Ricin plot man jailed

17 Sep, 2015

A man is jailed for eight years for trying to buy deadly ricin poison from a website after being inspired by the TV series, Breaking Bad. 31-year-old, Mohammed Ali struck a deal with a supplier in to buy 500 mg of powder, a quantity enough to kill 1,400 people. He was unaware that his source was in fact an FBI agent. The trial heard the father-of-two was sent harmless powder hidden inside a toy car. After opening the package, which had been treated with a marker substance, he was arrested at his home the following morning.
