Inmate Convicted For Bomb Threats On Government Offices ‘For The Cause Of The Islamic State’

November 10, 2019

Noah D. Stirn, 24, pled guilty today to federal charges related to threatening communications involving explosives and mailing communications threatening to injure others.

Stirn has been in federal custody since his arrest by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on these federal charges earlier this year.

An investigation revealed that between April 22 and May 20, 2019, Stirn mailed or attempted to mail approximately 21 letters to courthouses and government offices throughout Northern Florida, threatening serious harm or death by way of explosives. These letters included ones mailed to the United States Courthouse and the Social Security Administration in Pensacola, as well as to the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee. The letters specifically claimed that C4 plastic explosives had been placed in each of the threatened buildings. Stirn’s letters asserted that he was not pleased with the federal government and his actions were “for the cause of the Islamic State.”

In some instances, the threatening letters led full buildings to be evacuations and bomb-sniffing K9 units to be deployed. Stirn was an inmate at the Blackwater Correctional Facility in Milton when he engaged in these criminal acts.

“Protecting the security of our government agencies and employees and the services they provide to the public is paramount to maintaining a functioning society. My office is grateful to the men and women of law enforcement who help keep us all secure every day,” U.S. Attorney Keefe said.

Stirn will be sentenced on these charges on January 24, 2020, at 10:00 am, at the United States Courthouse in Pensacola. He faces up to five years’ imprisonment for each charge of mailing a threatening communication and up to 10 years imprisonment for each charge of threatened use of an explosive. Stirn pled guilty to a total of 12 separate charges.

This case resulted from an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the United States Marshals Service, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Pensacola Police Department, the Tallahassee Police Department, and the Capitol Police in Tallahassee.

    Pleading “Guilty” tells us this traitor wants to be inside the prison population.
    Many opportunities in our prisons for conversion to Islamic state lifestyle.
    Hopefully, the judge will take advantage of the maximum sentencing and assign that to this individual.
    Thankful he did not pull off the plans.

    How could you ever talk to a guy with a tatoo like that and take him seriously. Stupid is as stupid does.

    I thought that incoming And outgoing mail was skimmed by officers at the prison or correction centers….if so,a HUGE chunk of cash,and stress could have been saved by preventing this tard from getting his mail to the addressed…what a shame… .24 years old,..
