JASPER — Authorities with the Walker County Sheriff’s Office have reported that two inmates who had given themselves the code names Pinky and The Brain had a plan to create bombs and use them to commit several murders.
According to authorities, after the plan was discovered, inmates Bryan Wayne Williams Jr. and Terry Keith Hammond were both charged with four counts of making a terrorist threat.
Hammond was the owner and operator of Jasper radio station WQJJ 101.9 Fox-FM, and a previous administrator of the Walker County Area News Facebook page, authorities said.
The plan was to create several Ammonium Nitrate/fuel bombs and distribute them to areas in the Walker County Courthouse where they would be detonated, said officials.
Authorities said one of the inmates, who was preparing to bond out, had plans to gather the materials and instructions for the creation of the bombs once he was on the outside.
Among the list of targets for the plot was Sgt. Josh Key, Capt. Ralph Williams, Capt. Darrell Mote, Investigator Ray Capps, Walker County Judges and District Attorney Bill Adair, said officials.
Other targets included the Sheriff’s Office and the Public Defender’s Office, The Walker County Sheriff’s Office reported.
The bond for each man set at $500,000.
