(Liberty Bell) – The Iranian government has pledged revenge for the elimination of their top general, Qassem Soleimani, at the behest of President Donald Trump.
They have put a bounty on his head, and many rumors have been circulating and even hard intelligence surfacing showing that lone wolf jihadis or sleeper cells in the US may soon try to answer the call.
Palm Beach police have revealed that an Iranian national was detained on Flagler Memorial Bridge just a few miles away from the president’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
The Iranian had with him knives, a machete, a pick ax, and $22,000 in US currency, according to the Palm Beach Daily.
He also had a parked car at the Palm Beach International airport that was examined by a bomb unit to search for explosives.
Palm Beach Daily reported:
A man arrested by Palm Beach Police this morning had $22,000, a machete and a pick ax, in addition to knives in his possession, according to an officer with the department.
The man, who was identified by his passport as an Iranian national, also had a car parked at Palm Beach International Airport, the officer said.
The department is working with other federal partners in the investigation, the officer said.
The man was arrested just over the Flagler Memorial Bridge at Bradley Park. Initial reports said he had several knives on him. No details are available on what led to the man being brought to officers’ attention.
The law enforcement officer initially told the Daily News that the man appeared to be homeless or without a known address.
A Daily News photographer who arrived on the scene saw the man, who also had camping gear, being arrested by three Palm Beach Police officers and two plainclothes officers, who he was told were from another department.
Earlier this week, a Florida security guard was arrested for threatening to kill President Trump in retaliation for Soleimani, who he described as his “leader.”
