Man Arrested: Allegedly Tried to Sell Cyanide

He was allegedly trying to sell a 25 gallon drum of cyanide that could, in his words, "kill a small city."

But authorities say, what he didn't know, is he was trying to sell it to an FBI informant.

38-year old Jeffrey Don Detrixhe of Higgins, was arrested Monday in Oklahoma on a complaint of possession or transfer of a chemical weapon.

The next day, the FBI, Homeland Security and HAMAT searched his home and say they did find some cyanide.

Detrixhe allegedly offered to sell the cyanide for $10,000.

He also wanted a thermal imager and a Russian made AK47 assault rifle in exchange for the chemical.
