On December 21, 2004, two men accused of plotting an eco-terrorist attack were arrested in Oregon.
Charles Arthur Jordan IV, 20, and Stephen Marshall, 19, were arrested at an abandoned farm house and charged with plotting to blow up equipment owned by Oregon quarry company, Morse Bros. The two allegedly believe that the quarry company was polluting a local river and decided some well-placed explosives was a logical response.
The two apparently came under suspicion after they allegedly boasted to friends about their plans.
