Informant's Tip Leads to Cache and Insurgent (Iraq)

TIKRIT, Iraq - Soldiers from 2nd Brigade, 4th Iraqi Army and 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, discovered a cache west of Bayji May 7 based on information from an informant.


The cache included an IED ready for placement, nine anti-tank mines, eight hand grenades, various other weapons and IED making equipment, as well as an improvised rocket launcher.

An Explosive Ordnance Disposal team conducted a control led detonation of the cache.

Another tip from the informant led the Coalition Soldiers to an individual who is suspected to be tied to the cache and the leader of an anti-Iraqi terrorism cell in the province.

The suspected insurgent was taken to a nearby military facility for further questioning.
