More Suspicious Activity in Boston

NO_trespassingThree padlocks meant to keep trespassers out of the greater Boston water supply in Framingham, Massachusetts were cut and a fourth was damaged, according to State Police. The incident comes just three weeks after 7 foreign nationals were arrested for trespassing at the Quabbin water reserve.

The Hultman Aqueduct carries drinking water to Boston and surrounding towns. Three access hatches about a half mile apart, with clearly visible “No Trespassing” signage, had their locks cut. A fourth lock was damaged but not fully cut. Officials are calling the latest incident “vandalism” with no connection to terrorist activity, though State Police have increased patrols in the area.

The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority released a statement Monday saying, “MWRA’s real-time water quality monitoring shows no change in water quality nor any sign of contamination” at the aqueduct. A similar statement was made shortly after the trespassing arrests in May.

Information regarding the 7 individuals of Middle Eastern decent who were arrested just after midnight May 14th was characterized as “confidential” by a clerk at the East Hampshire District Court in Framingham. The names, charges, and court dates have not been released by authorities, but local news reports say the individuals live in 4 separate Boston suburbs and New York City. How the 7 came to be at the same location in the middle of the night to trespass on Quabbin Water Reserve property remains unclear. Requests for this data and more via a Freedom of Information Act Request, as well as multiple messages for Massachusetts State Police Chief Legal Counsel have not yet been returned.

  1. Thanks for update…it’s ‘curious,’n curiouser’ to say the least. Events like this and the deserted SUV w/o a license plate in the middle of Brooklyn Bridge, the unexplained explosions, train wrecks paint a picture that is starting to make me a tad paranoid….And our DLS Non-competento doesn’t help a single bit!!…..Think 2014 !! Take the Senate & we can at least throw a kink in this anti-American Administration.

  2. Makes you wonder who’s more of a danger to the American people, the terrorist or those that are suppose to protect us but refuse to admit that there are terrorist in this country. Politicial correctness is destroying our country, common sense is a thing of the past.
