Man indicted for trying to development lethal radiation device

ALBANY – A Galway, New York has been indicted on three federal felony counts related to his development of and plans to use a remotely-operated radiation-emitting device to kill human targets. The indictment, filed in U.S. District Court in Albany, charges Glendon Scott Crawford, 49, with:

  • Attempting to produce and use a radiological dispersal device
  • Conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction
  • Distributing information relating to weapons of mass destruction

Crawford faces possible life in prison.

The charges followed an investigation by the Albany FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force that began in April 2012 when authorities received information that Crawford had approached local Jewish organizations seeking out individuals who might offer assistance in helping him with a type of technology that could be used against people he perceived as enemies of Israel.

Crawford and codefendant Eric Feight were arrested on June 18, 2013 and have been held in custody since then.
