The United States also accuses Syria of providing a “safe haven” for the group, and allowing PIJ headquarters to remain in Damascus.

In the Gaza strip there is not even a central authority available. The ‘streets’ are controlled by armed militias, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the the Popular Resistance Committees, all currently funded by Hezbollah.

Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah is wanted for conspiracy to conduct the affairs of the designated international terrorist organization known as the “Palestinian Islamic Jihad” (PIJ) through a pattern of racketeering activities such as bombings, murders, extortions, and money laundering (Stolen Car Racket). Shallah was one of the original founding members of the PIJ and is presently the Secretary-General and leader of the organization, which has its headquarters located in Damascus, Syria. He was listed as a “Specially Designated Terrorist” under United States law on November 27, 1995.

Mr. X filed a complaint against a Florida private eye for posting what he felt was a defamatory article on Mr. X linking him and his used car lot to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad  (PIJ) terrorist organization in Tampa and in Gaza (where he is from).  Mr. X was the owner of a used car lot on in Tampa Fl.  

Mr. X  is a long time associate of convicted terrorist supporter (Palestinian Islamic Jihad) Sami Al-Arian, they ran a business called “copy time” that printed flyers for solicitations in Tampa for the families of suicide bombers in the West Bank and Gaza.  Mr. X  has close links to the current head guy and FBI most wanted terrorist Ramadan Abdullah Shallah of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Ramadan Abdullah Shallah, PIJ founde, was calling Mr. X on Friday February 10th 1995 and Sunday Feb. 12th 1995, from the phone line at the Islamic Academy of Florida in Tampa Fl, the same day Sami al-Arian was contacting others about the Beit Lid massacre and just days after the Beit Lid massacre story came out in TIME Magazine.

December 11th, 2011…DEA Complaint Names 30 Muslim Used Car Dealers In the USA Who Laundered Millions in Drug Money For Hezbollah By Sending Cars to West Africa, See Tampa used car dealer on List.  Since March of 2004, I was aware of the “cars are the cash scam“ whereby used car dealers in the USA were buying vehicles with dirty money and sending the used cars to West Africa (Nigeria), Dubai UAE and Jeddah Saudi Arabia for resale.

Money laundering scheme includes a Tampa car business see video: Federal law enforcement officers with the Bureau of Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE), U.S. Secret Service and Federal Officers at the Port of Tampa, all started investigations into the “cars are the cash scam“, all were shut down by the FBI who took over the investigations when it appeared to be a support of terrorism case.

The current “Civil Complaint” filed against the 30 Muslim used car dealers in the USA, charged with laundering money for the terrorist group Hezbollah, is a DEA Action as per DEA Special Agent Christopher Miller, not the FBI, the FBI always takes over any investigation when it is linked to terrorism, so what’s up?

‘Operation Wheels of Fortune’ Philadelphia: Dozens of Muslim Car Thieves Arrested in $2.3 Million Car Theft Ring That Sent Vehicles to West Africa, Support of Terrorism?

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

BENSALEM, Pa. – April 17, 2012 Law enforcement authorities are calling it ‘Operation Wheels of Fortune,‘ but clearly this was no game. State Police say Thompson BMW in Doylestown and Don Rosen Imports in Conshohocken were frequent targets of a sophisticated car theft ring.   Authorities say the suspects involved are part of a massive international theft ring that operated in the Philadelphia area, ultimately sending the cars to West Africa. 
Most of the vehicles, including SUVs, were ripped off by stealing keys from local car dealers, but also through violence and threats.  “With gun point robberies, home burglaries, and carjackings, which were also used to obtain the vehicles that foreign brokers and buyers were seeking,” Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan said.
Police say this is how it worked: The street level thieves steal the vehicles then contact middlemen brokers like Akim Lane of Folsom, said to be one of the key players in the racket. In the area around 61st and Lindbergh in Southwest Philadelphia, investigators say Lane would park the stolen vehicles on the streets so potential buyers could drive by and inspect them in sort of an illicit, open air, stolen car showroom.
 
Once the cars were purchased they were loaded into shipping containers and taken to the Newark, New Jersey port for shipment to West African destinations including Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia.  “The cars that are brought over to West Africa to be sold are going to sell for about 20% to 30% more than they are in this country,” Noonan said.
Pennsylvania State Police were able to intercept and recover 41 stolen vehicles, before and after they had been loaded into shipping containers, all bound for cargo ships that were headed to West Africa. Those vehicles, worth approximately $1.6 million, ranging in value from a 2009 Mercedes C300, worth $24,000, to a 2010 Porsche Panamera, valued at $120,000.
 
 State Police identified nine individuals who allegedly assisted Fornah and others in the buying and shipping of stolen vehicles including Abdulai Daboh, Morris Keita, Dennis Koroma, Jameel Wilson and Umaru Sheriff-Riley, all of Philadelphia; Sheik Fofanah, of Yeadon, PA; Ibrahim Bah, of New York City; Abu Bakarr Jollah, of Gaithersburg, Maryland; Mamady Kaba, of Odenton, MD; and Ebrima Gikeneh, of Greenbelt, Maryland.
“This was a systematic and organized effort to target, steal and quickly move a massive inventory of stolen luxury cars, bound for international customers who were either unaware or did not care where the vehicles may have come from,” Noonan said. Kelly and Noonan noted that while most of the vehicles stolen in the Philadelphia area were obtained by stealing keys from car dealerships, investigators also located and recovered a number of other vehicles from shipping containers that had allegedly been obtained through violence or threats of violence.
 
“According to police records that were located after we recovered these vehicles, at least 17 were obtained through car-jackings, gun point robberies or thefts, mostly in and around Newark, New Jersey,” Noonan said. Additionally, Kelly said that at least nine other vehicles were allegedly stolen from an Avis car rental agency located near the Philadelphia airport, with at least six of those thefts allegedly linked to an employee at that business – Darrin Culler, of Newark, Delaware.
The State Police investigation also identified several other individuals accused of attempting to purchase stolen vehicles from Akim Lane, including Boubacar Diallo and Ibrahima Diallo, both from Brooklyn, New York; along with Abdul Shaw, of Darby, PA.  Kelly and Noonan noted that this remains an active and ongoing investigation into the organized theft and illegal export of stolen vehicles.
 
Kelly and Noonan thanked the following agencies for their assistance with this investigation and today’s arrests, including: The Philadelphia Police Department, U.S. Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), New Jersey State Police, United States Marshals Service (Fugitive Task Force), Maryland State Police, New York City Police Department and the Bensalem Township (Bucks County) Police Department.

Radical Hezbollah and Al Quds websites operating in Spanish from Venezuela are calling for “holy war” against U.S., Israeli and Saudi targets, SHUT DOWN JIHAD WEBSITES Says PI Bill Warner.

Wednesday, October 12, 2011 

 
Amb. Marc Ginsberg Former U.S. Ambassador to Morocco; Iran’s Terror Beachhead South of the Border in Mexico and  Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela.   When Attorney General Holder announced today that federal authorities had thwarted a “made for Hollywood” murder-for-hire plot by alleged Iranian-linked operatives tied to Mexico drug cartels to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the U.S, it came as no surprise to counter-terrorism experts familiar with Iran’s terrorist activities in Latin America.
 
Iran’s terror plotting south of the border has been a well-known fact — orchestrated by the Al Quds paramilitary wing of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) — a terrorist organization very well versed in the the art of the tango and tortillas for some time.
 
For over two decades, Al Quds operatives and their proxies from terrorist organizations throughout the Middle East have been deployed throughout Iran’s embassies in Latin America — most recently in Venezuela and Mexico. Starting in the late 1980s and early 1990s, using Hezbollah as initial cover, Al Quds masterminds began populating the “failed state” region in Latin American known as the Tri-Border Area (TBA) of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay as a base from which to train Islamic extremists.
 
The 1992 and 1994 attacks against Jewish and Israeli interests in Buenos Aires originated in the TBA. A veritable Star Wars bar scene of terrorists have reportedly been trained by Al Quds in the TBA and have taken shelter at one time or another there, including Iran proxy terrorists belonging to Hezbollah, Hamas, and al-Gama al Islamiya — all under the watchful patronage of Iran’s Al Quds operatives. 
 

The TBA is ideal for laundering terrorist identities because once an operative enters Paraguay he/she can just drive into Brazil and return without the need for showing a passport. This has not gone unnoticed, of course, by CIA and Israeli Mossad agents, who have been engaged in a secret war in the TBA for some time to neutralize the growing nexus between Iran, Hezbollah and Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez.

In 2010, Mexico foiled a plot by Hezbollah to establish a new network throughout Latin America, according to Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Seyassah. Mexican police mounted a surveillance operation against the alleged leader living in Tijuana, Mexico (just south of San Diego) — one Jameel Nasr, who was shuttling frequently between Mexico City and Beirut. Mexican police also told the newspaper that Nasr had also spent two months in Venezuela.

Mexican police also told the newspaper that Nasr had also spent two months in Venezuela. Although there was no overt link disclosed, the timing of Mexico’s move against the Nasir Hezbollah ring and the indictment in Miami of three men charged with financing Hezbollah out of Miami does not appear to be coincidental.
 
 
(February 19th, 2010 @ 10:25am) MIAMI (AP) – Three men are being charged in Miami with illegally exporting products to a South American shopping center, which U.S. officials say is a front to finance the Hezbollah terrorist group.  An indictment unsealed Friday charges the three with violating a U.S. ban on doing business with the Lebanon-based organization, which is listed as a terrorist group by the U.S. The men allegedly exported goods to the shopping center in Paraguay that U.S. officials say is a fundraising conduit for Hezbollah in a part of South America known as the Tri-Border Area, encompassing parts of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.
 
The shopping center, Galeria Page in Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, was included on the banned list in December 2006 along with owner Muhammad Yusif Abdallah. Abdallah is described as a senior Hezbollah leader in a region of South America long considered a haven for counterfeiting, smuggling, piracy and other crimes.
 
The suspects arrested in the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigation were identified in court documents as Khaled Safadi, 56, and 43-year-old Emilio Gonzalez, both of Miami; and 46-year-old Ulises Talavera-Campos, a citizen of Paraguay.
 
Lebanese Used Car Dealers who Sold PlayStations, Cars and Drugs Extradited To U.S.;  February 24, 2011. Used Cars, Drugs, Sony PlayStations, Hezbollah, Lebanon, Paraguay, U.S.
 
Paraguay extradited three Lebanese men to the United States on Thursday – two on drug trafficking charges and another who faces trial in Philadelphia for allegedly selling stolen cell phones, Sony PlayStations and used cars to raise funds for extremist activities in Lebanon.
 
Paraguayan anti-drug trafficking agent Maria Mercedes Castineira told The Associated Press that the three men were put on a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration plane after being held for months in Paraguayan jails.
 
Nemir Ali Zhayter and Amer Zoher El Hossni were captured Aug. 6, 2008, in Ciudad del Este on Paraguay’s “Triple Frontier” with Brazil and Argentina. Both were allegedly involved in trafficking cocaine to the U.S., Castineira said.  Moussa Ali Hamdan was arrested last June 16 in the same Paraguayan city shortly after arriving from New York. Prosecutors in Philadelphia said Hamdan, a dual U.S.-Lebanese national, bought what he thought where stolen goods from a U.S. government informant.
 
Hamdan allegedly exported more than 1,700 cell phones, 400 Sony PlayStation 2 systems and three used cars after the informant told him the moneyas well as counterfeit currency would go to finance Hezbollah. The Iranian-backed political group, which now has a major role in Lebanon’s government, is considered by the United States to be a terrorist organization.

Another Muslim Used Car Dealer Involved in A Terror Plot, Manssor Arbabsiar Planned To Kill Saudi Arabia Ambassador And Bomb Saudi And Israeli Embassies in Washington DC

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

U.S. authorities said earlier on Tuesday that they had broken up a plot by two men linked to Iran’s security agencies to assassinate Saudi Ambassador Adel al-Jubeir. One, a former Texas used-car dealer named Manssor Arbabsiar, was arrested last month while the other was believed to be in Iran.
However a friend and one-time business partner of Arbabsiar, David Tomscha, said Arbabsiar, known as Jack to his friends, made an unlikely secret agent. “I can’t imagine him thinking up a plan like that. I mean, he didn’t seem all that political. He was more of a businessman … He was sort of a hustler,” he said.
What is it about all the Muslim used car dealers linked to terror plots or involved in the support of terrorism through the sale of stolen cars?

MUSLIMS USED CAR DEALERS LINKED TO TERRORISM; For the last 10 years I have posted information about the Muslim stolen car/used car scam run in support of terrorism from around the world and the Moroccan and Iraqi used car dealers in the Sarasota-Tampa Fl area.

Global Islamic Terror: Follow the Money & the Stolen Cars. It’s all about the Cars, media stories show the front end, I have the back end. U.S.-Based Stolen Car Rings Fund, Supply Terrorists ; Terrorists have been using stolen car rings inside the United States to fund and supply their operations for years, recent investigations reveal. Stolen cars are obtained inside the United States, particularly in Tampa, Fl., and shipped to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where they are then sold for profit or even used for car bombs in places such as Iraq.

HOW SUNNI & SHIITE MUSLIM TERRORISTS SEND MONEY VIA THE USED CAR RACKET, by Bill Warner private investigator. My reports hace included the shipping container routes, the names of arrested used car delaers linked to terrorism and the names of the of the lead guys in just about every terrorist incident in the last 8 years that have been used car dealers importing or exporting stolen cars to fund their particular terrorist attack, this is how the money is shipped into the location targeted for the bombing, it is happening in Chicago, New York City and Tampa Fl.

Bill Warner and the stolen cars funding terror – Must read! The events over the past few days and the revelations of the direct funding of Shi’ite “secret cells” in Basra by smuggled cars and Iran, verifies what I have been stating for the past 10 years that a group of Shi’ite used car dealers in Tampa, from both Iraq and Gaza and linked to Sami al-Arian’s Palestinian Islamic Jihad (funded by Iran), are shipping vehicles to Dubai and then into Iraq in support of terrorism, Palestinian Islamic Jihad is also linked to al-Qaeda.

The complaint said Arbabsiar has fully confessed to his role in the operation and said he was recruited, funded and directed by the Quds Force.  Arbabsiar said his cousin Abdul Reza Shahlai was a high-ranking member of the Quds Force who approached him this past spring to ask for his cooperation.
Arbabsiar said he frequently traveled between the U.S. and Mexico for work and knew people he believed were in the drug trade, and his cousin asked him if he could recruit someone in the narcotics business for criminal activity.  U.S. officials say  Abdul Reza Shahlai has a violent past — the Bush administration accused him of planning a Jan. 20, 2007, attack in Karbala, Iraq, that killed five American soldiers and wounded three others.

Friday, August 15, 2008, Iraqi Shiite Terror Squads Receiving Training in Iran, “special group criminals” who took part in the Karbala Raid of Jan 2007.  U.S.: Iraqi Shiite Terror Squads Receiving Training in Iran,”special group criminals”.

WASHINGTON — Iraqi Shiite explosive and assassination teams are being trained in at least 4 locations in Iran by Tehran’s elite Quds force and Lebanese Hezbollah. The Karbala raid in Jan 2007 was a Iraqi Shiite Terror Squad who had Trained in Iran, “special group criminals”.

A senior U.S. military intelligence officer in Baghdad also said the fighters planned to return to Iraq in the next few months to kill specific Iraqi officials as well as U.S. and Iraqi forces. The intelligence officer described the information Thursday in an interview with The Associated Press. He spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the intelligence information. 

Arrested leaders of the “Special Group Criminals” in Iraq during 2007 were Ali Musa Daqduq, Qais Khazali and Layith Khazali,(see photos above) they were the Iranian operatives who helped plan a January 2007 raid in Karbala in which five American soldiers were killed, as per a American military spokesman in Iraq. The attackers carried forged identity cards and wore American-style uniforms, they drove 6 white GMC Suburban SUV’s. One American died at the start of the raid, but the rest of the American soldiers were abducted before they were killed.

Lebanese Hezbollah conducts much of the training in the camps because its members speak Arabic, the dominant language in Iraq. The trainees in the Iranian camps include three Iraqis already wanted by the Iraqi government for terrorist attacks: Haji Mahdi, Haji Thamir, and Baqir al Sa’idi, the officer said. He identified two Iraqi Shiite militia groups in Iran by name: “The League of the Righteous,” or “Asaib al Haq,” and the “Kataib al Hezbollah.”

The “special group criminals” are offshoots of cleric Muqtada al-Sadr’s Jaysh al-Mahdi militia. They spun off their own groups after al-Sadr declared a cease-fire with the Iraqi government in August 2007 and are not thought to be under his control now.

Saturday, May 03, 2008  TAMPA SUNNI & SHIITE USED CAR DEALERS LINKED TO THE SUPPORT OF TERRORISM..”Richard Dubin, vice-president of investigative services of the Insurance Bureau of Canada, told CTV News. Recent history has demonstrated that there are few religious-ideological barriers in the world of international terrorism. The secular Ba’athist regime in Syria works closely with Hizballah, as a secular Ba’athist regime in Iraq has developed ties to al-Qaeda. It would be a mistake to assume that Islamist international terror groups are driven primarily by the religious associations with radical Sunni or radical Shiite Islam or Iraqi Christians. These groups have their own geopolitical interests in bridging this great Islamic divide – particularly their antipathy for the United States and its allies.”
 
IRAQI CHRISTIANS CHALDEAN SECT OF USED CAR DEALERS IN DETROIT LINKED TO THE INTERNATIONAL MUSLIM USED CAR STOLEN CAR SCAM IN SUPPORT OF TERRORISM.
 
DETROIT — For nearly two years, the federal government was hot on the trail of a Detroit-based crime ring accused of renting cars in the United States, driving them to Canada, reporting them stolen and shipping them to Iraq. The scheme — unraveled in an investigation dubbed Operation Hot Wheels — came to a screeching halt this week when federal agents arrested 13 suspects, 10 from the Detroit area and three from California.
 
According to a federal indictment unsealed Wednesday, the international rental car scam involved luxury sedans and SUVs valued anywhere from $25,000 to more than $60,000. The defendants legitimately rented the vehicles — including Dodge Journeys, Toyota Avalons, a Chevy Tahoe and an Infiniti — from national rental agencies in Michigan, Ohio and California, the indictment said.

HOW THE CAR SCAM WORKS….All of the Detroit stolen cars are shipped to Basra iraq and then into Baghdad or nearby for resale in local used car showrooms, usually the car titles are “washed” by sending them through Turkey, Dubai or Sharjah UAE, then into Iraq.

Very, very extensive network on both sides of the pond, basically it is a Hawala with stolen cars, huge profits, but you have Arab Mafia’s of different religious backgrounds working together because of the unbelievable amount of cash the deals produce, support of terrorism, yeah sure, but first it is greed and big payoffs.

Arab Mafia in the USA that steals the cars and ships them to Iraq fronts the money for the deal, Arab Mafia in Iraq that receives the cars and sells the cars, kicks back cash to USA Arab Mafia, usually through the “Arab Bank”.

Stolen late model BMW SUV that would sell for $40,000 in the USA, gets $65,000 and up in Iraq, everybody is cash in Iraq, no banks, not a stable economy in Iraq, who would not get in this racket?

The suspects drove the vehicles to Canada and reported them stolen or carjacked in Detroit, when in fact the vehicles were headed to Iraq, the indictment said. In five cases, the vehicles turned up on shipping containers at the Port of Montreal, headed for Iraq via Turkey, the indictment said. Some vehicles made it to Iraq, but authorities did not disclose how many. They also didn’t say how many vehicles were involved or the estimated losses.
 
“Criminal groups often believe they are employing ingenious techniques to further their illicit activity,” said Brian M. Moskowitz , special agent in charge for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations. But, Moskowitz noted, the suspects left behind a “lengthy paper trail” that helped investigators expose the scheme.
 
According to the indictment, the mastermind was Adnan Hana, 57, of Sterling Heights, Mich. Export documents accompanying the vehicles in Montreal identified the exporter as Discount Auto Sales in Detroit, which is owned by Hana, the indictment said. Hana is free on bond and will be arraigned Tuesday. He could not be reached by the Detroit Free Press, and an attorney has not yet been assigned to his case. The indictment spells out how the suspects carried out the alleged scheme, which ran like clockwork as agents zeroed in on exactly when the stolen vehicles crossed the border.
 
For example, the indictment said, Jason Hana, 27, rented a 2009 Dodge Journey from Enterprise in Sterling Heights on July 9, 2008. The next day, at 11:47 a.m., Adnan Hana drove the Journey into Canada via the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel. One minute later, Jason Hana entered Canada via the tunnel in a separate car with a Michigan license plate, the indictment said. That vehicle returned to Detroit at 10:33 p.m. that day with Jason Hana and Adnan Hana inside, but the rental never returned from Canada. Jason Hana later filed a report with Detroit police claiming the Journey was stolen at roughly 7 p.m. July 28, the indictment said.
 
Three of suspects are from El Cajon CA. Sala Hanna, 57, and Samir Daly, 48, are charged in criminal complaints with transportation of stolen property in interstate and international commerce. Ramzi Yousef, 58, was arrested Wednesday and is charged in a criminal complaint with mail fraud for his role in the scheme. A Michigan man was also arrested in San Diego. Sabah Hermiz, 67, was involved in the scheme and has been indicted for transporting stolen property and conspiracy.
 
  Adnan Hana, 57, of Sterling Heights
 
Charged in the indictment are:
Jason Hana, 27, of Sterling Heights
Nazar Quiryaqous, 46, of Sterling Heights
Sabah Hermiz, 57, of Sterling Heights
Danieal Korkis, 46, of Sterling Heights.
 
          Wasem Aziz, 26, of Warren
 
Also charged in a criminal complaint – not the indictment – are five other metro Detroiters:
Peter Barno, 28, of Sterling Heights
Joey Youkhanna, 24, of Sterling Heights
Nilton Asmar, 30, of Sterling Heights
Ghanim Hanna, 59, of Sterling Heights.
 
The defendants face charges including transportation of stolen property in interstate and international commerce and related conspiracy charges.

NYPD and Homeland Security Busts International Car Theft Ring That Shipped $10 Million In Luxury SUVs To Yemen And Afghanistan, Stolen Cars to Support Terrorism.

Sunday, June 05, 2011 

 
Cops say they’ve smashed an international car theft ring that took custom orders for luxury SUVs – and stole them off the streetswith freshly made duplicate keys. The ring was so sophisticated, potential buyers across the nation and overseas were able to order specific car models, such as Lexis SUVs and Range Rovers, officials said Wednesday.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly joined by state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and other agency officials, said 19 ring members were under arrest, charged with stealing some 291 cars worth up to $10 million around the city.

“Cars that retailed for as much as $30,000 were being sold for as little as three to five thousand dollars,” Kelly said. Eight of the stolen cars “have been identified on the high seas, bound for Africa, Yemen and Afghanistan,” he said. “They are being turned around and will be returned to the United States.”  He identified the ringleader as William Cruz, 28, already being held on Rikers Island, who ran the ring through his lieutenant, Michael Torres.

 
Kelly said the crew relied on a chain of command that included a boss, “steal men,” individuals who produced illegal paperwork and two Toyota dealership workers who gave an employee of Big Daddy Locksmith in Brooklyn the master key codes to manufacture counterfeit keys.

The ring’s steal men would take orders for specific models and await the keys, a process Kelly said often took less than 48 hours. The vehicles were then stripped of their identifying VIN numbers. False titles would be printed and phony registrations provided from a gang associate in Pennsylvania.

This car theft ring was doing a swift business selling stolen luxury vehicles. That is, until our Auto Crime Division stepped in,” Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly said. “I want to commend the detectives who worked on this case, the Attorney General’s Organized Crime Task Force and the Department of Homeland Securityfor their efforts shutting down this ring.

 
James T. Hayes Jr special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations in New York, said: “Our combined efforts put an end to a criminal enterprise responsible for stealing approximately two-hundred eighty cars from the metropolitan area. Port security is a top priority for HSI, and we are poised to continue to use the Border Enforcement Security Task Force (BEST) to detect, disrupt and dismantle criminal organizations from passing illicit merchandise and contraband through our seaports.”

The indictment names the following individuals and their responsibilities:
William Cruz (“Cruz”) was the operation bosswho took orders from the black market and directed the steal crew to find vehicles that met the orders and carry out the thefts.

Michael Torres (“Torres”) was Cruz’s lieutenant who facilitated all phases of the operation, and assumed leadership when Cruz was unable to do so.

Henry Morel (“Charlie”) and Nathaniel Urena (“Nathaniel”) were the ‘paper men’ who provided forged documents, including certificates of title, registrations, counterfeit VIN and VIN stickers. These documents concealed the vehicles’ status as stolen should they ever be stopped by the police, and maintained the vehicles’ optimal value for resale.

Dennis Aviles (“Aviles”) who works for Plaza Acura, obtained Lexus and Toyota key codes through his brothers Joseph Aviles (“Joey”) and Edward Aviles (“Eddie”), who both work at the Brooklyn-based Plaza Toyota. Once they were provided with the target-cars’ VIN numbers, they searched the Toyota/Lexus database to find the corresponding key codes, which were used to cut and program counterfeit keys to steal the cars.

Vicente Abreu (“Big Daddy”), owner of Big Daddy Hardware, and Jose Miguel Mejia-Rodriguez (“Jose Miguel”) used the fraudulently obtained key codes to manufacture counterfeit keys for the steal men get into and start stolen cars without damaging the doors and steering columns.

Adam Jiminez (“Flaco”), John Acosta (“Johnny”), Edwin Mercado (“Alex”), Felix Cespedes (“Canela”), Aurelio Delossantos (“Pepe”), Jesus Gonzalez (“Joshua”) and Francisco Rodriguez(“Cisco”) acted as the steal men. They were responsible for carrying out the physical thefts, gaining entry into the pre-selected vehicles and driving them to predetermined “lay up” sites, such as street locations or one of several Kings and Queens county parking lots, to determine whether the cars have LoJack or any other tracking devices.

The steal men also functioned as taggers, reporting the true VIN stickers to the crew for the manufacturing of counterfeit keys, and also stripping the stolen cars of their true identifying characteristics including registrations, VIN stickers and VIN plates, and replacing the originals with forged VIN stickers, plates and registrations.

In addition to reselling the stolen vehicles in New Jersey, Illinois, Pennsylvania and elsewhere in the United States, William Cruz also worked with a buyer to facilitate the international sale of six vehicles over the black market. Three of those vehicles were headed to Yemen and the other three to Afghanistan, when their ships were turned around and the stolen vehicles seized.

While the final purchasers have not been identified, the buyer who did assist in trafficking the stolen vehicles has been indicted. Each of the 16 individuals named above has been charged with enterprise corruption for the theft of 42 vehicles valued at $1.6 million, which have been located. Further evidence established the theft of 291 cars valued at more than $10 million. Enterprise corruption is a class B felony that violates Penal Law Section 460.20 (1) (a), and carries mandatory prison time of 8 1/3 to 25 years and 12 1/2 to 25 years on predicates.

 
Five additional individuals were apprehended and charged with theft: Anne Acosta, Edward Gomez, Edward Terrero, Jose Perez and Tayyab Mukhta.Due to their minimal roles, were not implicated in the enterprise crime charges.

The investigation was conducted by NYPD Detective Guido Trivino of the NYPD Auto Crime Division, under the supervision of Lieutenant Christopher Willis and the overall supervision of Deputy Inspector Joseph Kenney and Organized Crime Control Chief Anthony Izzo. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant Deputy Attorneys General Dana A. Roth and Michael Bongiorno, under the supervision of Deputy Attorney General Peri Alyse Kadanoff.

In addition, the work of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection was also recognized: Robert E.

FBI File: Lynard Allan Bigcas Stolen Car Ring From Houston to Manila With Gun-Running To International Terrorist Groups, Cars Are Cash for Guns Says Private Eye.

Sunday, June 05, 2011 

HOUSTON to MANILA – When Hollywood screenwriter Skip Woods hired the services of a private investigation firm to locate his prized customized motorbike stolen in Texas last year, little did he expect that it would be traced halfway around the world in the Philippine southern island of Mindanao.

Apart from Skip Woods’ US $80,000 Harley Davidson bike, 24 other smuggled cars and motorcycles were seized during a raid by Philippine National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agents aided by a tip-off from the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI later confirmed that eight vehicles seized in the raid were stolen from the US based on their serial numbers. The recovery of the stolen US vehicles in the Philippines has put a spotlight on the country’s rampant smuggling and ports corruption at a container port in Mindanao Manila.

Skip Woods, a collector of custom-made vehicles, wrote the screenplays for Swordfish, Hitman and X-Men Origins: Wolverine. His chopper was among 14 motorcycles, three all-terrain vehicles, two SUVs, a sports car, a shotgun and ammunition for assault rifles recovered by police in raids in Cagayan de Oro and nearby Bukidnon province, Misamis Oriental provincial Police Chief Graciano Mijares said. Police are looking for a Filipino who was selling the motorcycle online, Mijares said. The FBI sought assistance in the recovery of Woods’ motorcycle, Yap said.Lynard Allan Bigcas, a Mindanao-based importer, a US immigrant and the main suspect in the luxury vehicle smuggling racket, allegedly received the seized shipment from Hispanic car thieves in Houston, Texas, according to officials. NBI authorities have also accused Bigcas of involvement in illegal gun-running with possible links to international terrorist groups after several high-powered firearms and ammunition were recovered during the May 3rd 2011 raid.

Lynard Allan Bigcas said during the congressional hearing that he imported the luxury vehicles by disassembling and shipping them in so-called “balikbayan” boxes (as car parts), or door-to-door shipments, by overseas Filipino workers that are not subject to tariffs and then reassembling the cars in Manila.  This is standard operating procedure for stolen car rings who take the stolen cars apart and ship them as “car parts” so that the customs agents will not check the VIN numbers.

MANILA..All balikbayan boxes arriving in the country should undergo mandatory X-ray inspections. Under the present procedure, balikbayan boxes are not required to pass through X-ray machine inspection unless there has been an alert on the shipment.

Suansing’s proposal cropped up when businessman Lynard Allan Bigcas admitted during a House of Representatives hearing that some of his motorcycles were disassembled or “chop-chop” abroad then shipped in balikbayan boxes to Philippines. The deputy customs commissioner said Bigcas still has to pay the appropriate duties and taxes on the “chop-chop” vehicles.Suansing said the Law Division of the BOC-District Cagayan de Oro will summon Bigcas to explain his importation of the luxury vehicles, motorcycles and spare parts. It was reported that President Benigno Aquino III OF MANILA himself is looking into the BOC after the agency’s failure to detect the shipment of 25 luxury cars and motorcycles Bigcas allegedly smuggled into the country.

Customs and Border Guards in Canada & USA at Sea Ports do not check the VIN on car parts. It is known tactic of the exporting car theives to remove the engine and the transmission and cut a vehicle in half and ship all together as car parts. Certain Import-Export Used Car Dealers and Auto Body Shops know these tricks.

When received on the other end, crews re-assemble the stolen vehicle and weld back together, quick paint job and out the door goes a late model Lexus or Hummer in Lebanon for resale at better than US or Canada retail prices, big money when re-sold and most likely aids in the support of terrorism.
Same scam is run out of the Port of Tampa Fl, see my prior post, Sunday, August 24, 2008, FOLLOW THE MONEY AND THE STOLEN CARS, AL-QAEDA MASTERS TERRORISM ON THE CHEAP.

More than 40 Stolen Bentleys and Aston Martins Abandoned On Streets Of Delhi, Dawood Ibrahim’s Muslim Used Car Scam Alive and Well in India.

Wednesday, June 01, 2011 

TELEGRAPH UK NEWS June 1st, 2011.  After a tax investigation exposed the alleged car smuggling operation, nervous members of the super-rich have scrambled to avoid arrest by abandoning cars, including Bentleys and Aston Martins on the streets of New Delhi.

More than 40 cars are now impounded in a government car park.  Models parked in the lot include Porsche Panameras, sold in India for £250,000, a Bentley Continental Supersport, costing £350,000, several Aston Martin Rapides, with a price tag of £290,000 and a Maserati, costing £170,000.

 

Until detectives closed in on the alleged smuggling network – which centred on a luxury car dealer and a North Korean and Vietnamese diplomat – they were ‘owned’ by top Bollywood film stars, and a couple of Indian international cricket players (Crime Kingpin Dawood Ibrahim’s Playground).

The Pakistan cricket scandal has been linked to Dawood Ibrahim. On 30 August 2010, Dileep Premachandran at the guardian.co.uk, wrote about the Pakistan cricket scandal: kidnapping and violence enforce gambling scams:

“The links between cricket and the underworld go back a long way. “Before his involvement in the Mumbai bombings of 1993 Dawood Ibrahim, the most influential and dangerous figure in Mumbai’s underworld, was a regular at cricket matches in Sharjah. “Both cricketers and Bollywood movie stars enjoyed his hospitality … his daughter married the son of Javed Miandad, Pakistan’s greatest batsman, in 2005….”

According to officials from India’s Directorate of Revenue Intelligence, the alleged scheme to cheat its tax authority out of millions of pounds centres on a British-Indian car dealer in Britain who is accused of arranging shipments to India where demand for luxury cars is insatiable. In some Indian cities businessmen have formed groups to bulk buy Mercedes cars direct from the manufacturer because they are too far from an official dealer.

A New Delhi-based car dealer, named as Sumit Walia, was arrested earlier this month and charged with importing luxury cars on forged invoices. Detectives claim he has defrauded the customs authorities by passing off new cars as second-hand to save 40 per cent on import duties. They suspect some of the cars may have been stolen in Britain, France, Singapore and Japan before being imported to India.

INDIAN MUSLIM MAFIA DON DAWOOD IBRAHIM STILL RUNS THE SHOW IN BOLLYWOOD, HEROIN TRADE AND THE STOLEN CAR RACKET IN DUBAI UAE, BY BILL WARNER PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR.

INDIAN MUSLIM MAFIA DON, Dawood Ibrahim DOB 12/31/1955, also known as Dawood Ebrahim, and Sheikh Dawood Hassan, birth name Sheikh Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar, is the head of the organized crime syndicate D-Company in Mumbai, hiding out in Karachi PK and still running Ballywood, heroin trade and the stolen car racket in Dubai UAE, he links to the Albanian Muslim Mafia drug and car racket.

In 2003, the United States Government declared Dawood Ibrahim a “Global Terrorist” and pursued the matter before the United Nations in an attempt to freeze his assets around the world and crack down on his operations after significant diplomatic lobbying by the government of India.

Sanjay Dutt, one of Bollywood’s biggest stars, was jailed for six years for possessing illegal firearms given to him by gangsters involved in a series of bomb attacks in Bombay in 1993 (Dawood Ibrahim). Dawood Ibrahim also prospered enough to gain a grip over the city’s prolific film industry, Bollywood. Ibrahim allegedly began financing a number of films and got some of the industry’s leading actors to star in them. “They wouldn’t dare refuse an invitation (from Ibrahim),” (right out of the “Godfather” movie) a friend of the gangster was reported as saying.

His Bollywood connections came out in the open when he was seen on television sitting with a number of leading stars and watching international cricket matches in the Gulf city of Sharjah UAE right next to Dubai the stolen car capital of the world.

Nigeria Stolen Car Ring Busted in Jacksonville Florida, Stolen Cars Trucked From Miami to Jax-Port Blount Island Terminal For Export As Certificate of Destruction Cars.

Sunday, April 17, 2011 

Two South Florida men were sentenced Monday, April 4, 2011, in federal court in Miami for aiding and abetting in the attempted smuggling of stolen motor vehicles from Jacksonville to Nigeria.

According to court documents, starting in February 2007, Omorose began receiving stolen vehicles from unknown individuals. In an effort to conceal the stolen nature of the vehicles, the vehicle identification numbers (VIN) were removed. The VINs were replaced with VINs from totaled or destroyed motor vehicles (CD cars) with the same make, model, and approximate year as the stolen vehicles purchased from CoPart on-line Certificate of Destruction Cars Auto auctions in Tampa and Miami.

Following the alteration of the VINs, Omorose made arrangements for his co-defendant, Dennis Edward Joseph (Joseph), to export the vehicles from Jacksonville, Florida to Nigeria. Joseph owned Cargo Maritime Services, Inc. (CMS) and used his company to make arrangements for the stolen vehicles to be brought to the JAXPORT Blount Island Terminal.

As part of the scheme, Omorose used various fraudulent documents, to include bills of sale and certificates of destruction cars that included the VIN fraudulently placed on the stolen vehicles. He also used various identities when making export arrangements.

Joseph, through CMS, arranged to have ten stolen vehicles exported from Jacksonville to Nigeria on behalf of Omorose. U.S. District Judge Marcia Morales Howard sentenced Osarobo George Omorose, 43, of Miami-Dade County to 18 months in prison, while 50-year-old Dennis Edward Joseph of Miami was sentenced to 180 days of house arrest and three years of probation, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.


Omorose also was ordered to pay $75,548 in damages to 14 victims. The pair pleaded guilty last October.  Omorose began receiving stolen vehicles. He hid their origins by removing the vehicle identification numbers and attaching new ones from totaled or destroyed cars of the same make, model and approximate year. Omorose worked with Joseph to export the vehicles from Jacksonville to Nigeria via the latter’s company, Cargo Maritime Services.

Ten stolen vehicles were to come to the JaxPort Blount Island Terminal with fake documents including bills of sale. But authorities intercepted all 10 after a joint investigation by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the FBI (counter terrorism)and Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

TAMPA SUNNI & SHIITE USED CAR DEALERS LINKED TO THE SUPPORT OF TERRORISM, “THE CARS ARE THE CASH” AND THE FBI HAS KNOWN SINCE JUNE 2002.

SCRAP-SALVAGED LEXUS SUV’S PURCHASED IN THE USA BY INTERNATIONAL CAR THEFT RING FOR THEIR VIN AND COMPUTER; Dubai Police arrested three of a five-member high-tech gang of car thieves who stole 13 Lexus 4x4s, the men were purchasing similar vehicles from abroad (Tampa USA) that had been written off in accidents from on-line Auto Salvage Auctions, the wrecked Lexus RX 330, ACV selling price will be around $3,000 plus $1,200 to ship to Dubai.

The cars were taken away, and their personalised vehicle computers were replaced with the ones from the vehicles purchased from the USA Auto Salvage Auctuions.

”The chassis numbers were changed (VIN) and the car-model plate replaced. That gave the stolen cars a different identity (a “Black Car”) – they now appeared to be legitimate vehicles purchased from abroad (USA).

UPDATE; “Operation Dual Identity” Cuban VIN Cloning King-Pin Pablo Barrio Still On the Run After Tampa Fl Take Down

Saturday, February 06, 2010

AMW.. Pablo Barrio Report a Tip He Is On The Run (Cuba ?) ….Feds: Nationwide Auto Theft Ring Exposed.  Police say they found more than 100 individuals connected to the group, but ultimately decided only to indict the key players.

 
It all started in December 2006, when an FBI agent in Tampa, Fla. was asked to help local detectives look into the theft of several cars, stolen from an area dealership, which ended up in another state.
 
The investigators teamed up and uncovered a massive, highly-organized group of Cuban car thieves who were not only operating in the Tampa area, but also in Miami, Fla.; Chicago, Ill.; Texas; and even Mexico.  Investigators say the crew stole more than 1,000 vehicles.
 
Over the next two-and-a-half years, approximately 50 law enforcement agencies across the United States worked together as a task force to take down the criminal enterprise.
 
The investigation was called “Operation Dual Identity,” because agents say the group was operating a car-cloning scheme.
 
The individuals that were arrested during the morning sweep were identified as:
1). Pablo Barrio, a/k/a “Tito, 54 years old, Cooper’s Pond Apartments, 6225 North Dale Mabry Highway, Building 10, Unit 1003, Tampa, Florida;
2). Edel Barrio, a/k/a “Eddie” and “Hueso,” 26 years old, 6915 Hubert Avenue, Tampa, Florida;
3). Ramon Blanco, a/k/a “Gallego,” 46, incarcerated – Illinois;
4). Carlos Thomas Diaz, 39 years old, incarcerated – Florida;
5). Frank Samuel Ferrera, 29 years old, 17357 Madison Green Drive, Tampa, Florida;
6). Ovidio Hernandez, a/k/a “Ovi,” 47 years old, 5742 South California, Chicago;
7). Adiel David Lopez, 21, 2513 West Beach Street, Tampa, Florida;
8). Roberto Ontivero-Artal, a/k/a “Papito,” 39 years old, incarcerated – New Jersey;
9). Alvan Perez-Cano, a/k/a “El Tigre,” 45 years, 5314 Mile Stretch Drive, Apartment C, Holiday, Florida;
10). German Rodriguez, 50 years old, 3337 North Kedzie, Chicago, Illinois;
11). Javier Solis, 42 years, 2338 North Melvin, Chicago, Illinois;
12). Miguel Angel Gonzalez, a/k/a “Miguelito,” 44 years old, incarcerated – Florida
13). Nelson Thomas, a/k/a “Nono,” 45 years old, 17330 Northwest 53rd Place, Opa Locka, Florida.
 
The 4 below listed individuals are still being sought by law enforcement. The FBI is asking anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the following individuals to contact their local law enforcement agency or the FBI at 1-866-838-1153:
 
1). Eduardo Izquierdo-Marquez, a/k/a “Papa.” 46 years old, 290 West 32 Street, Hialeah, Florida.
 
2). Eliener Alfonso-Gonzalez, a/k/a “Cavillia,” 40, Mexico City, Mexico.
 
3). Fernando Taurino Capote-Gonzalez, a/k/a “Flaco,” 50 years old, 6840 North Waterway Drive, Miami, Florida.
 
4). Teddy Santana, 37 years old, Jalisco (Guadalajara), Mexico

This is how it worked:  An individual would contact the group and request a specific vehicle — usually of the high-end variety — to purchase. The group would then locate and steal that particular vehicle. The car thieves then searched online databases to find a matching car in another state.

Police say the purpose was to get the vehicle’s VIN number, which is readily available online.  Once they had the VIN, the information was sent to another party in Mexico, where another crew produced counterfeit VIN plates and labels, as well as phony title documents.
 
The forged plates and paperwork were then sent to the United States and placed on the stolen vehicle. The stolen car was sold to the buyer with a whole new identity — belonging to a car in another state.
 
Police say the stolen cars were often bought and sold several times even ending up on eBay Craigslist and at other car dealerships.  According to FBI Special Agent in Charge Steve Ibison, “This case alone has uncovered estimated losses of more than $27 million.”
 
Operation’s Alleged Mastermind Flees Before Court Appearance.  Federal agents say Pablo Barrio, a former auto mechanic and convicted car thief, was the operation’s main leader.  And agents say Barrio and his gang weren’t just cloning cars: anything with a unique identifier was fair game, including credit cards, debit cards, and personal identities.
 
On March 24, 2009, federal agents took down 15 of the 17 members indicted for what agents describe as one of the largest auto theft rings in the United States. According to FBI Special Agent in Charge Steve Ibison, “This case alone has uncovered estimated losses of more than $27 million.”
 
But on the morning of April 16, 2009, Barrio’s ankle monitor was turned off so that he could attend a mandatory court hearing and Barrio never showed up (HOW STUPID ).
 
Police say Barrio took off, and may have fled to Mexico. Investigators say he could also be hiding in Florida, Texas, or Chicago.  Barrio is facing life in prison if convicted of all charges.

Tampa, Florida—PABLO BARRIO 54 was placed on house arrest (LOL what a joke) on April 16, 2009 and escaped during the morning of April 28, 2009 from his residence and is now a federal fugitive.
 
On March 24, 2009, BARRIO was arrested by federal authorities. BARRIO was the key subject of OPERATION DUAL IDENTITY, a joint investigation involving a major car-cloning scheme. This joint investigative effort was one of the largest auto theft cases in the United States.
 
Investigators suspected BARRIO may be headed for Mexico. PABLO BARRIO had access to a 2004 dark blue Chevrolet Tahoe Florida license plate 936-IIL.  BARRIO has family members residing in High Springs, Florida; he previously lived in Chicago, Illinois; and has connections throughout the state of Florida; Houston, Texas, and has family members in Cuba.
 
Some used car dealers (Tampa and VIN cloning Sarasota Fl) who bought the cloned cars for less than they were worth are complicit in the scam FBI officials said. Certain Tampa used car dealers have been involved in a car scam shipping stolen cars to Dubai for resale at 2 to 3 times the retail value that could be obtained in the USA, sweet deal !
 
The ring was based in Tampa but operated in Miami, Chicago and as far away as Mexico City, authorities said. It stole about 1,000 vehicles, less than half of which were recovered, before catching the attention of investigators in 2006. The losses amount to more than $25 million, agents say.
 
PABLO BARRIO is described as follows:
Race: White Male (Hispanic)Height: 5 feet 8 inches Weight: 170 pounds (Medium Build) Hair: Black w/ Gray… Eyes: Brown..Date of Birth: January 15, 1955

The Stolen Cars of Al Qaeda, Moussa Ali Hamdan’s Muslim Mafia in NY and Philly Runs Cars For Hezbo to Lebanon via Syria, Same Scam Has Been Run Out Of Tampa Since June 2002.

 What if Al Qaeda has found a new method to launder money around the world ?   In his July 5, 2005 testimony before the Senate Banking Committee, terrorism expert Steven Emerson made a chilling prophecy.  He said that he would not be surprised someday to find an international network of stolen car rings raising money for terrorism,and shipping cars to the Middle East to be made into car bombs.

Emerson did not know that Bill Warner, a Florida Private Investigator had been secretly working on this issue since 2003 as a paid confidential informant (CI) for the Bureau of Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE)Stolen cars funding al-Qaeda in Iraq. The stolen vehicles, used as car bombs,  are coming from every direction, this time from Philadelphia to Lebanon via Syria. 

Four Men Part of NY Muslim Mafia Indicted for Conspiring to Support Hizballah, Hassan Hodroj, Dib Hani Harb, Moussa Ali Hamdan and Hasan Antar Karaki shipped stolen cars to the Middle East for resale, Moussa Ali Hamdan is from Brooklyn NY. 

The indictments link Hezbollah to a wide array of crimes, ranging from counterfeiting U.S. currency and money laundering to fencing stolen cars, (scam has been operating out of Tampa Fl since at least June 2002), cellular phones, laptops and Sony PlayStation 2 systems, all shipped out of the USA.

These stolen goods included cellular telephones, laptop computers, Sony Play Station 2 systems and automobiles, which the conspirators caused to be transported to destinations outside Pennsylvania, including overseas.

The Stolen Cars of Al Qaeda: How a Private Detective in Florida (Bill Warner) discovered a new global terrorist connection Written by Atty. John Loftus, research and background investigation by Bill Warner WBI Inc Terrorism Research Ctr. www.wbipi.com . 

Bill Warner has uncovered documentary evidence that stolen cars from Florida were being shipped to Al-Qaeda front companies in Dubai, U.A.E., Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and Aqqaba, Jordan. Furthermore, Warner claims that he has provided Federal agencies with a “smoking gun” document; a copy of the bill of lading from a Tampa used car lot shipping a vehicle directly to what appears to be an Al Qaeda front company in Saudi Arabia.
 
Even more embarrassing to the FBI, Warner showed the federal agents that the suspected used car lots in Florida all had a common link: these used car lots were either owned by convicted terrorist Sami Al Arian or run by one of his associates in Tampa, one of whom is currently on the No Fly List.
 
Recent history has demonstrated that there are few religious-ideological barriers in the world of international terrorism. The secular Ba’athist regime in Syria works closely with Hizballah, as a secular Ba’athist regime in Iraq has developed ties to al-Qaeda. It would be a mistake to assume that Islamist international terror groups are driven primarily by the religious associations with radical Sunni or radical Shiite Islam. These groups have their own geopolitical interests in bridging this great Islamic divide – particularly their antipathy for the United States and its allies.
