A normally quiet street in Boston’s North End saw quite a scene around noon on Wednesday when Federal authorities stormed in with a court warrant to search the building at 143 Fulton Street.
FBI searched the home and arrested Trevor Lucas, 31, for violating terms of his January 2019 release from prison, according to The Boston Globe. Lucas pled guilty in 2010 to using a firearm in a violent crime incident where he sought revenge on a Wisconsin teen he met through the online game “World of Warcraft.”
Observers on social media posted photos of federal authorities related to terrorism, including the FBI violent crimes division and hazardous evidence team. A tent was set up outside with a section of the sidewalk and street cordoned off.
The FBI issued a statement saying it was “conducting court authorized activity in connection with an ongoing federal investigation” and indicated no threat to public safety. The building search continued for several hours, apparently looking for weapons hidden by Lucas.
