada and Colorado. "As long as they got paid ... they didn't care if the weapons wound up in Mexico or on the streets of Las Vegas," federal prosecutor Drew Smith told U.S. Magistrate Judge George Foley Jr. in Las Vegas.

Smith characterized Bickle, 33, as a "rogue Navy SEAL" -- an active-duty special warfare operator 1st class who Smith said also worked as a consultant on the Hollywood movie "Transformers 3." Bickle was arrested Wednesday and was due to appear Friday before a federal magistrate judge in San Diego. 

Police say a new father faces drug charges because he lit up a marijuana joint, instead of a cigar, to celebrate his child's birth at a western Pennsylvania hospital. Police aren't identifying the man found smoking the pot in a designated smoking area of Uniontown Hospital Tuesday morning, but say he'll face marijuana possession charges. Uniontown police Sgt. Jonathan Grabiak tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that a nurse smelled the marijuana when she took a cigarette break in the same area, and a hospital security guard called police about 3:20 a.m. Grabiak says the man told him, "I'm having a baby and wanted to get a buzz" and then pulled a bag of marijuana from his shoe. The man was released to a family member and made to leave the hospital.
