(NECN/WABC: Newburgh, N.Y.) - Just about 70 miles north of New York City, an alleged plot was conceived in a home the FBI had under surveillance almost from the start. The alleged ring leader, James Cromitie, met at an apartment in Newburgh, New York with a confidential informant that he said "he planned to create a fire ball that would make the country guess." The alleged plan was foiled Wednesday night as law enforcement raided two locations in Newburgh. State Police were busy collecting evidence at 114 Lake Drive overnight. They believe the group of four terror suspects purchased air surface missiles that could shoot down planes at nearby Stuart Air Force Base. They allegedly stored their weapons at local storage facility. These shocking revelations had left residents here stunned. "Honestly, I'm not here long enough to actually know what his lifestyle is. He comes out, you know, says hi," one neighbor said. "Goes back in the house, does what he does. Lives right over here with us. Regular dude," another neighbor said.
