(BALTIMORE) -- A Baltimore man has been arrested in a sting operation where officials say he thought he was part of a bomb plot.
Antonio Martinez, who calls himself Muhammed Hussein, is accused of plotting to blow up a United States Armed Forces recruiting station in the Baltimore suburbs. The FBI gave him what he thought was a car bomb, but it was fake, and officials insist there was never any real danger.
ABC news consultant Brad Garrett says these sting operations may deter other potential terrorists. "It doesn't stop people from doing it, but it does disrupt it and it might be someone out there that will look at this and go, 'My, I might get caught up in that and actually arrested for that type of behavior and that would deter it.'"
