Shelton man accused of bomb plot in robbery scheme

SEATTLE — Federal authorities say a Shelton man plotted to blow up a Wal-Mart and two gas stations with “maximum loss of life” so he could rob three banks while emergency responders were diverted.
FBI agents arrested 53-year-old Larry Gillette on Monday as he met with an undercover agent and attempted to ignite a car bomb. The bomb was inoperable.
The U.S. attorney’s office said Gillette was scheduled to appear in federal court in Tacoma on Tuesday afternoon on charges of solicitation to commit a crime of violence and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
The Olympian reported the FBI learned about the plot while Gillette was serving a prison sentence for identity theft and an undercover agent befriended him after his April 14 release.
