Intel Briefing – March 2012


Patrol cars targeted in break-ins; weapons taken.
Law enforcement officials believe an organized group is responsible for stealing weapons, bulletproof vests, and ammunition from several patrol cars in several counties in Alabama, the Gadsden Times reported February 6. At least 11 weapons, including AR-15 assault rifles, were taken from law enforcement vehicles since December 2011, the sheriff said. Seven patrol vehicles were broken into, including five the weekend of February 4. The weapons were stored in the patrol cars’ trunks, and the cars’ windows were broken out to gain access to open the trunk. The vehicles broken into over the weekend were from one side of the county to the other, prompting law enforcement officials to believe the group split up and hit some of the vehicles about the same time.

The U.S. President imposes freeze on Iran property in U.S.
The White House moved to enforce tightened sanctions against Iran February 6 because of the country’s suspect nuclear program, freezing all property of the Central Bank of Iran, other Iranian financial institutions, and the Iranian government in the United States. The new restrictions also raised new warnings to financial institutions in other nations that they could face big penalties in the United States if they did business with Iran’s central bank. The actions were announced in an executive order signed by the U.S. President that started the enforcement process for a tough measure he signed into law at the end of 2011. In a statement, the White House said the executive order “re-emphasizes this administration’s message to the government of Iran — it will face ever-increasing economic and diplomatic pressure until it addresses the international community’s…concerns regarding the nature of its nuclear program.” Many countries buy oil from Iran through its central bank, and their financial institutions could be blocked from the American market if they continue to do so.

Hackers post W.Va. police officers’ personal info.
Hackers affiliated with the Anonymous hacking group obtained more than 150 police officers’ personal information from an old Web site for the West Virginia Chiefs of Police Association and posted it online, the Associated Press reported February 8. The association’s president told the Charleston Gazette the FBI is investigating. He said a group called CabinCr3w hacked the site February 6 and obtained the home addresses, home phone numbers, and cellphone numbers of current and retired police chiefs. The association has a new Web site, but members’ information was stored on the old Web site’s database. In an online message by CabinCr3w addressed to “citizens of West Virginia,” the group said it has been monitoring cases of police brutality.
