48-year-old Mark Barnett was plotting to set off bombs inside several East Coast locations of the retail store, cops say. He offered someone $10,000 to put at least 10 explosives on store shelves according to a police report. But his plan was foiled investigators say after that person turned Barnett in. According to the court documents, Barnett thought the bombs would cause Target stock prices to drop allowing him to buy cheap shares in the company before prices rebounded.
