[Lehighton, New Canaan] - “Today is as much an example of the excellence of our people as it is a reminder of the challenges we still have left to overcome,” said Abigail McCalmont, Premier of New Canaan.
The Roxborough District of Lehighton became the center of a media and police frenzy after agents of the Commonwealth Bureau for Homeland Tranquility (CBHT) descended on a downtown coffee shop in startling numbers. In addition to the store, agents secured a blue Raimer R400 parked just outside. Within moments, the agents brought out two individuals in handcuffs as the rest moved to blockade the area.
Senior Supervisory Special Agent Eli Reed of the CBHT made himself available for questions to the media, which arrived minutes after the operation began. Agent Reed confirmed that the CBHT had acted on a three-week investigation, in cooperation with local law enforcement, on what was believed to be an attempt to set off a car bomb in downtown Lehighton.
“Our investigation remains in the early stages,” Agent Reed stated “However, we are able to declare that the area is safe and there is no reason to be concerned of future terrorist activity.”
In later interactions, the CBHT confirmed that the actors responsible were tied with the League of Nativist Canaanites. A variation of the group has existed throughout history with varying degrees of support amongst the populous with an equally varying arsenal of strategies for advocacy. Consistently, the group has maintained that the State of New Canaan is by right an independent nation with no allegiance to the Commonwealth Treaty. They have taken a strong stance that any arrangement short of independence is unacceptable.
The Union of New Canaanite Integrity, another group dedicated to the preservation of New Canaan’s unique identity within the Commonwealth System, condemned the apparent actions of the League of Nativist Canaanites.
“Their decision to invoke violence will set back any progress we’ve collectively made over the centuries,” says Dagon Alloways, President of the Union.
New Canaan Premier McCalmont stated that her government was working very closely with the CBHT and that they feel this particular incident was an outlier brought on by radicals instead of a new strategy that the LNC seeks to employ to further their message.
“There’s a countless number of lives saved today,” Premier McCalmont stated “We’ll make sure that the peace of our State and indeed the Commonwealth will not be compromised by several radical actors pushing a belief system entirely contrary to the goals and mutual ambitions of our people.”
The two individuals arrested today were not named due to the ongoing nature of the investigation.
