A letter purporting to be from the group claiming responsibility for a pipe bomb explosion that injured the young stepson of an Oxnard narcotics detective has been received by a Ventura newspaper and suggests that another explosive device has been sent to local law officers, it was reported Wednesday.
"We wanted to start the year off with a bang," said the letter that arrived at the Star Free Press on Tuesday evening, "but we havent heard it yet. Did it go off and the narcs keep it a secret from you or are you to busy writing about our brothers in Libya to write about us?"
The letter was signed "PLA," presumably for People's Liberation Army, the name attached to a series of threats to Ventura County narcotics officers.
No Knowledge of New Bomb
Neither the Ventura County Sheriff's Department nor police departments of Ventura and Oxnard, however, appeared to know anything about any new bomb being sent to one of their officers or planted at any law enforcement facility.
