Jurors in the Joshua Stafford case have found him guilty in connection with the plot to blow up the Route 82 bridge between Akron and Cleveland.
WKYC-TV Channel 3 cameras caught up with Special Agent in Charge Stephen Anthony of the Cleveland FBI who says Stafford and the other four men had an agenda on their minds.
"Make no mistake, these individuals intended to do our community harm," he said.
Stafford was found guilty of two counts of using weapons of mass destruction and one count of explosive materials. He (Stafford) testified that he was unaware friends from the anti-corporate Occupy Cleveland movement planned to blow up the bridge. He told jurors he only expected to tag it with graffiti.
The other four defendants in the case have pleaded guilty and are serving prison terms ranging from six to 11 years.
Stafford will be sentenced September 11.
