Rent-a-hitman application gets soldier arrested

A 21yearold member of the Air National Guard in the US state of Tennessee is facing up to ten years in prison after applying for a job at and accepting a downpayment for a contract killing from an undercover FBI agent.

Josiah Ernesto Garcia, 21, has been charged with use of interstate facilities in the commission of murderforhire, the US attorneys office in Nashville said on Thursday.

According to federal prosecutors, Garcia applied for contract mercenary work on the website back in February.

He met with the contact in a Hendersonville, Tennessee park on Wednesday, and was provided with the downpayment and a fictional target packet. After Garcia asked if he needed to show proof of the deed, he was arrested by the FBI.

Another 21yearold guard airman was arrested on Friday.

Saying he needed more money for his family, he bragged about being an expert marksman with several weapons, nicknamed Reaper.

Im looking for a job, that pays well, related to my military experience (Shooting and Killing the marked target) so I can support my kid on the way, the criminal complaint quotes Garcia as saying in a followup email. What can I say, I enjoy doing what I do, so if I can find a job that is similar to it, (such as this one) put me in coach turned out to be a trap.
