FBI arrests 2 suspects accused of planning attack on Baltimore power grid

The FBI captured two people, described as “racially motivated” extremists, before they could launch an attack on Baltimore’s power grid, officials said Monday.

The suspects were arrested last week, one in Maryland and the other in Florida, officials said.

One of the suspects is a man and the other a woman.

Attacks on the country’s power grid were highlighted in December, following two high-profile incidents.

Shootings took place at two electrical substations in central North Carolina in early December, officials said. At the height of the Duke Energy outages, more than 45,000 homes and businesses were in the dark.

This incident was followed by attacks on four electrical substations over Christmas weekend near Tacoma, Washington, when an estimated 14,000 homes and businesses were forced to go without power, officials said.
