CLEVELAND —One of five men arrested in an alleged Ohio bridge bombing plot signed the lease for the warehouse that’s home to about a dozen protesters from the Occupy Cleveland movement, which is working to get the man’s name removed from the lease, a group spokesman said.
The $600 monthly rent for the warehouse was paid to a landlord, not to suspect Anthony Hayne, group spokesman Joseph Zitt told The Plain Dealer.
“We needed a name on the lease, and he agreed to be it,” Zitt said.
Hayne, 35, is among the five suspects accused of trying to bomb a highway bridge south of Cleveland using devices that were actually fake bombs provided through an undercover FBI employee. The others are Douglas L. Wright, 26, of Indianapolis; Brandon L. Baxter, 20, of nearby Lakewood; Connor C. Stevens, 20, of suburban Berea; and Joshua S. Stafford, 23, of Cleveland.
