According to police, five men from New York have been arrested for attempting to get into the U.S. Army Natick Soldiers System Center in Natick with a car full of fake credit cards and stolen electronics. The men attempted to bluff their way into the secure lab with fake ID's.

At the front gate, Army police immediately identified their fake IDs and apprehended the men. After a search of the 2012 Chevy Suburban, Army police located around 40 counterfeit credit cards, and a significant amount of stolen electronics.

The Natick lab is responsible for researching, developing, fielding and managing many different types of soldier support items. Leonard Marcus, a terrorism expert from Harvard, said that "it could very well have been an innocent attempt at robbery or it could have been some much larger effort on their part." The five suspects were arraigned in Framingham District Court on Tuesday.
