A former consultant for Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign was arrested after he allegedly planted loaded weapons and ammunition inside a Tennessee corrections facility that was under construction in an attempt to carry out a future jailbreak, authorities said.

Criminal justice reform advocate Alex Friedmann, who was not an inmate but allegedly was plotting to help prisoners escape when the facility opened, was arrested Tuesday on one count of felony vandalism, but Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall said during a press conference Wednesday that the allegations go far beyond that.

The article goes on to state the following:

The opening of the Nashville detention center, which was slated for April, was indefinitely postponed after his arrest, according to the Tennessean.

Sheriff Hall revealed in the press conference, “Throughout the last several weeks it was discovered that Mr. Friedmann, over many months, had developed and implemented an extremely deliberate – and in my opinion evil – plan. Understand, this plan went far beyond vandalism. Ultimately it included planting various tools, weapons, security equipment throughout this facility. All designed to assist in a massive escape plan.”

The sheriff said on Dec. 30, construction officials noticed two keys were missing. After reviewing surveillance video, they saw a man “dressed as a construction worker who matched Friedmann’s description taking a key ring, then coming back and replacing it with two keys missing.”

According to the report, Freidmann was one of several consultants who advised Sen. Bernie Sanders on criminal justice issues during his 2016 presidential campaign.
