British terror trial centers on alleged homegrown plot
International Herald Tribune – Nov 26, 2006
Operation Crevice, aided by the United States, Canada and Pakistan, involved round-the-clock human surveillance, audio wiretaps in cars and homes and video surveillance. 20, investigators got an extraordinarily lucky break: a suspicious employee at a self-storage warehouse outside of London called the police to report that someone named Nabeel Hussain was storing a large amount of fertilizer. The police inserted an undercover officer called Amanda as the receptionist and secretly replaced the fertilizer with a benign substance. A hidden camera was installed and filmed Khyam when he showed up to check the contents. The police continued to watch and listen, and their 3,500 hours of surveillance tapes are at the core of the prosecution case. Some of the most chilling conversations played in court are between Khyam, whose Suzuki sport utility vehicle and apartment had been bugged, and Jawad Akbar, 23, a college student whose apartment had been bugged… On March 30, 700 police officers raided two dozen locations, shutting down what they suspected was a cell and arresting six of the defendants. They found the cookie tin containing aluminum powder behind a shed at Khyam’s family home in Crawley. They also found a dozen CD-ROMs giving detailed plans of Britain’s electricity and gas systems that they charged had been stolen from the National Grid Transco utility company by an employee, Waheed Mahmood. At 34, Mahmood, a father of four, is the oldest Crevice defendant. The police seized a list of British synagogues and computer video files containing parts of an explosives handbook and a military training manual. Investigators also found instructions for how to react if contacted by counterterrorism authorities.

Gayle Harbison and Amy Shelton’s company is in its second season of making homes brighter for the holidays. “Most people enjoy the idea of not having that responsibility of putting up lights themselves,” Shelton said.
