SPRINGFIELD — Effingham County sheriff deputies have reported the early Sunday morning arrest of three men to the federal Joint Terrorism Task Force.


The men, two from Russia and one from Kazakhstan, were found near Georgia Power’s Plant McIntosh on Old Augusta Road about 1 a.m. Sunday after a ranger with the Department of Natural Resources reported a suspicious vehicle, Effingham County sheriff’s spokesman David Ehsanipoor said.


Deputies reported the men, who were inside a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder, had a machete, shovel, wire cutters and ski masks. One man also had black silk stockings in his front left pocket.


Arrested were Evgeniy Luzhetskiy, of Kazakhastan Nail Idiatullin and Rustem Ibragimov of Russia. All three reported they lived in Charleston, S.C., deputies reported.


The men were all charged with possession of tools during the commission of a crime.


The three were released after being interviewed by task force members, Ehsanipoor said.

"They did all have visas that allowed them to be here and are supposed to be leaving the country soon."

Holy shit, that's just a few minutes down the road from me, and this is the first I've heard of it.

They've probably learned about meth in their travels, and decided to try and get some copper from the plant so they could scrap it in S.C. on the way home and get some cash for a fix.

The problem with their plan is that you WILL get caught trying to bust into a Georgia Power generation facility, and on top of that, there probably isn't any copper there anyway.

Sounds rather well-planned for a bunch of copper-stealing meth-heads.

What kind of tweaker brings ski masks?

And, as was already mentioned, attempting to steal copper from a power plant (which is manned and probably patrolled by security guards around the clock) is just plain stupid, particularly when most substations and construction sites are unmanned at night.

The shovel and machete make no sense. Maybe they were out looking for confederate gold bars on the power plant property?

It probably seemed a lot quieter.

Crime in Russia is not that well understood by people who are not aware of its pervasiveness. When you hear about "Israeli" crime, it isn't a sudden boom in orthodontists boosting stereos –– it's Russians with an Israeli passport. When you hear about "Ukranians", well, it's usually actually Russians. So, yes, it does make sense that in their free time they decided to commit more crimes.

Wait. Hold up.

So they find 3 foreign folks with tools that would allow them to break into a power station and cause massive amounts of mayhem if they were able to get in and shut it down....

They charge them for possession of tools with intent...

And then release them?

So they can get ARMED and fucking try again?

It's because they are crooks on a tourist visa, they aren't terrorists, and it's easier to pull their visa and deport them.

If we ha d a russian come in and find something he likes he'd spend the next 2 hours on the phone then in another hour there would be 25 Russians mulling about talking amongst the crowd then they all come up in the counter and try to haggle and you get to play the explain eligibility and turn down straw purchases game.

Weird: I've only known one russian in my lifetime. Thought he was cool. After a year of "friendship", I came to the conclusion he was a sociopath.

I dunno if I'd go as far as saying "trust no russian", but I think it may be good advice to be wary of them.

I'm not saying that they are bad people. It just was something I noticed. We had to play close attention much like a shell game because it seemed money and things would change hands often.

I am in Norther Alabama currently, and shit exactly like that is going on all the time. enterprising tweakers have graduated from raiding abandoned houses and stealing window A/Cs to trashing sub-stations. A couple walking trashpiles from the next town over just got busted after doing hundreds of thousands on dollars of damage to the elect. infrastructure while stealing copper.

Three men arrested outside Georgia Power heading back to Russia, Kazakhastan

FBI wraps up investigation of three men arrested outside power plant

Three men arrested early Sept. 5 near Georgia Power's Plant McIntosh on Old Augusta Road will be leaving the country, Lawrence Greene of the FBI said Tuesday.

The men, two from Russia and one from Kazakhstan, were arrested by Effingham County sheriff's deputies after being found with a variety of tools about 1 a.m. Sept. 5 near the power plant. The arrest came after the trio was spotted by a Department of Natural Resources ranger and a plant security guard, sheriff's spokesman David Ehsanipoor said.

The men, Evgeniy Luzhetskiy of Kazakhastan, and Nail Idiatullin and Rustem Ibragimov, both of Russia, were all charged with possession of tools during the commission of a crime.

Deputies reported the men, who were inside a 1995 Nissan Pathinder, had a number of items - including a machete, several pairs of rubber gloves, and a ski mask and a Tom-Tom navigation system.

Due to the "totality" of the circumstances, Effingham deputies followed protocol in contacting the Joint Terrorism Task Force, Ehsanipoor said.

The Joint Terrorism Task Force is a multi-agency panel led by the Justice Department and the FBI.

"Deputies asked for their drivers licenses and/or passports when they approached the men," Ehsanipoor said. "At that time they did not have identification and said they had come from Charleston, S.C."

Ehsanipoor said the men indicated they were lost and were trying to meet with someone they had met on the Internet.

It was later determined the three had visas that allowed them to be here temporarily and that they would be leaving soon, Ehsanipoor said.

"Members of the task force interviewed them and determined they could be released," Ehsanipoor said.

Greene said the task force investigation is complete.

"There is nothing here that warrants any further investigation into this matter," Greene said. "In the event something else happens, we will investigate."

Greene noted the three would be leaving the country and will be monitored by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
