A 20-year-old man was arrested Friday after attempting to bomb Fort Riley in support of the Islamic State, local Kansas media reports.

John T. Booker Jr., of Topeka, Kan., Was arrested near Junction City as he was attempting to initiate what he thought would be a suicide-bomb attack.

According to US Attorney Barry Grissom, Booker had been in contact with FBI sources and he posed no real threat to Fort Riley, because the explosives he planned to use during the attack were defective.

“The perimeter of Fort Riley was never penetrated, there was never any concern on our part that he would get onto the fort and, unbeknownst to him, the materials that were used to make up this bomb were inert,” Grissom told Kansas Public Radio of the University of Kansas.

Booker is facing federal charges and a penalty of life in prison.
