Queens district attorney Melinda Klatz stated, “Among the weapons found were eight fully operable bombs” according to NBC News. In the interview with NBC Klatz also said, “We can not measure the number of lives that were saved, but we do know these weapons will never hurt anyone.” The district attorney’s office released the proposed “hit list.” This list mentions cops, judges, politicians, and celebrities.


Among the 130 charges, there are 64 separate counts relating to illegal weapon possession. The brother duo will appear in court on February 15th and if convicted the brothers could face 25 years in prison.

Both brothers have not pleaded guilty to the charges.
