Nation IN BRIEF : MONTANA : FBI Trains Camera on 'Freemen' Ranch

April 21, 1996|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

The FBI installed a large surveillance camera on a hill overlooking the remote ranch where anti-government "freemen" are holed up. The TV camera in the back of a rental truck has a powerful lens that could be equipped for night vision, said television technicians at the scene. One photographer said it was the type of camera that networks use in covering football games. The FBI has refused to comment on its operations in the standoff near Jordan, which began March 25 when agents arrested two leaders of the group.
