A stunning discover was made recently in Albuquerque, NM. Officers raided a man's trailer where he was selling methamphetamines when they discovered classified documents while siezing evidence of his illegal business practices. The FBI traced the leak back to a woman connected to the drug dealer, who happened to be a contract employee at Los Alamos National Laboratory. No names or motives are being released at this time.

Local police found the documents while arresting a man suspected of domestic violence and dealing methamphetamine from his mobile home, said Sgt. Chuck Ney of the Los Alamos, N.M., Municipal Police Department. The documents were discovered during a search of the man's records for evidence of his drug business, Ney said.

Police alerted the FBI to the secret documents, which agents traced back to a woman linked to the drug dealer, officials said. The woman is a contract employee at Los Alamos National Laboratory, according to an FBI official who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the case.

The official would not describe the documents except to say that they appeared to contain classified material and were stored on a computer file.

FBI special agent Bill Elwell in Albuquerque, N.M., confirmed that a search warrant was executed on Friday night, but he refused to discuss details. "We do have an investigation with regard to the matter, but our standard is we do not discuss pending investigations," Elwell said. A spokesman for the Los Alamos National Laboratory, in Los Alamos, N.M., declined to comment.

What an unfortunate incident. Rest assured the perp will be charged the federal crime of a misdemeanor, up to one year in jail and/or up to $100,000 fine.

Let us hope the management of this facility will do a review of their security measures and take action to prevent this from ever happening again. Could this be a botched attempt at one of those false flag operations?

Have a nice day.

Yeah... appeared. Elections time? And where does it say something about nuclear weapons? At Los Alamos, they don't just do things about nuclear weapons...

The news relice does talk about how Las Alamose does have a history with problems when it come to security.

They edited the damn thing. Mods please edit my title, it is now misleading. I submitted this article 8 minutes after it broke on yahoo around midnight last night, and the first paragraph as in their, as well as the other sources all stated it was nuclear weapons documents. Either they made a mistake in assessment, or decided it was not wise to reveal that publicly when everyone wakes up.

This crap might was well be deleted now, its really just another breach at Los Alamos. They have one at least every year or so dont they?
